I have always despised the blood percentage placed on those who wish to claim their heritage- it disgusts me, actually. I have been trying to prove my connection with the Abenaki for years because of oral family remembrances and still there is nothing. No document can explain the dark skinned parts of my family from French Canada, and if one looked at my sister or my grandfather or my great grandfather, you can see what I mean. VERY frustrating to prove...

I understand, I am not proud of the history of England. When it was written by its invaders. You may come Iran, but I you write the truth about America's founding fathers.

I was born near London and had been brought up in affluent well to do area in Essex. I became disillusioned with the attitude of snobbishness and shallowness of the people that I was surrounded by. I went to my nephews wedding a couple of years ago and attitudes are still the same as they were back then when I lived down there. The first questions they ask you are what do you for a living and how much money do you make. I told them I was a checkout girl and I just got a look of disgust back and they soon left my company. I live in Scotland now and when I meet people they ask me how I am. People up here are so much nicer towards each other, nobody is bothered about being posh, especially where I live.

100 % Swedish from the 1600s onwards. Before 1658 mostly Danish I believe.
