Mother's side: 99.9% Flemish. I see one Italian name in that huge tree and that's it. They even stayed in the same place. Father's side, my last name is North-French so not very exciting, my ancestors didn't travel very long. But for the rest there isn't a lot of data on father's side, so I don't know. I tried to look it up once with my grandmother but after two bastards we gave up - it's impossible that way.

I don't really know if there are unbiased terms in order to define one's ethnicity.. btw my entire family has been living in Emilia for centuries, so - apart from some distant relatives from the northernmost part of Italy and from Innsbruck - I'm 100% Emilian.. since in Italy pretty much every region or macro-region has its own peculiar somatic traits..

The fact that virtually every Emilian has green/blue eyes and a lighter skin than other Northern Italians from Veneto or Lombardy is one of the many results of the massive presence of the celts so-called cisalpine gauls and/or boii and - mainly - of more than one millennium of German and Austrian reign (and consequent migrations - the Este family who ruled my province for 600 years originates from Mainz). Unfortunately now we have mafia, incompetent politicians and rampant lawlessness, this is why I miss Austria.., but we have to be satisfied of our own identity as Emilians I think.. alas!

(Yeah Bolelli is Emilian but don't take him as an example..... )

Not "white"

Won't specify as the Fedtards will use racist terms as personal attacks and I don't want to give them any ammo

I'm Iranian clearly. I wanted to say I'm not sure why the word Caucasian is still preferably and continually used over White. The word should really be used for people from the Caucasus.

I'm glad to find a true chilean who is not afraid of his ethnics background. The Mapuches and the Rapanui are two fascinating tribes, especially the Rapanui. I hope to visit Pascua Island some day and learn more about the moáis:



It's sad that not everyone in Chile seems to be as proud as you are about your amerindian roots. I know that some people in Chile tend to change their amerindian surnames to make them sound more "european". I also watched a TV report some years ago about Chile's issues on accepting it's racial identity.
