I was born in Cuba, raised in Miami, Florida, and now reside in Southern Ontario, Canada.

My ancestry as far as I know is mostly Spanish with a little bit of Portuguese.

My ancestry is Norwegian, English, Scottish, German, Polish, Swedish, and Canadian. Yes, Canadian counts!

I am from Poland of Polish origine. As I know there were no other nations among my ancestors. Still it is my pleasure to be in such an international company in this forum. All the best to all of you. :)

I'm one of those darned WASPs (white Anglo-Saxon Protestant) with a primarily English/German background. At first I was thrilled to think that Alexandra and I shared the same basic ethnicity . . . and then I read the stats and found that most Anglo-Saxon citizens of the United States have the same German/English mix. Dang, so much for cosmic reincarnation!   :-[  ::)  

I was born in Southern California and have lived here most of my life except for a couple of years in Florida--while my dad, who was in the Marine Corps, was stationed in Pensicola--plus one glorious week in Hawaii, two weeks visiting relatives in upstate New York, and two glorious weeks each in England and in Russia!

I meant to add last night--before my time was up at the library--that on March 17, many of us consider ourselves Irish!  ;)
