I’m another Mutt. I actually have 5 nationalities in me, but I just tell people Swedish  and German (3rd generation to be born in the US for both, woo!) since those are the main two.

@howtobeawife:  interesting! My great grandparents were right off the boat from Scotland, and a second cousin of mine traced my moms family’s linage back to a small town in medival England (and published a book about it!)

Another mutt here too. 

Confirmed:

  • Welsh

 

  • Irish

 

  • German

 

  • Scottish

 

  • Cherokee 

 

  • Creek

All of my Irish blood shows through because I apparently got all the reccessive genes my family has to offer. My great great grandfather immigrated to America from Ireland at some point towards the end of the potato famine. He ended up in Texas where he met and married my Cherokee great great grandmother. They then moved to Alabama.

I’m Belgian, Scottish and English. My FI is Metis and Ukranian, but he looks really Metis as he takes after his dad. When I first met FFIL, he asked me what my heritage was. I replied with the above, and his reply was, “oh, that’s very … caucasian.” LMAO.

Scottish and German. I’m a direct descendant of William Wallace (Braveheart) on my dad’s side, and my great great grandparents on my mom’s side immigrated here from Germany.

Irish, English, Welsh, and Cherokee. I identify most (physically and culturally) as Irish, but I get that (and the Cherokee) from my dad’s side. 

My great grandma wrote a book about our heritage on her side (her grandparents came over here from England), but I don’t think it ever got published.

I guess I’m a Slavic Mutt:  Ukrainian, Polish, Czech and a tiny bit of German thrown in for good measure.
