    French-Canadian, so mostly French ancestry, but also some German, Irish and Scottish (not much, though).

    I'm the whitest guy ever.

    How about the green eyes? Some long ago English sea captain perhaps?

    How do any of us really know what lurks deep within? So much of it is word of mouth even word of mouth written down. We all know that can be faulty. Would the DNA testing tell anything?

    You make a good point, as all of us have variant traces of ethnic blood, I think. However, when talking about blood quantums, specifically for indigenous peoples, we trace back 4 generations. With that said, my mother's family (parents and grandparents) were all native. My father's family (parents and grandparents) where all native, too... for the last 4 generations... (actually, longer than that). But, if we get techincal... yes, generations back there lurks some Irish, Scot, English blood in there. Hell, pilgrims and settlers hit the east coast first and mixed marriages did occur. Fact. :)

    Either way... I still have those sexy bedroom eyes (and for the record... they are hazel - bluish green, grey, green with brown specs, etc). ;)

    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.

    I don't know the exact breakdowns...

    I know I'm 1/4 Italian...
    Cherokee Indian
    French
    German
    Irish

    I think I look more Indian and Italian than anything. Dark hair, dark eyes, olive complexion... I'd be interested in knowing where my nose came from, though. Doesn't look like an Italian or Indian nose.
