Just a note...

Nearly 90% of African-Americans have European ancestry.

The African-American population of the U.S. averages roughly 20% European ancestry (many have much more, some have less).

My mom was born in Finland and all of her ancestors and family is from Northern Europe.
I think my dad's grandma came to the US from Germany.

Irish on dad's side by way of Boston, German on mom's side by way of Chicago. Both immigrated around the turn of the 20th century.

I'm 1/4 Croatian and 1/4 Czech, on my mother's side.

I'm adopted though, and my other half, on my father's side? ...is a mystery.
