@musical-lady:  Yeah I think that’s how most Serbian people look! All of my SO’s family members, and a most of our Serbian friends have a somewhat darker complexion with black hair and dark brown eyes! It’s always interesting how genetics work ๐Ÿ™‚

@souza_2005:  I can relate I’m half black and culturally latina (100% Caribbean) and people, especially within my own culture, have questioned my heritage because I look too “black” (their words). Even though being latino isn’t a race, but anyway.


My heritage – 100% Caribbean, Latina and West Indian (Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic and St. Lucia), born and raised in NYC.

Everything? I’m sure there are lots of little pieces I’m not aware of.  Mostly Czech/Slovak and German though (50%), followed by Swedish.  And then some Native American (sioux) and French to a lesser extent.  My mom is from a Czech town in the midwest.

I don’t know about Darling Husband, definitely lots of German as we have a very strong German last name.

My mom’s parents emigrated to canada from England, and my dad’s mom is one of those 5th generation Canadians from mainly Scottish/British ancestry who could very well have a long distant Métis connection… But my Dad’s father’s family is so snobbishly Dutch that they not only a) have a noble honorific attached to our name but b) many of them use it.

@lenabee:  Let’s see!

My mom emigrated from Guyana her senior year in high school. It’s a relatively poor country in South America, so documentation isn’t the best. From what she knows, her mother is African, Indian, and Chinese, while her father is British and Portugese. 

My dad is African American, and supposedly Native American. 

I look like the typical African American with a few freckles lol.

1/4 Australian, 1/8 (at least) Native American, and then just a mash of everything European. You can really see the Native American in my dad, but not at all in me.

Darling Husband is 1/4 Scottish, 1/4 Dutch and 1/2 Scotts-Irish. He’s whiter than you can imagine, COVERED in freckles and has flaming red hair! On his mom’s side he’s actually only second generation Canadian, which I think is pretty cool.

@LittleWigeon:  Snap. English 3 English Grandparents and 1 Welsh!

But even my last name, which is one of the English lot has Welsh origins so I may be more Welsh than I thought. I’ve got quite a rare second name in the UK, but there are hundreds of us in the US. Seems like most of the family left the UK 100 years ago and settled accross the pond.

Anglo Saxon with probably the tiniest dash of Viking.
