Well my parents are Dutch and I think both of their families do not have any heritage outside The Netherlands, we never investigated that either so I am not 100% on that. My girlfriend is more interesting, her heritage is Indonesian & German from her father's side.

Chinese through and through, although I was born in Australia and have an Australian accent.

My paternal grandfather was born in Southern China in 1906. My paternal grandmother was born in Singapore to immigrant Chinese parents in 1914. My maternal grandfather was born in China...date unknown...and my maternal grandmother was born in Malaysia to Chinese parents, also in 1914.

They're all dead now. The last one to go was my paternal grandmother, just last year. She was 97.

25% Greek (Otylo via Corsica)
25% Sephardi Jew (Narbonne)
25% French (Picardy)
25% Ukranian Jew (Odessa)

Fun bit since my wife is 50% Portuguese (Porto) and 50% German (Hamburg),so my daughter is truly European

Mother's side: Manav Türks from south Marmara. Tough today "Manav" is used to describe not an ethnicity but used as a generic term to describe indigenous people of some place in some parts of Türkiye, my family are real ethnic Manavs. They are from a little Manav village, they have their own authentic culture, slightly different from so called Manavs.

Father's side: Dadaş from Erzurum. Dadaş is not an ethnicity, but Türks of Erzurum call themselves Dadaş. I don't know much about them, except that they are very nationalistic and very religious people.

So i'm an Anatolian Türk.

My ancestors were nearly all swedes except my mums grandfather who was finnish. The furthest I can trace my roots back to is a swedish miller called Olof Nilsson, he was probably born in the in the last decades of the 16 th century.

To the best of my knowledge, I am a pure bred Englishman. Family records on one side go back to the early C17th, but unfortunately not very far back on the other side (no further than early C20th) due to various reasons.

But I have a Latvian username.
