I am Scottish, German, and Danish. My FI is half Irish and half Lebanese, although you'd never in a million years guess "Irish" by looking at him!!

I'm about 99% german (luxenbourg technically).. FI is a smattering of northern europe.. about 25% Norwegian, and then a whole mix of other stuff..mostly Scottish/Irish and German.


FI is related through his mom's dad's side, to General Bradford, the man that was the leader of the Pilgrams when they hit the east coast, and General Sherman who burned his path to the sea through Atlanta in the Civil War :)

I think this is a great post - it's nice to see everyone's background and nowadays, interracial relationships, children are SO common...


Both of my parents are Puerto Rican...My son is also 1/4 Irish and 1/4 German...


FI is a mixture (I lovingly call him my mutt) of Eastern European - German, Austrian, Polish and some other stuff...FI's daughter is also 1/4 German and 1/4 Puerto Rican.


We call our house the U.N.!!! LOL!!!

i'm filipino
(born there, emigrated at the age of 6 to Toronto, then moved to CA at the age of 9 or 10, been here in the Golden State since)


fh is african-american
(as he says it: "conceived in champagne-urbana [eewwww - dont wanna think about his 'rents doin the grownup], born in fresno, moved to long beach, ca at 2 years old")


EDIT: although i'm not sure - i probably have some Spanish blood in my veins based on both my grandmother's and great-grandmother's maiden names - and most of the girls on my mom's side are "mestiza", despite me being the dark child ;-)


my maternal grandfather's last name is also a city in Spain

I'm Mexican American, but watered down version cuz I'm fourth generation (my great grandparents were born here).


However, my FH is Mexican Mexican American (as my mom likes to say)...lol. He was actually the first of his siblings in the family born in the US so he's really brought the culture back to my family.


The language is another story...my mom doesn't even know Spanish. I only learned it in high school and still can't understand or speak it...sometimes it can get frustrating because his older family members don't speak English, but I hope our future kids are able to catch on to Spanish..even if it means I won't always understand them :P

Anna, I am in the same boat.  The Spanish that I did learn, I learned by hearing other people talk or when I was attending church during high school (all Spanish).  I am actually going to take Spanish class and am teaching what little I know to my FI and my son.  My stepdaughter's mother is 1/2 Puerto Rican and wants her to learn Spanish which I think is great.

I have a little bit of Irish and a little bit of Native American. The rest, I'm not sure of. Mostly mutt like you, smooreswifey ; ) I've lived in the deep south all my life and love it : )


My FI is Puerto Rican-his parents moved over here a few years before he was born. He did move to the island for a few years in grade school though.
