I have a little bit of everything...mostly European (especially Irish), plus Native American (Cherokee, IIRC - may have been a different, more Californian tribe; I really ought to ask my grandmother again). And then there's little bits from pretty much everywhere in the world.

In summary, I'm American. :D

If you mean the one in which they showed scene from Game of Death then I have.

I am actually half Italian and half Cuban, but being born and raised in New York City, as well as having the Italian side of my family come through Ellis Island in the early 1900's and settling in Manhattan, then the Bronx, I do consider being from New York a part of my heritage.

I'm not really sure from which side of the family my origins are. But I know the irish came from mom's side and I know the italian came from my dads side.

...For those who havent heard that term, "Pip" comes from the phrase "Pipped to the post" which was *originally* used by journalists to describe the winner of a horse race that had come from further afield :D Im pretty sure its used in the UK as well, so nowdays, to pip someone means to have the advantage on them, or to precede etc...

If I went to read all my family book, I would find that my mother's family name comes from Holland. There aren't really anything but Danish blood in that family to my knowledge...

My father's is a mixture of Danish, Swedish, and Finnish.

So, European, mostly Scandinavian :)

I noticed that many have family from Germany. How many actually speak/write German in here?

Exactly....I think having 30% of something is...like...impossible mathematics when it comes to genetics.......since you get half of your genes from your father, and half from your mom, and they each got half from each of their parents.

Thusly, your genetics can only be in halves...

Six are spanish, two are french. What does six and two equal? 8.

I'm wrong somewhat, though. My example still applies, only to the person's great grandparents.
