Polish, German, and Irish.

To be specific.... the genealogy research shows that I am descended from Polish kings, German farmers, and Irish murderers.

Genealogy is my hobby! My Dad was from Poland (1/2). On my Mother's side I've got German (1/4), Irish (1/8), and British (1/8).

I'm pretty much a mish-mash of European descent. I've done a lot of ancestry research but it is hard in my family as the trails stop for most sides of the family in the early 1800s. My family has been in North America forever. I was the 9th generation born in Texas alone. It is assumed my last name is an Anglicized German last name but we don't know for sure.

I did trace a few sides of the family back to England, Ireland, and Germany. I think those are probably the main countries though my mom's maiden name was definitely Scottish. There'd always been rumors of so-and-so having Indian in them but I've found absolutely zero of that in my research.

The best recorded side of the family is the Earp side. Yes, that would be Wyatt Earp's family. I always feel like I should be more badass.

ETA: The Earps came from Ireland.

Irish (great-great grandparents came over during the Potato Famine in Ireland; family history says great-great grandmother was put on a ship to come to America that was becalmed on the way. The only food left to eat onboard by the time they docked were oranges. She never touched another orange for the rest of her life); also German, English.
An ancestor of Dad's is the one who struck Richard III in the head with a halberd and saved Henry VII during the Battle of Bosworth; he was allowed to marry one of Henry's cousins as a reward, so Dad is distantly related to the Tudors.

True dat! Although, I've got some german and such from my dad's mom's side.

But my mom's dad's parents came over on a boat and we still have the trunk they used to bring their belongings. I actually have much of my geneology somewhere that I had to interview relatives to get for a high school project. As annoying and weird as it was at the time, I like having it!
