That's great! Are you enrolled in any Choctaw, Navajo or Cherokee tribe?

A little background about me first. I live in Northern Virginia and my family's been here for years(12th generation). On my mother's side, all 19/20th century immigrants. To be specific: Italian, Austrian, German, Scottish, Irish. My father's side has been here since Jamestown(350-400 years ago depending on which line). To be more specific that side is: English(a lot of it), Irish, Scottish, Welsh, German, French, Swiss, and native American(my aunt is Pocahontas). I'm also related to the Randolph family of Virginia.

5/8 Mexican (Zacatecas, San Luis Potosi, Sonora, Chiapas)
1/8 Swedish (Lindesberg/Orebro County)
1/8 Scottish (Glasgow)
1/8 English (Lancashire, others; I and the heir apparent share a 15th or 16th great grandfather via his mother)

My surname is Spanish.

My father's family ascended from Mexico in the 2nd decade of the 20th century, as did one branch of my mother's. The rest of my mother's family settled in the Northeast upon arriving from Europe, mostly in New England, but no further south than Pennsylvania. The trek west mostly occurred in the last century.

I wonder what is the (True) most common ancestry among "white" Americans. Many claim German, other Irish, other Italians. I mean only a Dna could determine that. To me most white americans just look "American" and dont resemblem much other europeans. And thinking in where they could pass, I bet there are more white americans who could Blend in England, Ireland or even France than in Germany, I notice germans have a quite quite different looks compared to the average White American, but not as much as Russians of course.
