“Guess we all better get ready to be shipped back to Europe.”
I just found out tonight that my maternal great grandparents were full Dutch. So now my heritage is Scotch-Irish/Swedish/Dutch.
Nope- just a good blend of a lot of different backgrounds.
In genetics, they call it “hybrid vigor.” Stronger and better than purebred, and certainly less boring.
Not at all, you’re blended Scotch!
Almost all of us white folk here in US are...er I wouldn’t say “Eurotrash”..but European mutts yes. I’m still trying to figure out “exactly” what I am but I’m finding it’s too wide a mixture for my liking lol! There’s Irish and English/Welsh and German/Dutch for sure and smidgen of Swedish, but there was a Jewish last name from an ancestor that came from the area which is now Transylvania, Romania but used to be Austo-Hungary whose descendant traveled to England and married an English woman and their sons went to Jewish schools but the old pictures of them I have they don’t LOOK Jewish (the men) some of the brothers look Italian and others look somewhat German or something. However on my my mother’s side...her father told her his folk came from Germany only their last name is Scottish...Why am I telling a complete stranger this I dont’ know lol!
Nah, your Celt from the British Isles precludes that, not that the Scotch-Irish (and thank you by the way for spelling it correctly, “Scots-Irish” just grates on me) are looked upon in any better light outside the south and midwest, lol.
