Though most people would know me to be Spanish/Italian, I must pay homage to my Norwegian and British ancestors as well

Both my parents are Hungarian. (Magyar)

Sicily has a long history of it's own nation, not being a part of Italy until 1860. Very different dialect and customs, etc. Many Italians look at Scillians as Scillians not real Italians. My husband is Italian,( mom Roman, dad Scillian. They always let me know there was a difference.

My uncle traced my father's side of our family lineage to Normandy and William de Warenne...he was one of the Norman nobles who fought with William the Conqueror at the Battle of Hastings in 1066, and afterward was awarded an earlship in Surrey, England. He became one of the wealthiest landowners in England, worth a current-day 74 billion pounds.

So I'm a descendent of French nobility - probably the reason I'm so noble. I don't understand where all of that money went...

My father is from Hungary but of the 'Szekler' minority.

Apparently my Y Chromosome (R1b) is rare amongst Hungarians---------it is usually a trait of English/Scots/Iris/Welsh/Spanish, etc. men.

My bio mother is a generic American White woman of (mostly) English lineage but looked like she came straight from Dublin with her flaming red hair and thin freckled skin. We suspect her bio father was Scots-Irish background.

I am Nordic White in appearance.
