    My family has been in the United States for four generations. But we really didn't migrate from anywhere. My Native American (Navajo, Aztec) roots come from the Americas.

    predominately British, a few random ancestors from Germany and France here and there. First ones came over to Jamestown in 1607. Most came over to Virginia in the 1600's. It appears the traveling genes didn't get passed on....we've been in Virginia ever since.

    17th and 18th century Quaker (England) and Dutch immigrants. Also Scottish, German (Bavaria, Saxony), Swiss, during the 19th century. Probably a little bit of Native American tossed in the mix as well.

    Well, my dad's side of the family has been in America about 55 years. They immigrated from Scotland about 2 years before he was born.
    And my mom's side has been in slightly longer. All four of her grandparents were from different countries. So I am equal parts, Irish, Native American, German and Dutch. And they all immigrated when they were young. Really, my family has only been in America for about 100 years. But I was born here and so were both of my parents.

    My ancestry is located from America ( Native Americans), Spain, and Norway. Um... my dad was born in Mexico and moved here as a boy, his great great grandmother came to Mexico from Spain. My mom's family is different; my grandpa's great great grandparents moved from Norway to America, and then my grandma's family are pure native americans.

    It's a running joke. I gave the same answer when someone gave me a shared question asking me "what is your heritage" or something like that. It was a yes or no question and the picture of "no" said ACCESS DENIED. I didn't want to tell so I clicked no and my comment was ACCESS DENIED.
