When we drink, we get drunk.
When we get drunk, we fall asleep.
When we fall asleep, we commit no sin.
When we commit no sin, we go to heaven.
So, let's all get drunk, and go to heaven!

This song made me write a rap verse but I deleted it because I'm a perfectionist with my own music.

Back to the topic now, I'm Irish, Italian, British, and a little Mexican.

I'm originally from Nova Scotia, Canada. Which basically means I'm a hodge-podge of Irish, Scottish, Whales, and French. As are pretty much all Nova Scotianers.

Well I was adopted so there is no telling what I've got in my genetics. But, my adoptive family has a lot of Irish and Native American with a little German and French thrown in. And last family reunion we got surprised with some long lost relatives from Mexico, so I guess a little of that too.

Irish, Italian, Spanish, and Iroquois, my mom was the Irish/Italian mix and my grandfather was Iroquois. My father met and married my mother in Spain but we haven't gotton to tracking his ancestry yet so we stick to spain since that is where he grew up.

I'm pretty sure we all have at least 20 or so ancestors of different origins.

My ancestry is not very great. From my father's side, i know nothing, since he left my mom when i was 3 hours old. But from my mom's side.... 1/4 of her fammily is greek, 1/4 gypsy and 2/4 pure romanian, descendants of some old king of Wallachia, who ruled only 10 days, Serban Voda. Why he ruled 10 days? because in those times, the Wallachian throne was in ottoman posession, and for 200 gold coins, you could be king for a day. apparently, he had money only for ten days.
My fammily name , Grigorescu, also makes everyone think i'm descendant of the biggest romanian painter, Nicolae Grigorescu, but i doubt that. Yes, i'm good at drawing, but i know people who can do better with their eyes closed.

I am, like most white people, a mixed race from multiple cultures. On my dad's side he is 3/4 Portaging.

 

The really interesting story is my mom side of the family. My how many greats grandfather was a French noblemen, a cousin of Marie and Louis XVI, he came to America to help with the revolutionary war and got shot. Left for dead he was found by a Quaker and ended up staying here and marrying the Quaker's daughter.

Some other historical figures I am related to,

Buffalo Bill

Ulysses S Grant

Well, white people in North America. I'm not too sure this really applies to all caucasian countries. White people in Canada and the US came from somewhere else (mainly france, spain, and the british isles) so naturally they're a mix. White people in Europian countries, might just be fully from their own country until at least foreveeeeer back. Though maybe they mix more than I think, I don't know too much about it.

I wonder if this applies to Australia, they're an immigrant nation as well. 

@cool I know I'm related to Red Cloud on my mother's side, but if there are any other famous people I'm related to it was forgotten over the years.

Not many people know that much about there family. The only reason I know what I know is because my mom use to have a book that was about my families history.

My maternal great-grandmother kept one of those. It has some pictures and documents all the marriages, deaths, and children back to the 1800's. It's a really neat thing to have. I have been trying to copy it in typing and also make copies of the photos(The original is starting to fall apart with age and use). It's an amazing thing to have.

My ancestors had many problems with China and France.  Eventually they moved out.  Then, communism.  Then we had a fight with the 1970 superpower nation.  We played good defense, and eventually went to civil war down south.  We won (sadly).

The hippies didn't want any fighting, so that's mainly the reason why the communists won.  

I gave you a shitload of hints, have fun.

I am mongrel, but I do know I have a bit of Native American in me and my grandfather was from Iran.

For a bit of history, my family has been in the US since the Revolution and supposedly, one of my ancestors signed the Declaration of Independence. So I can add a little European in there too.
