    Post Where do you trace your heritage from?

    I think it would be wise to get an idea as to where in Europe our posters come/descend from.
    This is a simplified version of those "what ethnicity are you" type polls.
    North = from the southernmost portion of the UK up.
    Central = from just below southern UK through to southern Austria.
    South = from just below southern Austria down.
    The West/East divide is the German/Poland border.

    Hi,

    Yes, interesting question....

    I'm lucky enough to have been able find the necessary records to trace about 90% of my ancestry in the New World to the immigrants who came here. The 'lion's share' of my ancestry is from the colonial Dutch who settled along the Hudson River in what is now New York State. Next in line, in terms of percentages, are the English who came to New England and Germans who also settled alongside the Dutch in New York. After that, I have smatterings of Scot & Irish and one Danish immigrant to round things off. I've got a few more lines to trace but based on the surnames, it should turn out to be more of the same.

    Most of my ancestry dates back, here in America, to the 1600s and early 1700s. My most recent immigrant ancestors were Irish who came first to Prince Edward Island in Canada and then to Boston, MA in the 1830s and 1840s.

    So....I voted NW Europe.

    I think I am mostly from South Western Europe, but I am blonde and my father is fair haired (he was, bald now) and dark blue eyed so I do not know what else is thrown in there.

    Maybe she should have preceded her post with "Of" and ended it with "decent" to make it bit clearer for you.

    My heritage is mainly British of the "invader" type on my Mom's side which includes Viking and Anglo-Saxon types. Everyone on that side of the family is blonde, red-haired,and teutonic looking. My father is mainly Keltic English with a mix of blonde and various shades of brown hair. He also has German heritage from the 19th century, but I think it has been more or less diluted. The germans, as opposed to Southern Europeans, Catholics, Jews, and various other people of European origin, more readily inter-married with the base American population and assimulated more quickly into society. This is why you see old Italian blood with the original culture , language, and blood still intact even though the original immigrants arrived over a hundred years ago. Many people in America today have German surnames but profess little german culture and many of the original surnames have been drastically altered or completely translated from the original. One thing I have noticed is that everyone of my blood relatives has blue eyes despite mixing with brown eyed outsiders.

    Mostly Spain and Ireland, with a small dose of English blood. So West European.
    All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream at night, in the dusky recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity. But the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams, with open eyes, to make it possible.
