I'm Italian, Irish, English, and Native American: a true Jersey mutt!

I only look English, though. Too bad--I would have loved to have inherited the black hair from my Italian, Irish (they're black Irish!), and Native American ancestry!

Mine is mostly German with a touch of Scottish, English, and Russian.

My paternal grandmother was of German ancestry ,
My paternal grandfather was Scottish ancestry,
My maternal grandfather was half Russian and half English,
and my maternal grandmother is of German ancestry.

if you want to go into religion, I'm half-Catholic, half-Jewish. While I am no doubt proud of my ancestry, being of German and jewish ancestry has its price...my maternal great-grandmother's siblings and parents were all killed at Auschwitz. Even more creepy, my other maternal great-grandmother, where I get my English ancestry, and her family had tickets to sail on the Titanic's maiden voyage but cancelled at the last second for a later crossing. can you imagine a more lucky break? They would have been travelling third class too. More than 80% of the fatalities on the Titanic were third class passengers.

Wow, I didn't realise so many Americans had English ancestry. I always thought most were of Spanish and French descent. :O
