    What Is Your Ethnic Background?

    What is your ethical background? How many different foreign bloodlines do you have? If known, what kind of Germanic tribal ancestry exist in your veins. Also, do you have some non-Germanic ancestors?

    Well, I was meaning it on a larger scale. Ancestry, like ancestors. How far back in history do you know your ethnical ancestry?

    Well on my moms dad’s side I can trace back with complete confidence into the early 1500’s possibly further by legend. On my mom’s mom’s side I can trace back to the late 1500’s. On my dad’s dad’s side I can trace back to at lest the battle of Hastings and before that is based on Legend. On my dads moms side I can trace to about 1575. These are for my most direct four lines…however there are more that have not been researched quite as much.
    For the Ancestors who came before us, the Generations that flow form us, for the Blood that is in our veins.

    In the end, I'm one of the few people that can boast that they are probably purely German...albeit a German mongrel to be honest:

    3/8 Tyrolese (1/16 South Tyrolese)
    1/4 Waldeckian (now an area of Hessen, but ethnically Westphalians)
    1/8 Swabian
    1/16 German-Swiss
    1/16 Salzburgian
    1/16 Upper Austrian (Salzkammergut area...near Hallstatt )
    1/16 Lower Styrian.

    The Lower Styrian and Upper Austrian family lines go back to Silesia at some point, the exact details of this are, however, not known.

    Judging by the surnames, I could technically be a maximum of 1/64 Polish, it is that sole name ending on -ski in my family line. However, for example, a friend is only 1/16 Polish, yet the name continued throughout the line.

    Judging by the actual villages, I could be a maximum 1/128 of the Ladiner (Romantsch dialect) population. My Great-Great-Great-Great-Grandmother in South Tyrol had a German surname, but came from Enneberg, a village that is 97% Ladiner-speaking these days.

    But let's just put it that way - all the ancestors I know of and have been able to track so far, spoke German as their native language ... hence 100% German over here.

    Mostly English, though my paternal 4xgreat-grandfather was Welsh. My German ancestry, including Swiss is somewhere betwee 15% & 18%. I also have Dutch & Huguenot ancestors from colonial times but it is so far back that it is negligible. I prefer to call myself Anglo-American. I would prefer to use the phrase "American" but unfortunately American is also a nationality which can be of any racial background.

    4/4 Occitanian. It's an ethnicity of Francophone continuum (for who doesn't know), but its "demographic" territory include a notable part of actual north-western italy, where i was born.


    I traced back my ancestors on the western side of the Alps to 5 centuries ago (before that, there aren't documents or papers), until early decades of 1500.

    Among my Dutch ancestry I have mainly Lower-Saxon blood, so Eastern part from the Netherlands, Iam aware of atleast one Frisian ancestor, from my mothersside there is ancestry from Frankish line; one of the province of Brabant, Zeeland and one of Northern France.

    Then there is my German part ancestry. My great grandfather came from Eastprussia. Recently I have made more research into my family history, so, there is some more German ancestors. I have ancestry from Westphalia ( near Münster), Bavaria (around Passau), Silesia (Lauban), Rhine (Kleve, Krefeld, Xanten).

    My surname is one of the eldest in the area where I live and means something like Brave Wolf.
