    As most of us will agree, almost NOBODY is a pure race, especially in America.

    This has nothing to do with size, so it's going in etcetera.

    I want to know what people are made of! =D List as much of your ethnic background as you know.


    My ancestors on my mom's side come from both Jamaica and the Dominican Republic/Haiti.

    My mom's great grandmother was part German.

    My Dad's side is black (though, I don't know which basing) with a lot of caucasian mixed (half the family was purely white skinned). They are part of the Netter family, which was predominately white (I'm assuming Brit-based, with the name Netter).

    My Grandpa is partially Mexican, on my dad's side.
    My mom's side has more white in it but I don't know much about it yet.
    There is also the fact that my background likely includes slavechildren, so who knows what's mixed in there.

    My last name is Maughmer (the gh is said like an F. Dad's side of the family) and I have no idea what nationality that is.

    Various last names (that I know of) from both families:
    Maughmer
    Netter
    Dorsette
    Mamby

    So, in short I'm part:

    Jamaican
    Haitian/Dominican
    German
    Mexican
    African(?)
    Brittish(?)
    And likely some other chunky soup mix

    If anyone has any clues on the nationalities of the last names I've listed, tell me! =D




    So, let's hear from you guys! :eek:

    Kind of off topic, but I had a teacher from Nigeria. His accent was strong but it sounded amazing. I also met a female exchange student from Nigeria. She had the most beautiful (and enviable! >=[) facial features.

    And holy cow, Triumph! That's some chunky soup, alright! :3

    I think it would have been easier to list what you aren't. :biggrin1:

    I'm my family genealogist and have traced some lines back 40 generations so I have a good idea. In order of descent:

    Saxon English (by far), Norman English/French, Dutch, Czech, Scots, German, Swedish, Welsh, and Norwegian. Others may include Polish, Italian, and Roman (if Cole Hen was Roman).

    I'm lucky to know as much as I do thanks to some great work done mostly by others. Of all my ancestors, the one that amuses me most is Bjorn the Loud, given that name for his prodigious ability to fart with gusto.

    As previously stated:
    Black
    Cherokee

    Irish (County Kilkenny)

    I have always found it interesting that most White People always know the exact fractions of their ethnicity. The Black people I know don't do that even though most of us have some other nationality mixed in as well.
