Default What is your heritage?

I'm 1/4 Dutch, 1/4 Irish, and 1/2 English. My dad's side of the family came over on the Mayflower.

What about you?

I am half Chinese and half English (technically 1/32 Italian on my English side... but I think that's too dilute to count!)

ETA: and I am first generation Canadian. Both my parents immigrated to Canada prior to meeting.

And I get sick of fielding "is that your REAL mother?" so I used to tell people I was adopted from a Russian orphanage and then laugh when people believed me.

Polish, Slovakian, Italian.... with some other random countries thrown in for good measure.

That's really all I know about my heritage, not something that's ever really been talked about much. No clue when anyone came over here or any of that.

My dad's side is predominantly German. My mom is mainly English and German, with a hint of Native American. I'm sure there are other nationalities in there as well, especially on my mom's side.

No idea when we migrated over. I think my dad has us traced back 5 generations?

All Chinese, so pretty boring

Mother is from Henan, father is from Shanghai. They met here in Oregon, though, after they came to the US, so I was born here in Portland.

My mom's side is German, my dad's side is Norwegian. So Norwegian that it was a bit of a scandal that my father married a German woman.

My husband's lineage is more interesting. Aside from being his own little melting pot, he has some Romany ancestry and apparently at some point a pair of young lovers ran off to America because their parents didn't approve due to differences in their families' social standing.

This is something I really wish I knew more about. I'd love to find out about my ancestors.

All I know is I'm Irish (that's clear by my freckles, and moms red hair lol) and some German thrown in there per my grandma's info.

My maternal side- my mom was born in the US, but my grandmother is English and my grandfather was Danish. (Not just in heritage, but both were born and raised in England and Denmark, respectively, and immigrated here later in life.)
My paternal side- my grandpa was French Canadian and my grandma is American, I know she's part Irish going back.
