Oh, wow, I don't think I ever posted in this thread!! ::)
OK, the downlow..
I live in Miami, Florida (the worst place ever!! :-X)
Mostly, I have Spanish ancestry (supposedly I am related to King Fernandino of Spain ;D), but with a little Cuban, ALOT of French (but, still more Spanish), some English, and some Russian (YAY!).
Oh, ya, and some Italian, and Greek.

What an amazing list, Prince_Lieven!

I'm from Japan. I am not sure why, but I hesitated to tell that I am from Japan somehow...

In the book "Kassandra" written by Christa Wof, she is the girlfriend of Kassandra's brother Troilos and the daughter of a man called Kalchas.
I also looked it up in "The Greek Myths" by Ranke-Graves (who tells the real myths, while Christa Wolf changed many things), it also says that she is the daughter of Kalchas, who knew that Troia would fall and went to the Greeks, his daughter stayed and was in love with the Troian king's son Troilos.

So Christa Wolf didn't change this.

I posted awhile ago, about were I was from, but not my ancestry-it is English, Irish, Scottish, Welsh, Swedish, Norwegien, and German, and a little bit of French. I am from IA/MN ( I live more in both, really,) ;D
