I'm all Polish, I was born there, and the family goes back centuries I guess. As far as I know, there's nothing else mixed in, so I'm a purebred lol.
The family did have branches that split off though, before and after WW1. So now, I also have family in France, Brazil/Argentina, and somewhere in Africa too, but I forget where. Some former French colony.

Hungarian and Moldovian on mom's side. Everything else on the continent on dad's side. So definitely a euro-mutt.

I am a purebred I was born and partly raised in the Soviet Union and "grew up" in New York. Do I qualify to answer this question or am I not American enough?

I'm around

* 35% Scottish
* 30% English
* 30% Welsh
* Traces of German, Netherlands, French, and one Cherokee line

I did a lot of genealogy work last October. Most of my ancestors came from 1550 to 1690. The latest arriver I found was my Gosser line, which came from Germany in 1730. My earliest line in American (Roy) were church laymen in colonial Virginia in the late 1500s.
