  • You can always do one of those genetic tests that tell you where your blood line came from. My ex mother in law did it & found out all the different backgrounds she came from. I think she paid $100 & they sent a kit to her house where she had to so a mouth swab & she sent back her DNA, one week later she got her results. It was very neat & interesting. I know most of where my family came from though, so i probly won't do one.

  • Oh my goodness you are GORGEOUS!!! I would say yes you look like you have some Indian in you... or maybe hispanic or even a little Italian. You can see my picture, I'm Irish, Italian, and German. My dad is full blood German (well, as far back as he knows of...) and my mom is 1/2 Italian, 1/2 Irish, but I'm sure there's others in the mix. My skin is fair all year until I burn for the 1st time in the summer, then I really start to get tan, but I never beat out my hubby who works outside all the time. :\ :)

  • You're very pretty. You can tell you're very tan though, but i can betcha you're skin would be lighter if you didn't tan. You don't look Indian, maybe European, but you never know. My DH is 1/4 indian & he just looks like a white guy who gets real red & tan in the summer. If you're REALLY curious, do the genetics test. I watched something on TV where famous people were doing it, i think Oprah & some other folks were on there. Anyway, there was this lady who SWORE up & down she was native american. She was a very light skinned black woman & she even changed her name to a native american name like "singing hawk" or something ridiculous like that...lol, Well, when they tested her DNA, they found out she had NO native American in her...lol! She as so pissed & shocked! It was hilarious!

  • I've always wondered why people in the US are so fixated on their "heritage"... As far as I'm concerned, if you were born here, you're "American". Unless your parents were first generation immigrants, you would have none of the customs/traditions of "the old country" anyway, and in most cases (unless they were English/Irish) don't even speak the language anymore. I can say I'm Dutch, because I was born and raised there. But it really irritates me if somebody says they're "Italian Americans" for example, when they don't speak Italian and half of the time don't even know how to find Italy on a map... Sorry, personal pet peeve.

    I didn't mean to attack you, I just don't really understand why it's important, I guess...
