Where did your ancestors come from?

Recommended Posts

For a few generations Canadian but before that mainly Irish, some British, some Spanish, and a mix of French, German, and other European places.

 

I'm the Heinz 57 of European ancestry.

North American

 

Because we've been here for ten generations.

 

At that point, it fails to matter which European country you come from (if you're Caucasian like me), or African, or Asian, or anything in between.

It seems that my ancestors settled here in Singapore from Hainan, China, but it's quite recent, since I'm only the fourth generation of the family that's settled in Singapore. My father says my roots can be traced extremely far back to somewhere in BC, when my ancestor, the famous Chinese scholar Zeng Zi, still lived.

 

 

And yes, I am Chinese.

lol By we, I meant my family.

 

I wasn't talking about anyone else specifically.

 

For us though, it hardly matters. We've lost our European roots to the four winds.

Too true.

 

I speak simplified. You speak traditional, which I doubt I will ever even get the gist of. Too hard. ><"'

Well I grew up learning traditional so I can't really say it's hard x3 but my Chinese friends say it's really confusing to them.

They're right. ._.

 

I tried reading traditional the other day. All I registered was " 餐 " because that didn't change out of traditional.

Well... my grandad is from London so I have a lot of family there... but I think our family goes a fair bit back and I believe we are originally from France, but I could be mistaken.

I'm English, Irish, Italian, German, Norwegian, and Danish.

 

The only ones we can find records on are the Italian and German ancestors and even with them, we can't find jack before the boat in the 1890s and 1920s...
