Nothing much to say:
Born in Atlanta, GA (Atlanta Braves all the way bishes). Lived there for 4 years, before being pulled everywhere on the east coast due to my dad's job. We finally settled in Tennessee, where we been the last 4 years.
I am 94% White, and 5% Native American (Dad's side), and 1% Attitude (Jk :p)(Forget what I am on my mom's side. Something European). But don't expect me to being doing a rain dance anytime soon. :p

well the grandparends on my fathers side are saxons and as far as i know their parents too. my grandparents from my mothers side lived where today is poland. but as they were born and living there it was still germany (even before the world wars, so it was no temporary part actually) and they were expelled during the second world war and that region was given back to poland. their parents and grandparents all were peasants.
but my grandparents from my mothers side were then the first generation of that line of peasants becoming university graduates. and my mother as well. my sacon line, were as far as i know a row of soldiers and policemen. my father were in the navy, but he decided to come back to germany and leave the sea for my mother
. and he made a universe graduate too. my moms sister studied too. and the brother of my father as well. and guess what: everyone who studied in my family, even the husband of my mothers sister, studied here in rostock, where i study as well.
well yes, i am 100% german.

1. 50 percent norwegian (my dad is 100 percent)
2. over 20 percent german ( haven't figured out exact percentage)
The rest is a bunch of stuff (Dutch, English, Scot, Belgian, French). All these come from my connections to the early settlement in New Amsterdam (today New York) and Albany, NY. In the early 1600s many Dutch came to the USA to settle there.
I know I'm descended from french Huguenots (protestants). They were being murdered (Search "St. Bartholomew's Day massacre", it will give you some idea of what was going on back then.) by the catholics and my ancestors fled to Holland, then eventually came over to America with the Dutch. Some of my french ancestors were from the de Bourbon de Conde family which was royalty.
The scottish I know I'm descended from the Boyd and Logan clans.
The Belgian I'm descended from the De Vos family.
Some famous people I know I'm related to would be Teddy Roosevelt, Eleanor Roosevelt and the Fonda family.
I'm descended from many military men as well. For example, one was an officer for the English during the Revolutionary war and another was for the American side. So 2 of my ancestors fought on differing sides of that war. Also, I'm descended from 2 people that fought for the North in the Civil war. In the World Wars: 1 in for the USA in WWI and 1 in WWII. I'm also descended from some people that serverd in the german military. Xaso was nice enough to help me with some stuff. Thanks Xaso!
