On my mom's side, Ukrainian, and on my pop's side, Irish.  I almost always win the "who's the palest" contests whenever anyone complains about their being "pale".  

My relatives all live in other countries, except for an aunt really close and an uncle in NY.  My mom's side lives in Brazil and my dad's in the Ireland/England region.  The good thing about this is that there's an excuse to go to Great Britain and check out the haunts their!

German, Irish, French  Swedish, Dutch, Cree, Apache and Hungarian. As I said it is one hell of a mixture. German, French is the most dominant.

I live in India, and I am a South Indian. We do have caste system here and explaining it all would be kinda boring for people who may not understand ;)

I've got Irish and Scottish from my dads side and English and Irish from my mums. As far as i know though our family originated from Ireland which would explain my obsession with celtic art.

I'm sorta in the same boat as Cajun..a little bit of everything.

English, Scottish, Irish, German, Creek Indian, and I'm sure there a few that I have left out.  I'm not sure what is the dominant factor, but I know that I keep a decent tan year-round.

I understand the caste system MoonChild. I also understand there are several dialects and languages spoken in India. Wow! A linguists dream.

Anyway...
Mom's side: Swedish/French Canadian
Dad's side: Italian/Irish
Me: 100 percent American

But I claim rights to make fun of those four countries!!!!
