Re: What ethnicity are you?

Myself, parents and all grandparents were born in Australia.
Not sure about the great grandparents on dads side, but on mums we have an Aussie/Scottish combo. If we want to go right into it, before them they were mostly all Irish. (I'm not aboriginal, and obviously, Australia is only a couple of hundred years old in terms of the white-Euro-takeover!).

No I am not related to the convicts, not all Europeans who came here fall into that category. Also, there is one chinese man... mr G-G-grandfather I think. Pretty random, really.

I speak both English and Spanish. My parents barely speak english now so I grew up speaking Spanish and it is the main language my family speaks. And although I am part portugese, that side of my family has long since stopped speaking the language.

I want to have my evil way with Tommy Robredo

Re: What ethnicity are you?

Half Dutch (on my dad's side), Scottish, French and German on my mom's. Hubby is half Finnish and the rest Ojibway(an Am. Indian tribe), French Canadien and Norwiegan so our kids are really a mix But of course that is typical of the US.

Re: What ethnicity are you?

Wow, such a variety of ethnic mixes per person! Future ethnographers will have to create a new named ethnic category.


I'm a 3rd.-generation American, with a very common ethnic combo in my country: half Swedish, half German.
