    My mother's mother is Scottish and Irish and her father is English. (Grandma's maiden name is Scott!) Our family settled the Cayman Island's in the late 1600's and early 1700's. My grandparents came to the States in the 1920's and we still have a bunch living in the islands.

    My father's father is from Slavonia and listed his nationality as Croatian. My great grandfather is German, my great grandmother is Hungarian.

    My one American grandparent is mostly German as her maternal grandparents were from Germany. LOL the grandparent I know the least about is the American one!

    Hubby is a Cajun boy. The Cajuns are actually made up of French, Spanish, German, Italian, Austrian and Swiss. Hubby's family mostly traces to French and some German. I am a genealogist and love tracing our family.

    I'm in Australia because of a convict on my dad's side who stole a handerkerchief, so England (I even know what city because of his last name) so I'm partly English.

    The other part of me is Scottish. My great grandmother was a Campbell of Argyle and her line can be traced right back through the Campbell clan.

    My dad tried to convince me that we are related to Odin, the Norse king of the gods because of our surname but I didn't believe him for some reason

    My great-grandfather was also Italian.

    I usually identify as Australian because, although much of my extended family is in the UK, here is my home. If asked, I say that I am from the UK.

    Half Afrikaans, half Norwegian.
    Strange that those two people who lived on opposite ends of the world even met.
    I'm am incredibly lucky and proud of my heritage, although having family at different poles is not easy.

    Scottish and German, mostly. A bit of Welsh. But in America at least 4 generations, so I call myself American.

    I don't know what I am. My grandmother is big into geneology and I'm sure that I could ask her and find out. I know that I'm of European decent, but that's all I've ever been told. I really don't care, I just tell people I'm an all-American white girl if it comes up :)
