I just got my 23andMe results back and I'm 2.7% Neanderthal!
Polish, Croatian and Austrian.
Russian/Ukrainian + German Russian (Belarus) by way of North Dakota
Irish/Austrian/American from way back
What are the ethicities of Brad Pitt and Kellan Lutz?
r6, is your cock Rican?
100% Appalachian Scots-Irish.
Brad Pitt is simian.
Irish English Spanish Dutch Portuguese. My ancestors got around. I suspect they may have left a trail of unpaid bills behind them too.
Italian and Scottish.
I have a huge dick and a huge drinking capacity.
Scotch/Irish and to a lesser extent, Cherokee
R21: My two favorite food groups. You must be yummy.
Eastern European Jewish and English/Scotch/Irish.
Mom born in Holland, father born in France
English/Irish/Scot/Welsh/Danish/French/Norwegian and Swedish. My family liked to migrate
One hundred percent Italian. A thoroughbred, not a mxed breed.
Dutch, English and Polish.
Italian and Greek.
...well, if you're southern Italian, r26, you're part eggplant.
English and a little German. Family in America forever. Really boring. I came to envy those who have a more exotic mix to them.
Mostly Scots / English with a smattering of German. Like r31, my family ( Dad's side) has been in America forever. Since 1636.
My maternal grandparents were from Scotland and emigrated to the US in the 1920's as teenagers.
French/Polish/Russian/Turkish/Israeli. I'm exotic-looking in a generic sort of way.
Hmm... some interesting heritage but mostly a very WASPy DL, myself included.
English, Scots-Irish, Welsh - my father's family came over on the Mayflower. Mother's family came over much more recently.
English/Irish/French and Cherokee. Pale faced flat footed square toothed mutt.
More Scot than anything else. Then English, Irish, German and French. The usual Western European mutt.
Louisiana Creole, which is a lot things.
R2, you reminded me of that thread. Now, I have to find it to see if anybody posted their results.
A lot of Irish. It's nice to see that France well-represented among Dlers.
English, German, Croatian
Scot-Irish on my paternal grandfather's side. German and ? on paternal grandmother's side.
Irish and more Irish on maternal grandfather's side.
English and ? on maternal's grandmother's side.
And a either 1/8th or 1/16 Native American (Seneca)
Mother's side: German-Jewish (living in Budapest until 1914) and German (Bavaria); Father's side: English and Dutch. I usually just tell people (if they ask) that my family was German and English. My grandparents came to the USA in the early twentieth century as children.
This explains why Americans are generally better looking than Europeans.
German and Dutch, with a smattering of Swiss.
Greek-Canadian, with a rugged, virile bulge in my pants.
Irish, English, Welsh, Dutch, German and Native American, probably Onondaga.
Why is it that 90% of white people who claim to be part Native American say they are Cherokee?
Wow, Datalounge is very WASPy.
French and Portuguese. Possibly 1/4 or 1/8 Algerian, but I may never know.
Choctaw Indian & Irish on moms side.
Cheyenne Indian & French/German on Dads.
Both of my parents are dark skinned with pitch black hair, yet me and my sister are pale with reddish hair.
Korean (poor me)
American Indian, French and English
BTW and to all those who speak German well- any movies to recommend? I'm looking to perfect mein Deutsch, and if I could find 2-3 movies I really enjoy that could push it forward.
Everyone keeps mentioning how WASPy DL is. I'm not seeing it, at least not full-blooded WASPs. Instead I see a lot of British mixed with other groups and combos like Irish/German, neither of which are WASP.
The only ethnicities that are truly WASP are those that originate from the island of Great Britain: English, Scottish and Welsh. Irish is definitely not WASP, unless you're "Scots Irish" which just means you're ultimately Scottish. German and other Northern European ethnicities are not WASP either. WASP is just another way of saying your ancestors were British by birth.
R30 If he's Southern Italian he's probably more Norman and Lombard(Germanic tribes that ruled in Southern Italy) than any black . There is relatively no black blood in the South BUT there was a big Arab Muslim presence in Sicily though.
My family is Kiwi and Australian with a German, English,Italian,Greek and French ethnic background.
French, Dutch, English, Welsh, Scottish, Irish.
r77 is correct. The most foreign blood Italians have is Norman Viking, and the various Germanic tribes who raped and pillaged their way through the Italian peninsula for centuries. The Moors from north Africa never got much further than Sicily, and Sicilians also have a lot of Viking in them. If by African you mean black Africans, they never had any presence in Italy.
Mexican and German/scottish.born and raised in TX
Tell me about it, R79.
Scottish/German + French-Cajun
Total mutt. English/Irish/Scot, Dutch, German, Swedish, American Indian (Cherokee and Osage) and maybe some Czech.
Third generation mexican-american on my mom's side and first generation mexican-american on my dad's side.
I don't know about my dad's side, but I do know on my mom's side I have native american (I forget which tribe) and full-blooded spanish in me. Great-great grandparents I believe.
The Cherokee ancestry claims may have started with beloved humorist/vaudevillian/actor/cowboy/newspaper columnist, Will Rogers. In his youth he was labeled and scorned as "Indian". He obviously rose above it all.
So when Cher started out, Native Americans were extremely popular. What could be more beneficial for her career than to claim Cherokee ancestry.
There was a legitimate Cherokee singer, Keely Smith. She was, and is highly regarded as a stylist.
There were some actors who were multi-tribal in their bloodlines. Dennis Weaver and Roy Rogers, for just two. James Garner never traded on his Cherokee ancestry. His brother is the one who looks like an Indian.
If anyone bothers to look up the Five Native American ballerinas from Oklahoma; singers, Kay Starr, Lee Wiley, Mildred Bailey and Buffy St. Marie, they will find more accomplished performers of Indian heritage.
And then, there are the sports, and even politics.
We are all brothers under the skin. (No, leave lust out of this!)
Mayflower white with a Royal portion of Sizemeat.
Sorry r75 but the Scots and Welsh are not WASPs... The AS bit means Anglo-Saxon, and they occupied England, except for Cornwall and Cumbria... So not even all English people can make WASPs.
American/Homosexual but not gay
Did Cher claim AI ancestry? She's some kind of East Asian or Arab isn't she?
R79 I went to school with some Sicilians whose hair was the same texture as African-Americans. They must have some African blood for their hair to be afro-like.
Half Jewish, half Catholic, way back generations ago from Hungry on my dad's side. On both sides my family has been born here since my parents great grandparents so on my mom was not even sure, she thought maybe Russia.
[quote]she thought maybe Russia.
Does she have a bear clock made exclusively for the Romonov's?
R26, in Italy they would think you're American.
No, but she did like Vodka.
English/French/Dutch. Got all the bad parts of each, except for height from the Dutch.
Catholic is not an ethnicity, R90.
I thought Cher was at least part Armenian. Her last name is Sarkisian.
Anglo-Irish and Spaniard
Thought I might have some interesting variations, but the DNA test came back "Whitey McWhite."
English, Swedish, German, Irish, Lithuanian, Polish, Dutch, Norwegian, from last country of European birth before USA. If you go back further in Europe there are more countries represented
R70, you are one of the few real Americans in this country.
If you do not have native American blood you are not a true American. I wish more people would get that.
No wonder there are so many racist posts on DL.
How totally PC, R100 - ugh!
My Jewish great-great grandfather came from Germany almost 200 years ago; are German Jews "Germans" rather than "Jewish"? Most I know are downright WASPy.
I've got a fair amount of New Netherlands Dutch ancestry as well, yet "Dutch American" conjures up those kooks in Michigan. Sigh.
Your ethnicity is determined by the country you are born. A genetic Mongolian born in the US is as American as anyone born of "native american"geneology (no such thing actually, native americans are mongols themselves)
yet a genetic Mongolian born in the US are more likely to be asked the question "where are you from".
Very true, R105. The perpetual foreigner.
Total Heinz 57. Swedish, German, Danish, English, Greek, Spanish.
Mexican (mestizo with Yaqui Indian forebears)
Thanks for the education, r77 & r79, that's interesting!
R100, "American" is a thing invened by European settlers. I'm sure the indigenous population had and still have their own language and names for themselves and didn't need others to turn them into this alien category called "Americans".
R104 doesn't understand the difference between ethnicity and nationality.
Southern Italians are fucking Greeks. Germanic Lombards settled in northern Italy and made it the productive part of the country.
R99, your DNA test could tell you your ancestors were from all those countries?
Scottish, Irish, German, Swedish - pale as a full moon.
"Black African" is not a separate ethnicity, even though people try very hard to make it so.
romanian and polish
Here's what my 23andMe "speculative" results show:
0.1% North African
Of the European category:
12.9% Nonspecific Southern European
2.7% French and German
0.7% British and Irish
4.3% Nonspecific Northern European
100% German Lutheran peasant, Wisconsin farmers since the 1860's.
The latest generation, though, includes Polish, English, Italian, Spanish, Japanese, Laotian, African, and Native American, among others in its DNA sequences.
According to Judaism101, "Jewish" is not an ethnicity, so you'll have to break down what you actually are, self-loathing goyim.
Do they only give "speculative" results, r121?
Are there a variety of ethnicity tests offered by them? If there are, I'm wondering which one I should choose.
BTW, is it mother and father's side?
Also, what did you think you were? Did it match the results?
German and Irish but more than a few people have asked me if I'm Italian...go figure.
[quote]"Black African" is not a separate ethnicity, even though people try very hard to make it so.
Black (Nubian) African and Arabic African are separate ethnicities.
R125 They give "conservative", "standard" and "speculative." The more conservative ones tend to have a lot more "nonspecific European"-type results. There's no way of knowing for sure based on DNA, since they're basing it on research of migration patterns and other people who share your mitochondrial groups. And they do give both maternal and paternal lines.
My maternal haplogroup is one that supposedly only exists in Scandinavia and northern Europe, but almost all of my ancestry is southern European, so that one kind of baffles me. And not one of the second, third, and more distant cousins they've located shares that haplogroup.
Irish going all the way back to Red Hugh.
High five, Ciaran.
Father from Italy
Mom is mexican/pima indian.
I had my dog's DNA tested. She looks like a man-eating Rottie (not unlike her Daddy) but the test came back 13% Chihuahua! Makes me hesitate to have my own DNA checked.
I don't think I could handle learning I may have a little Jew in me.
Alps and British Isles, although genetic testing says northern Europe 100%
Mom's side: Irish, English, French, and Native American.
Dad's side: Irish, French, German, Dutch, Native American, Scottish, Welsh, and English.
D'oh...Add Swiss to my dad's side. His people loved to travel and fuck, apparently
[quote]Black (Nubian) African and Arabic African are separate ethnicities.
Not any more separate than Northern and Southern European, but no one ever bothers with such a distinction.
The distinction is very much in use. Ethnically, Saharan Africa in the north is mostly of the Arab race and would be Caucasian and Sub-Saharan Africa would be Negroid. Southern and Northern Europeans are both Caucasian.
The assignment is arbitrary and contradictory, R138.
That is my point.
German and Scandinavian, mostly.
Yes, I'm tall and blond.
However, we have every color of hair and eyes in this family.
some family members look Swedish...and some have the Spanish flavor...so I guess lots of invasion in that little country.
English/Scottish on my father's side and English/Irish/Creek Indian on my mother's side.
Some of my Germans had moved from Switzerland in the 1400's.
Caucasian, Hispanic, Native American
My ethnicity? American. I am NONE of the cultures that my ancestors were. I most certainly cannot consider myself to be Italian, English, Irish, Greek, French or Welsh or Indian. Culturally, I am NONE of those. They all came here and created something else: AMERICA. That is now our ethnicity, like it or not.
None. Most modern Americans are mutts marrying mutts, and having even bigger mutts.
French Basque/French Canadian
R146 is boring.
Sorry R146, but the past is more a part of you than you think.
r146 my American Indian ancestry (I am a member of a federally recognized Indian Tribe)precedes the creation of the US of A.
So, no, to use your words: "like it or not" I'm a member of my Tribe before I'm an American.
My mother's parents came over from County Cork, Ireland while in their teens and settled in Boston.
A few years ago I got heavily into genealogy and found out that my great-grandfather X 10 on my father's side came over from England as part of the Great Puritan Migration in the 1630's. What followed were generations of farmers in the Worcester, MA, area. Discovered that Henry David Thoreau is a 4th cousin, 3 times removed. Also distantly related to President James Garfield, Clara Barton, and two Minute Men from the Revolutionary War. And that my great-great grandmother was eight months pregnant when she got married. Two of my siblings carried on that great tradition, but not quite THAT far along.
Wow, so many goyim.
R65, I have only one question: are you a man or a woman?
Gay, but Black unfortunately.
No r150, not boring at all. Just answering the question. r152, speak for yourself. YOU may be a part of a recognized tribe. If so, good for you. What I said doesn't apply to you in that case. But, it does apply to most of us, whether we acknowledge that or not. And sorry to disappoint you r151, but all those differing cultures I am came together and created something new and different in a new place with a new culture. Perhaps if most of us were one nationality or mostly of one your argument would have some validity. But that is most certainly not the case with most of us today. Just read the differing mixtures many people in the USA are today.
R137, I suspect that in the continent of Africa that's actually a very important distinction. I could be wrong, however. Perhaps you are more informed on what Africans think.
I live in flyover land but some of my Dutch ancestors were among the founders of Nieuw Amsterdam. I feel saddened and shocked at the villains who came later and voted for Giuliani and Bloomberg and made trash like Trump a celebrity. What you English have done to it!
Because Italians have 10% (9.2%) Sub-Saharan Ancestry, R89. And this ancestry traces back to about 2000 years ago. Most people get so caught up in race and appear not to realize or comprehend that it's not real, it's inconsistent, and arbitrary. Skin color only lightened in two populations, Europeans and East Asians ( separately and took divergent paths). And it said to have happened only 6,000 to 12,000 years ago. There are things about our ancient past, particularly concerning migrations that would blow the average person's mind, especially the bigoted and racist among us.
The people in this picture are Southeast Asian aboriginals.
Forgot the picture! Sorry about that.
These people are indigenous to Southeast Asia. Although, humans are only really indigenous to East Africa but you get what I mean.
Mutt: Scots-Irish, English, Welsh, German, Dutch, and a little Italian and Spanish.
Mostly English, with Irish, Scottish, and a small bit of Welsh. Basically, I have the British Isles covered. When I go to Europe, the Contientals always ask if I'm English.
Your typical melting pot.
My earliest American-arriving ancestors arrived at Plymouth in 1628. The latest (the Italian/Spanish) came to NYC pre-Ellis Island (1881).
Mostly German with some Irish and French Canadian.
Wow, I thought DL was much more diverse. It's not just white, but mostly Anglo/German white.
R168, has it occurred to you that the people who've posted on this thread are not representative of the entirety of DL?
English,Irish,Scottish,German,Swedish,French,Jewish,and half japanese
R159 No, Italians have much less than 10% Sub-Saharan admixture. Most of the admixture is in southern Italy and it's less than 5%.
I'm skeptical of all the people on here claiming more than four ethnicities. Not that it can't happen or that it isn't common enough.
The Italian side is Genovese and Calabrese. There is a touch of north-African ("Arabic" was how my mother described it. The family name was 'Ali') in the Calabrese line but don't know exact geographic location.
I read somewhere that epicanthal folds help prevent the eyes freezing in winter and that stubby arms and big heart and lungs of Asians are evolutionary advantages for cold and high altitudes, the theory being that Asians evolved these features in some cold or mountainous region like the Altai.
Every single one of my ancestors was a Cherokee princess.
