My ancestors were all from Germany.

Most were killed during the second world war but my parents and grandparents had the foresight to leave when my father was demoted from being manager of a factory to sweeping the floors.
They then left luckily, before the war actually started.

Some of them were Irish. You could pretty much tell that by looking at me.
I am British to the core, a bit of everything.....Welsh, Irish, Scottish. My grandmother came out from England on a sailing ship and it took 5 months! Bit of trivial info

I'm not quite certain of the origins of my family. Many of the first generation members either died before I was born or didn't choose to say much about the family's origin.
I was born in England. I have Russian, Romanian and Polish bloodlines.My m um used to joke when she was still alive that she was a gypsy.I found this all terribly romantic when I was in my teens!
Well, it all depends on what you mean by ancestors.... I'm British which means I am a mongrel mix up of many different races.
My dad's family came from the very north of Scotland before moving to London and he is clearly descended from Vikings - and oddly this was confirmed by a professor in Belgium who was researching a medical condition I have and had a theory that it only affected those with Viking genes.
My mum appears to be from more solid Norman/Saxon stock but also has Scottish family a few generations back in the family tree, so some Celtic genes must be in the mix as well.
But those are all hundreds of years ago. We did recently discover that a grandmother of my father's that we had always believed to be Scottish was actually Manx but otherwise we're either Scots or English.
I'm Irish, but the family have been in Australia for about 7 generations.
My ancestry is a mix of east- and western European. According to my grandmother also Swedish and she is sure she descended from Carl Linnaeus. Would certainly explain my love for botany!
I was born in England.

I also think we had some French.
But nothing else....
South African

All from the UK - Scotland, England and Isle of Mann.
Most of mine were Scottish (my Grandparents migrated to Australia in the 1930s), but I've also got some English and Danish ancestors.
