My mom is full blooded Egyptian although she wasn't born in Egypt. She's lived in Saudia Arabia(sp), Egypt, West Virginia, and on and on. My dad is American (I think he has traces of German and Italian) and was born and raised in Connecticuit. He moved to North Carolina when he was in the Air Force. So - I'm half and half. American and Egyptian. Very nice mix, well, I think so. :-)
LOL Boston! If it is, I am 100% Redneck, 50% German, and 50% Polish (there are my good Redneck fraction skills, LOL). I was born & raised in Kaiserslaughtern, Germany. ---Allie the Chihuahua http://www.dogster.com/?41063 ---Mönica the Kitty http://www.catster.com/?57596
I'm not sure if I want to share my nationality. But, okay. I'm Native American. Pure Native American. When I was a child, my grandfather taught me all about the Native American way of life. From the time I was 5 till I was 13. That's all I am, Native American. I married a Native American man too. That is what we are, Native American. I can speak English only. I am Native American, born and raised on the land. I'm no hillbilly, I've just learned to live off the land from my grandfather. I adopted my daughter when she was three years old from the Philipines. But, strangley enough, I was told she also has Native American blood! My other daughter, who I adopted when she was four, was born in the Philipines, but is Canadian and Native American. I was born in the United States of America, and am a citizen only of this country. Okay, I think I've dragged on long enough here. lol My mother was born and raised in the United States too. I am Native American born and raised, and live in the US. I speak only English. I'm pure Native American, and proud of it! I am 100% Native American. I guess you could call me a purebred, as I only have one nationatlity, Native American.
My mother is Cajun and still has a thick Cajun accent my dad is Scottish/Irish decent. I have 7 redheaded aunts on my dads side I just knew that when I had kids that I would have a redhead but I didn't. I suppose if I had a girl I might had. I am very fair skinned and my hair is auburn/red.
I'm a mix of a lot of european descents. Mainly German and Irish. I was born in Colorado and come from a long line of miners on my mom's side. One of our historical mining towns here, if you go into their library, almost every historical book they have on the town and the surrounding towns have information and pictures about my family. My great great grandmother's house is still in that town and people take tours of it. I even have the piano that was once hers and in that house. Still works. Built in 1899, play it everyday :)
I'm a mix. I have German, English, and Cherokee Indian. Mostly German. My last name came from my German ancestors. My ancestors came mostly from Manheim, Germany so when they came to America they changed it to Manning. My mom's dad looks a lot like a Cherokee Indian but he isn't full or half. My mom and grandpa have the high cheek bones which is what I think the Cherokees have. I look like my German and English ancestors. I have blonde hair, blue eyes, and fair skin. I know english fluently...I know a little spanish, sign language, german, and very little cherokee. I wish I knew them fluently but I don't.
Hope no one minds me bringing up this old post, but I wasn't a member when it was brought up before.
By blood, I am Native American. My son and I are both members of the Sault Sainte Marie Band of Ojibwe Indians. Our tribe is the largest in the Great Lakes area. I enjoy learning about my colorful background, love to attend Pow Wows, do beadwork and listen to Native American drum and flute music.
However, I was adopted at age 3 days and raised in, what I feel, is the most wonderful culture, Lebanese. My Dad was full blooded Lebanese, his parents immigrated from Lebanon in the late 1890's. They were both from the same small country in the Middle East, but didn't know each other in the old country. Somehow they both settled in Upper Michigan and met, the rest is history.
My Grandfather started a confectionary and grocery store in 1906 and began making hand-dipped, home made chocolates. He used recipes that were brought over from Lebanon. 98 years later, the candy store continues to thrive and is run by the 3rd generation.
I feel I was fortunate enough to be raised Lebanese. The family was close knit, everyone gathering at our Grandmothers home for all holidays. By the time I was born, my Grandfather was dead, so I never had the opportunity to meet him, but heard so many stories about this wonderful immigrant who came to call the US home.
I've always just called myself a kentucky/ohio mutt but my dads side of the family is pure polish and my moms side is enlish and indian. Around where I live a lot of peoples relatives live in kentucky. In school I remember everyone talking about our trips to kentucky. I think it is because of the ford plant . My grandpa came up here to work along with a ton of others. Apparently my moms boyfriends mom yells at everyone in polish. This just made me notice that she has a thing for polish guys!
I am American, I do know from my mom's geneology that Pocahontas is my 13th generation grandmother, and I am a member of the Daughter's of the American Revolution. My hubby is Mexican both his parents are from Mexico, he's from Cali. I actually thought he was Italian when we first met!
