Who the Hell Are YOU?

I spent most of my day with my friend Rocky, who I love dearly, as a friend. We went about 100 miles away from "home" today to get something done to a rifle of his we so had plenty of talk time. We talk about everything, religion, politics, sex, whatever.

Today one of our conversations was about ancestry. He's a nice German boy, both sides of his family, although his last name sounds Swedish to me. But what do I know.... not much. He looks Slavic, blonde hair, light eyes.

I did some digging into my past a few years ago and discovered to my surprise that I'm of Scot descent, on my mom's side, hence the Mac.

My origins here in the states can be traced back to the Mayflower on my dad's side of the family.

Both sides have Cherokee in the form of GreatX4 grandmother's. My mom has this picture of them (from her side), he was from Ireland and had fire red hair, although the pic is of course B&W.

I'm going to assume that I get my dark hair and my cheekbones from them. Eyebrows too...NO Intensity, I'm not shaving them off!

OK so here's the question.... I'm from the great American Melting Pot (Schoolhouse Rock), I'm mutt, Heinz57..... What are YOU?

Well, I don't know a whole lot about my biological father's side of the family except ethnicity. My grandfather is 1/2 Pima Indian. That makes me one-eighth Native American, I guess. The rest, to the best of my knowledge, was English but don't know from how far back. Guess I should check that out sometime. Mom's side was a conglomeration, predominantly French and Irish and some German from her grandfather's side. I'm American since at least my great-great-grandparents' generation but not sure how far before that. Guess I should check out the archives some time.

So, I'm a mutt, too. But I think we're both A1, not Heinz57

Hey Mac Like Dig - I'm American with 1/8 Native American. The other 7/8 are debatable - most likely Welsh & possibly some French. No one's positive and it's too late to do anything about it now.

absolutelynormal replies on 7/9/2006 7:32 am:
Now let me get this *ahem* straight... You have one penis that is native and 7 others that are debatable but most likely welsh and maybe french? Just how many dicks you have Intensity?

100% Irish on my mom's side and 50% Swedish, 50% English on my dad's. Two of the world's greatest perspirers and I live in Arizona. How attractive.

Beats the alternative of not perspiring in the AZ heat

I am an American. My ancestors came from various places in Europe over the last few centuries and became Americans...not German-Americans, Franco-Americans, Spanish-Americans, Anglo-Americans, but just plain old American Americans.

on my dad's side, 3/4 irish, 1/4 english. On my mom's side, 1/2 irish, 1/2 french. I guess that adds up to 5/8 irish, 1/4 french & 1/8 english. Mutt works!

absolutelynormal replies on 7/11/2006 9:43 am:
Yeah, mutt works really well for you

Good, solid 50% German. Someone on my dad's side of the family did a big genealogy, and traced the ancestry back some 10 generations to the Fatherland, but I'm at least 4th, and maybe 5th generation american.

On my mom's side, I'm scottish, swedish, and god only knows what else.

Half French. Half Irish. Half Cajun French (Yes, there is a difference). Half Native American. Maybe half English, I'm not sure, but I do hold my pinkie out when I drink tea. Half drunk.

All kidding aside, I believe it's this Heinz 57 sauce that makes us 100% USA Americans. Come on people now let's get together and stir this melting pot. The possibilities are endless and the cooking fun!


absolutelynormal replies on 7/11/2006 9:48 am:
I hold my pinkie out too, old habits die hard, I don't even know who taught me to do that, my mom I guess. I look over at my buddy Rocky who is a BIG man, he's drinking something out of a can and his pinky is stuck out, cause he's been hangin round me too much I guess. I laughed so hard, I just busted out and he had NO idea why I was laughing, He was mortified that he was doing it!

Since I'm from Australia, I could be a little bit of almost anything I suppose But I have been able to trace my mothers family wayyyyyyy back to Germany - don't know anything about my paternal side Hubby, on the other hand can trace his Grandfather's family back to a little village on the edge of the Sherwood Forrest (and it still exists today!) and one of his Grandmother's great uncles was played by Kevin Costner in the movie Dances with Wolves.

absolutelynormal replies on 7/11/2006 9:52 am:
It'ss cool that you know so much about your ancestors. Dances WIth Wolves is one of my favorite movies. So one of your distant relatives was John J Dunbar?

well I'm US to the core -the crazy competitive perfectionists we can be with one of the highest rate of pyschological problems in the world & combined with being one of the most heavily armed nations (including civilian pop) ...yeah baby, we're nuts and we've got guns

Ancestry mostly Germanic ...father's side (& family name) is Prussian, they came over about the time Germany was becoming unified ... so that makes me half German, my mothers side brings German from her father's line and Dutch & Irish from her mother's ...so 75% Germanic ancestry and 12.5% each of Irish and Dutch ..at least that's what I think it is ...it might explain a few things ... sterotypes exist for a reason sometimes they might just have some truth to them

lol confirmation number '911' ..help, help

I'm a proud American, but I do come from German, French, Irish, and Chippewa indian. Now that I think about it that does alot to explain my drinking LOL

absolutelynormal replies on 7/11/2006 9:58 am:
Thanks Cru, now I'm gonna have Gordon Lightfoot stuck in my head!

by Gordon Lightfoot
album: Summertime Dream (1976)
The legend lives on from the Chippewa on down
Of the big lake they called 'Gitche Gumee'
The lake, it is said, never gives up her dead
When the skies of November turn gloomy
With a load of iron ore twenty-six thousand tons more
Than the Edmund Fitzgerald weighed empty.
That good ship and crew was a bone to be chewed
When the gales of November came early.

And so forth....

50% German-50% Apache Indian. Is that a good mix?
And yes, I have a very unusual last name.

absolutelynormal replies on 7/11/2006 10:11 am:
What a great combination, another person who I've never seen this combo. Thanks for visiting Pickme, I don't think I;ve seen you here before. You're welcome anytime you wish to visit Mac

well I am 100% Scottish for as far back as I know, quite unusual here in the West coast of Scotland, with many of us having Irish descendants in our recent past. I'm not very exotic at all, but very proud and patriotic anyway

Hah! Those fractions are just wrong to turn into penises - that's too funny. I do need several though for that story I'm developing.

absolutelynormal replies on 7/11/2006 10:15 am:
Yeah you do! so far the story is wonderful! You write so well and I am so ENVIOUS!
