Lets see I am an American. Both of my parents were born in America and my dad's parents were born in America. My mom's parents were born in America. I think but I am not positive that my mom's dad's mom was 100% Apache. I do know I have a lot of Dutch in there from my dad's side and possibly some German from my mom's side.

Both Parents were born in the U.S. so I'm American. All my grandparents were born here as well.

The closest relative I have to a foreign country would probably be my great-great grandma as she was from Ireland.

Otherwise the settlers on my dad's side came over in the late 1700s from Germany and my moms family came over in the mid 1800s from well England/Ireland.

the cool thing is that one ancestor traced my mom's side all the way back to the 1200s. I have links to Vikings!!

I actually have a very extensive family tree, dating back to 1500's in some lines.

I'm a large mixture of lots of things, German, French, English, and Cherokee mostly, with some Dutch, Irish, Scottish thrown in, and who knows what else I just don't know about yet!

Where my cats are
I'm 50% Italian, 25% German, 19% Polish, and 6% Greek.

Knowing my heritage is a very important thing in my family. I'm a thrid generation American from all but one of my Grandparents, who makes me a 4th generation American.

DH doesn't know his heritage and I find that sad. He knows he has some German, Scotch, and Irish in him, but doesnt know the rest, just that there is more.
