I think everyone with Polish blood is mixed with either Russian, German, or both so the people marked the Euro Mutt.

I've traced back ALL of my family and my husbands ancestors on both maternal and paternal sides. Every single line of our families were here BEFORE The American Revolution. Most came over by the late 1600's and a few in the early 1700's. After that all of our ancestors were HERE in the New World. Pretty ironic that in the 1990's two people born in different states could meet, get married and we were so close throughout history. It really is pretty easy to research and fun. One of my ancestors was on the Mayflower.

Now, where did they come from to The New World: Ireland, Scotland, Germany, France (mostly from other countries THRU France) and England. If my lineage doesn't qualify me to just say, "AMERICAN" then I don't know what does

Yes, it is. I believe the Urals are the demarcator between Europe and Asia.

For me looking WAY back, they came across from Scotland, Ireland, The Netherlands, France, & a few others over there as well. The ones that influence me though are right here in the US. Doesn't matter where long gone generations were born.
