50% Italian on my dad’s side (and I have a super-cool Italian maiden name, which is now my middle name).

25% Croatian/Slovenian (not sure about border issues, lol) and 25% Western-European-mutt-been-in-the-States-forever on my mom’s side.

I look verrrrry Italian, though when I studied abroad in Mexico everybody thought I was Mexican!

It’s funny, people from so cal never ask, people from back east always ask, mainly due to my unusual last name.

I’m Prussian & Russian & who knows what else during the era of the ever shifting Baltic states on my father’s side.

My mother’s side is Lithuanian. 

The men on my father’s side were land barons & cossacks.  It’s funny how that has manifest in our collective bloodline.  My paternal cousins & I all share a great love for horses.  My uncle owned thoroughbreds.

Some of us are also hard core German Shepherd people.

I think it all ties together.  We’re on opposite unds of the country yet have much in common.

Someday, I’m going to spend the money & go om ancestry.com.

  • Wedding: November 2016 - Highfield House, Stanley, Tasmania

I was born in Australia, and my family has been here since the 1840s. My father’s side came as convicts from Yorkshire, and my mother’s side came as free settlers from Sussex. I also have some Aboriginal ancestry, but I don’t know very much about that part of my ancestry. 

My Fiance is Brazilian, and he is a mix of Italian, Portuguese, native Brazilian, and possibly German.
