what's your heritage? where's your family from? where'd your name (first and last) come from? Why do you look the way you do? do tell.I'm Belgian (Flemish) American, by that I mean my father is from Belgium and half my family lives there.. my mom is a typical American mutt, but from english and french backgrounds generations ago.my name, Veronique Allaer, is from my Flemish blood, and no one in America can pronounce it correctly. hmmm oh and I have very light blonde hair, which is common in northern europe.uhh yeah. your turn.

THE EAST COAST,
My fathers family is very much of Irish heritage with the exception of his father who is from Greece while my mothers background is German (sprinkled with a few other things but not of enough importance to be listed). Though my mom is American she did actually live in Germany for a number of years when she was younger as well as Portugal.Great American Melting pot eh?

Great great grandparents were from China, I was born in Taiwan, both my parents were born in Taiwan, and we live in Canada. I don't have any other blood, as far as I know. :)
THE ARCTIC SEA,
i was born in texas but my great grandfather is from england and my mom was born in france and moved to spain from a young age and my dad is mexican. it's complicated.so french, american, spanish, and english and mexican.
THE DARK SIDE OF THE MOON,
Dad's side - ItalianMom's side - English, with distant Scottish and French roots, and Russian/Austrian-Jewish with distant Polish roots. My colouring is dark brown/black hair, hazel-brown eyes, and pale skin. As for features, I have thick eyebrows, strong jawline, almond shaped eyes, high cheekbones, and a defined nose (not big but not small). I get the dark hair from both my dad and mom. Skin tone from the English side. Eye colour, brow thickness, and jawline is from the Italian side. Cheekbones, shnoz, and eye shape from Russian/Austrian side. :)

WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE,
My sister's been doing my family tree this month. We can actually trace my direct line to 1010 England- we have a town named after us in England apparently. But on another branch of my family we're Warners, which dates back as far if not further. There are a lot of Quakers in the Warner line and a lot of famous Warners like George Washington whose grandmother was a Warner. On my father's side of the family it's a lot more difficult to track because we're Russian on that side of the family. The family originated in France, migrated to Germany and then later to Russia for about 100 years before coming to America. We're Jewish on that line of the family which is why we moved around so much.
I'm German and Slovenian, mostly.

all my grandparents where from different countries , but i think i got lucky getting the best of them (it could be a disaster lol ) i have france ,and a country that doesnt exist anymore in one side, and Italy and Siria in the other side , i guess thats why my eyes are ridiculously big, luckily my nose is small so im glad, my name its completely Italian though, Florencia which is a city in Italy and Crestanello, my last name, personality wise im very italian though, and i like it XD although i NEVER raise my voice (which is a very italian thing to do)
My mother's family is from France, my ancestors's name was Radix de Chevillon. They were templars, who fleed to the Netherlands during the revolution, and now the familyname is just Radix. There's still a castle of them in the town Chevillon. My father's family is from north-Germany, with frisian roots, but that's all I know of it.My mother's family also look very french, all kind of short people with dark hair. Me too :P
I'm Colombian. My Dad is Caucasian and my mother is fully Colombian. My first name is Greek (Larissa) and my last name is my Dad's (Blintz). I have brown hair and hazel eyes err I dunno why haha
THE DEEP SOUTH,
I am German/Swedish. My grandparents were jews that came here during the holocaust. My first name is Moa, which is a very Swedish name (if there are names like that, i dunno, haven't met anyone outside sweden who can pronounce it correctly). My middlename is Rebecca, which is a hebrew name to honour my jewish heritage. My last name is taken, so it has nothing to do with my heritage, lol
jewish and iraqi both sides all the way through. grandfather changed the surname from lowly arabic name to generic jewish one to blend in. nothing that interesting. we all range in colouring and height in the wider family though, we suspect a crusader influence from way back

Both sets of my grandparents are from Mexico. Somewhere in Guadalajara, I think. There is definitely some Spanish colonization ancestry in there, too, which explains why I am so pale.

I'm very, very American. No other part of my heritage matters.I do know that I'm distantly connected to Scotland, Ireland, and England (possibly the rest of UK as well?) on my mom's side. But those ancestors have been in the USA since the early 20th century, so I don't really consider myself Scottish, Irish, etc. However, I would love to visit those places one day.On my father's side, I'm not so sure. I like to think I have Scandinavian ancestry since my last name is common in Sweden and Denmark.

Heinz 57 mix! German, French, Irish, English, Scottish, Nord/Norwegian/scandanavian (Viking), Spaniard, Berber(Atlas Mtns/Morroco), Hispaniola, and German Jew (Russian Jew?)! One of my relatives claims there's even Native American in our bloodline, but I highly doubt it!!! I'm 6 foot 1 and have brown hair (died black) and hazel-green (greenish-hazel/medium brown starburst surrounded by green) eyes!!!
