My grandmother was from Dublin Ireland, she didn't come out to this country until 1948.
She spoke perfect Irish Gaelic, ranked native speaker at Loreto of Bray (where she graduated from).
Both my grandfather's were mixed blood Cherokee.
And NOBODY CARES. Let's all just get along. None of us are any better than the rest of us.
Everything doesn't have to be a pissing contest.
Everything does need to be a pissing contest. It's what we live for. :)

Marsha, do you know your descent? :)
I may be off a point here or there but according to Ancestry.com, I'm 76% English, 23% Scots/Irish (they lump it together but majority of genealogy research that's been done by family goes to Scottish rather than Irish lineage), and 1% Finnish which I blame on Vikings raiding Scotland and England. :) Any other lines were so minimal as to not be counted. No pissing contest intended--them's just the facts.

Those damn Vikings :) Scotland was the only country they couldn't conquer, hell yes. I actually found out recently that my Great Grandfather was born in New Jersey before his family emigrated back. New Jersey ... (shudder) :) Kids at school used to make fun of his accent, New Jersey accent that is.
