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!
--Old Irish toast
Damn I love my people
I love the Irish as well.
God made beer so the Irish could never take over the world.
Whiskey, sir, whiskey. Can't make beer out of potatoes.
Well either way the English brought tea over to Ireland. So just wondering, but who has/are Irish in their ancestors?
I honestly have no idea how that statement was relevant :P I have Irish ancestry
I have a very small percentage of Irish in me. Mostly German, Portuguese and French.
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.
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.
I'm mostly irish, but like most white people there's so many different ancestries running through me I can't remember every last one.
I have a lot of Irish, some Scottish, Scandinavian, German. I probably have a lot more than I have named, but those are the ones I know for sure.
English, Irish, Scottish and Polish.
50-50 French and English, pretty boring if i may say so.
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.
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,
Ulysses S Grant
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.
You could be at least a little less vauge. Say something like East, North, South, or west African. Besides didn't we all come from africa?
Hmmm... I'm chinese so most probably china?
It's been debated, but in the Middle Eastern-African region.
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.
Quick tip #1: Americans don't know shit about foreign affairs. I could google it, but quick tip#2 is that Americans are lazy
Polish on my father's side, mostly English on my mother's side. Ukrainians tell me I have a Slav's face.
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.
Wait, is your last name Stone too? Cool coincidence.
Well no, my great great Grandfather was named Stone.
