I’m half German and half everything else!
What’s every1 else?
November 2, 2008 at 2:56 pm #86881alextempletParticipant
One half Irish, one quarter German, one quarter French by blood. Culturally I identify more with my French ancestry, as that is the family I was raised with and French became my first language.

Maybe your a little Goth or Hun, perhaps some Bulgarian, or even Roman ? Be hard to say I bet. Long heritage in Europe.

In that case, my French blood could easily have originated from Celts, Germans, or Romans. Maybe even a little English or Iberian, who knows?
November 5, 2008 at 2:20 am #86962
as far back as I can trace my origins (1300s) I am Romanian.
November 5, 2008 at 3:01 am #86965quote MrMistery:
In the 1300’s Romania was under two principalities, Moldavia and Walachia later which fell to the Ottoman’s. Was not until the unification of Moldavia and Walachia in the 1800’s that Romania was recognized as a Nation, according to my internet sources.
Considering the location of Romania, I am sure the history is quite rich. With Ottomans to the south, Romans, goths and Germanians all around. Must of been quite a difficult place to live back in the medieval time period. I think I wish to read more about this place…

Most Filipinos are already multiracial as well, brought by the early colonization and the widespread globalization today. It is sad however that many had left the country and most of them had also forgot already their rich heritage. My grand parents were part Spanish by blood. But for me, I am proud to say that I am 100% Pinoy! how I wanted to see a great change in this small country, relive once more the Bayanihan that Filipinos in the past used to do in their communities.

actually Romania was divided between Moldavia, Walachia and Transilvania, and a few other minor provinces.
PS: It’s not the ideal home now either 😆

Mostly french from what I can trace (there is one polish great grand mother). But the next generation of my family is extremely diverse.

English with Irish ancestors, I think my ancestors made a beeline for England due to the potato famine.
December 13, 2008 at 4:32 pm #87778David GeorgeParticipant
100% Indian.Due to a rigid caste system still followed in India i don’t think i have any possibility of being multiracial.
Yeah casteism is so damn useless…

Nationality is technically what country you are legally a citizen of, rather than who your ancestors were.
I’m South American as I was born there, Israeli as my mum registered me when I was little and also British.
If I was to include ancestors, I’ll have to say Polish and possibly German or Dutch, going by my surname.

Ahhh, What about expats who move from one country to another. A person from Brazil could become a Canadian but they are still from Brazil.
January 22, 2009 at 1:52 pm #88619SepalsParticipant
But it’s still technically their nationality, prehaps not their culture.
February 13, 2009 at 3:54 pm #89050JonesParticipant
I’m half Irish, my mothers side and half English on my fathers side…
Literally like, nothing else… That I know of.
But then again if you want to get technical I suppose being half of each could mean there’s some Norweigen and other European blood in there. Like anglo-saxon and whatnot… Way down the line.
So nevermind, it’s not that boring. lol 😆
And he’s right, it’s really only heritage.
As far as nationality and ethnicity, I’m American, and I’m more than obviously white.
February 15, 2009 at 12:39 pm #89112BlackCatParticipant
100% portuguese as far as I know.
It´s not a great contry nowadays but I´m proud being portuguese…
February 28, 2009 at 6:30 am #89386AstusAleatorParticipant
English, Irish, german-speaking Swiss, French, Dutch, Scottish, and a few other UK places that I can’t remember.
I’m essentially a European mutt with mostly English and Irish.
I’ve always been jealous of my friends that have Native American or some such blood to spice up their genes :D.

Technically then I am American 🙂
My ancestors came from Canada, Scotland and Ireland.

25.0% native American,
I hail from the U.S.
September 30, 2013 at 12:05 pm #114428JackBeanParticipant
one of your parents contributed by 60% of hereditary material or how did you get such interesting numbers?
September 30, 2013 at 3:47 pm #114432wildfunguyParticipant
The ~ are only rough quantities that were given by my parents years ago. Both parents had German, and perhaps both of them had Irish. I don’t remember exactly.
I just know that my real grandfather was 100% native American. My brother independently verified this claim of my mother’s about our geneology. But we all have "white" skin tone.
That said, I’m sure my mother did contribute more hereditary material. After all, the X chromosome is bigger than the Y, and I recieved her mtDNA.
