    I'm mostly Irish with some Scottish.
    Does it matter? Hell yeah! I'm just as ignorant and crazy as my heritage suggests! :-D

    I'm about 45% German from my moms side and 5% french; however, my dads side is anyone's guess.

    I could say I was English if I went on US lines of where you're 'English' side came from but my english is actually a mix of French and Norwegian which makes me Celtic/Anglo Saxon so I'm like everyone else - a mongrel!!!
    Europeans moved around so much in pre-history and even more modern history
    Those of you with American Indian blood may have read Thor Heyerdahls works on anthropology, he studied the American Indian quite a lot and did his expeditions using crafts built to ancient specifications to prove how people travelled across seas in those days. He found two distinct types - the ones that had crossed the Bering Straits at about the same time as the last american horses went in the opposite direction and into Mongolia and Russia and another 'type' that he saw had strong similarities to people from the areas around Egypt

    Ooh how interesting. Does subsequent DNA research bear that out? Or did the study involve DNA?
