where are your ancestors from? i was thinkin about it and i thought it would be fun to know where everyone was from.
my great-grandpa came to America from Norway. i think that is soooo cool. my favorite part of epcot is norway. their accents are awsome. and the statues of the like Eric the REd and everyone from Norway, me and my sis have like the same facial structure.....i know its just a coincidence probably but i still think it is pretty amazin...

Technically...by blood...
My dad's great-grandparents came from Italy on his dad's side and Poland from his mom's side.

My mom was adopted, so we don't know much..I'm guessing if we based it on looks, her parents came from Ireland and Russia.

My dad's grandparents were immigrants from Italy, so my grandpa was 100% Italian. My dad's mom, my grandma, has ancestors from Norway, Australia, and I'm pretty sure Germany. And my mom's side of the family is from England, Ireland, and Scotland. She said they came over on the Mayflower.

Yeah, I'm a mutt. :p

My mom is from Spain.
My dad's great great grandparents came here from Ireland and Germany. There were two women from the West Indies and England, but their blood line has died out.

I believe on my dad's side, his family has always been in England. Then on my mum's side, it's England, Ireland, Scotland, Australia and Spain.

My maternal grandmother is German. My maternal Grandfather is Dutch/ Swedish (or at least I think it's Swedish). My Paternal grandparents are British. Although I think I have some Greek too, just because of my last name, which I'm not going to disclose.:p

My maternal grandfather was native american and french canadian. My maternal grandmother is french canadian. My paternal grandfather was Irish and my paternal grandmother was Irish and English.

My mother is native american and french canadian. My father is Irish and English.

So that makes me Native American, French Canadian, Irish and English. I got all the good stereotypical genes, too. I have dark hair and semi dark skin (Native American), I'm super awesome (French Canadian), I'm always lucky (Irish), and I'm always allowed to sound smarter than I really am just because of how I talk (English. That's an inside joke between my friend Molly and Me- we were talking one day about how little English kids always sound so smart just because of their accent!)

10-22-2008, 05:29 PM
I'm German, French, and a small bit Native American I believe.

Lets see my ancestors are from Poland, Germany, Ireland, and France.

And I'm also Native American (Cherokee).

My mom's side of the family is from Scotland and my dad is from Ukraine.

10-22-2008, 05:48 PM
Hmm, I have ties to nearly everywhere in Europe, but I'm mostly Irish, English, and Cajun (sp?).

English on both sides, but everything on my dad's.

If you're part Cajun you're part ex-Acadian.
The Cajuns were chucked outta NB, NS & PEI when France lost the war and we were no longer New France...
