    Mostly English ancestors I think. Not really bothered to research it. My mom goes on and on about how we share a bloodline with the Tudors but I really don't care. Supposedly also have Scots-Irish and Native American(If I do have any, it definitely doesn't show up.) My dad's side is Greek and German but the name is English.

    Basically, I'm a mutt.

    I'm American of mixed European ancestry, one quarter of each of the following: Ukrainian, Slovak, Italian, Irish. My last name is Italian.

    100% Kenyan. Born there and grew up else where.
    My cold, snide, intellectual life is just a veneer, behind which lies the plywood of loneliness.

    Do we still consider Ashkenazi an ethnicity, or is that racist now?

    Contrary to some people's guess that I am part Asian , I have a totally European heritage: German, Spanish, Italian, and a little French & Ukrainian.
    Often a star was waiting for you to notice it. A wave rolled toward you out of the distant past, or as you walked under an open window, a violin yielded itself to your hearing. All this was mission. But could you accomplish it? (Rilke)

    English & English with a Russian Grandfather into the mix. Although traipsing through my ancestory would, i'm sure, reveal many other diversities.

    Half English/Half Irish.

    Your statement on Ireland - I felt exactly the same way. I didn't feel that way in England.

    Family's been in the United States for about 90 or 100 years.

    A Polish line, an Italian line, an Eastern European Jewish line, and a Syrian Jewish line.

    I do find tracing ancestry interesting. I don't have "pride" about where my ancestors came from, since it wasn't my choice or my effort, but I do wonder why my great-grandparents left their various countries to come to the United States.

    So I've taken a little interest lately in getting to know my roots a little better, in seeing what they saw, basically. Things like learning the recipes for food of those cultures, reading about the social/cultural/political history, and over time maybe learning the languages (since I vaguely wanted to learn more languages already, anyway).

    You can't spell "justice" without ISTJ.
