so heres the scoop.
Dh's dad is from the southern most part of Mexico. Dh and his sister are first generation American citizens from his dad's side. His mom is a bit over half Native American. Her father, full blooded Sue and her mother is part Native and part white (of unknown to me european background). So dh is 1/2 Mexican, over 1/4 native american (mostly sue) and the rest is some combo of lighter skinned background. People often think dh is asian or Indian when in fact he's isn't even close! When you put dh is his natural element
people begin to make more accurate guesses
now apparently I'm
more confusing... this could very much have to do with my constant hair
color changes, true. I'm nearly all English. From my mother's side a I'm only 1/32 spanish, 1/16 french, and 1/32 irish and the rest all appears to be english. From my fathers side I have just (as in yesterday) found out that my family was of the first settlers to the US from england. A great times-a-zillion grandfather founded Newark, NJ (and was the great times something grandfather of pres eisenhower's wife)and his wife was actually the first white woman to spend the summer there in NJ. We settled much of conniticut prior to that as well. Interesting. I haven't nailed down my father's mother's side exactly but, it appears to be england as well. Now, while that is only back to the 1500's it's safe to say I'm english. So it's odd for me to have gotten latin and asian all of my life.
So this all makes our kiddos 1/4 mexican, about 1/7 or 1/6 Native American, and the rest mostly English.
