    Place Exotic Ancestry

    Here is a challenge.

    I will say right now that this man is 12/16ths British Isles ancestry and 1/16th Southern European. Try to place the rest [all coming from outside Europe].

    One clue: the exotic ancestry does not come from any British colony.

    There looks to be something Middle Eastern/South Asian about him, but I'm guessing it's going to be something more surprising than that. So I'll say he has some kind of Pacific Island ancestry.

    1/16 Southern European & 3/16 "exotic". 1/16 + 3/16 = 1/4 or one grandparent who was probably from Latin America. So 1/16 Spanish (or maybe Portuguese) & 3/16 some exotic Latin American blend of Medish European + Amerindian & maybe some Congoid. He has an upperclass Hispanic/Latino look.

    Edit: I figured out who it is. I was right about the one grandparent & the Portuguese but was off on the rest. I always thought this guy was weird looking considering his surname.

    The Portuguese element in itself could well be a blend of Medish, African & possibly Amerindian considering it comes from the Azores.

    OK, since it has been a couple of days I'll blurt it out. His name is David Strathairn, an American actor. He has one grandparent from Hawaii of Portuguese (Azorean), Chinese & Hawaiian descent. There are a lot of odd looking people in Hawaii.

    David Strathairn's great-grandparents :
    George Strathairn [b. Scotland]
    Julia Fanny Scott [b. Ireland]
    James Alana [b. Hawaii to Chinese father and ethnic-Hawaiian mother]
    Rita K. Lei [b. Hawaii to Portuguese father and ethnic-Hawaiian mother]
    John Robert Frazier [b. West Virginia]
    Lelia Adelia George [b. West Virginia]
    Thomas Johnson [b. Canada]
    Margaret Fiddes [b. Canada]
    (all born 1850s-1870s).

    12/16 British Isles origin
    1/16 Chinese
    1/16 Portuguese [Azores]
    2/16 ethnic Hawaiian


    If I had to guess without knowing the answer, I would have guessed as Patrioten and Hrodnand did (Iranian), which is not even close How strange that having such 1/4 origins as these and 3/4 British-Isles could turn out an Iranian?

    Wikipedia is wrong. I thought mostly Corded like Mediterrianid or something akin to that.
