My grandparents immigrated from Brasil. I think their families way in the past immigrated to Brasil from Turkey and Syria.

On my dad's side, his dad's family came from Lithuania and his mom's side came from Holland.

I am over 20% of three things

Irish, Dutch and English in order of most to least. Both sides of my family come from New York and Massachusetts, and these 3 are highly common amongst people from those two areas.

However, I have traced at least one distant ancestor to

France, Morocco, Norway, Sweden, Germany, generally, I am less then 2% of each of these

There is some chance I may have a Mohawk ancestor from my Dutch and French ancestors interactions in early New York, but I dont really have clarity on that.

I have a lot of mine mapped out, but not all of it.

Father's side is easy, it's 100% Italian.

My mom's side is a bit harder, I do know that I have some Ukranian and Irish. The rest is a mix of typical White American but we're not sure what, I found some German and Jewish sounding names in my ancestry research. Still working on a lot of that.

1/2 Korean
1/4 Yugoslavian (Slovenian to be exact)
1/3 French
1/3 German
1/3 Native American

And rumored to contain some African American as well. My grandmother's family was composed of wealthy white landowners who owned slaves. My grandmother always said we may have African blood due to our thick hair and facial structure.

But for some reason, everyone always tells me I look Puerto Rican and Italian!

I look like a mix of it all, I have the taller build of the Ukrainian, but the dark hair and eyes from the Italian side. However, I've been told I "look" German.

1/2 Swedish, 1/4 English and 1/4 Norwegian. The Norwegian was a complete surprise, since I always thought the Smith side was all English. Who knew there are Norwegian Smiths?
