    "Mutt." And I'd say this is a pretty accurate description since my family has mostly been here since the 1600's, and have had tons of mixing, but if I had to break it down, I would probably say I'm primarily British Isles (i.e., English, Welsh, Scottish, Irish, Scotch-Irish/Ulster, Cornish, Manx & Jersey, collectively), and then mostly Scandinavian (i.e., Swedish & Norwegian). In addition to this, I know I have smaller amounts of Dutch, Belgian, German, Jewish-German & Swiss. I also found one line that was French Huguenot. Also pretty sure I have at least one or two lines, possibly even three, that include Native American ancestry. Those lines all tend to be brick walls, or at least never been able to confirm a definitive paper trail, but all lead to areas where there was a significant presence of Lenape Delaware (Southwest New Jersey) and Cherokee (East Tennessee). And there's also been family rumors for these branches, and we've recently come into contact with more distant relatives who confirmed they had similar family rumors passed down, which has been further corroborated by the fact many of us have gotten small traces of Native American or other non-European DNA results, e.g., Melanesia, South Asia or East Asia showing up on DNA tests. But because you can now apparently get in trouble for saying your part Native American these days if you don't have definitive proof, I guess those branches just have to remain "unknown" for now...

      I can read English, but what does that have to do with anything? "What is *your* ancestry? "  is a textbook chatting-violation and should be reported
