That makes sense, since Israel is much newer than Russia, too.

100% Ashkenazi Jew
My maternal grandmother's family was from Poland. Maternal grandfather's family probably from Russia, but came to North America via the Baltic countries. My paternal grandmother's family came from a then Polish-speaking area of what is now Belarus, and my paternal grandfather's family probably came from Germany, but was in South Africa long enough to be forgotten.

Puerto Rican (basically Spanish because of ancestry) on my dad's side.

Relatively equal amounts of Italian and Polish, and a hint of German from my mom's side.

Well i'd say i'm mostly African because my mother is African American (but there is probably some whilte in her side of the family due to lighter complexions) and my father is A Mestizo mixture with some African blood, from Puerto Rico.
