I have ancestors that came from Ireland both orange and green. I have ancestors that came from Scotland. I have ancestors that came from Prussian Poland. I have ancestors that were Alsatian German. I had a French Huguenot ancestor that landed in Virginia about .
I have ancestors that some say crossed an ice bridge from East Asia many thousands of years ago and were on the American continent to greet the Vikings, the Spanish, the English, the French and even St. Brendan.
Even before some of my ancestors came from Ireland, there was a marriage that brought in Spanish, Italian and Austrian to mix in with my Irish ancestors.
I am a Pedigree American Mutt.
Ireland has lots of great music. I have lots of Irish folk music but Ohhhh, if they only had something like “Scotland the Brave.”
North American. My Dutch and French Protestant lines are from the ‘s New Amsterdam, Swiss and more Dutch in the ‘s, plenty of Brits along the way. The Irish Catholic and French Catholic are buried in the back of the closet along with the rest of the skeletons.
My Presbyterian Scottish lines fought the Siege of Londonderry (that was a hideous affair) and came to the Americas in the s. They had no fear of warfare or mischief, and proceeded to overthrow English rule in the American Revolt. They loved dumping tea overboard.

My great grandparents were born in the following countries:
from Italy, from Ireland, from Norway and from Canada. So I am a rd generation American!
And while I have no Scots blood, I get goose bumps and my eyes tear whenever I hear bagpipes. They haunt me in an awesome way..
I have a little German, Irish, English, Polish and Dutch in my American body. I have red hair (mostly blonde now from the hot Florida sun) and the fair skin of the Irish. I have the temper of the Germans and the love of peace of the Dutch. The only Polish in me, is not real noticable. Most times, I admit to being mostly Mutt!
