Mm... I get asked this a lot irl. x_x;;

I'm Canadian. All my grandparents except one have Canadian roots. The exception was born in England. X3 I'm also partly Scottish, I think. o.o I ask my parents all the time, but I always forget what they tell me. ^_^;;

So basically all I know is that I'm Canadian, English, and Scottish. Probably a lot more, too. oO;

Hmm...-thinks- Well, I'm from America, and most Americans either were Native or came from England. My mom's papa was partly Native American, her momma partly French. My father was partly Scottish, so that's a part. And because I'm not sure if any of my extended family immigrated, I'm most likely English.

What do you mean how it happened...it's simple two people from different races had it with each other and so on.

It's easy to find my heratige all of my ancestors came from different parts of the United Kingdom the most famous of which were the caretakers of the Ilendonen Castle in Scotland.

Don't get me started on my heitage:

My dad is White with some Mexican in him. His father is from a purebred white family with Scottish roots. His (my dad's) mother is half White (don't know from where though...) and half Mexican
My mom is Mexican with some French (or Italian, I forget) in her. Her father was a purebred Mexican whose family migrated to Texas during the whole Pancho Villa ordeal (if you don't know what that was, look it up in Mexican history). My mom's mom was born and raised in Mexico and moved here when she went to college. I hear that one of her grandparents actually immigted to Mexico from Europe (I understand that they were aristocrats from the countrythey were from and came to Mexico as Missionaries hired by the Spanish crown)

Well my first ancestor to move to Canada was my father in 1970 because my grandfather wanted his sons to have a better education in university. My ancestors all had Vietnamese descent since the late 1700s but I'm not sure if they were partly Chinese although there is a high chance because China owned Vietnam for about 1000 years.

I'm 100% Chinese. My dad immigrated to Canada in 1993, and once he earned enough money off his work in May 1995, he bought plane tickets for my mom, my sis, and myself to come to Edmonton, Canada.

Oyyy.. let's see.. Well, my mom's mom mom's parents are from Spain.. But they moved to Mexico, where my mom's mom was born, then my mom was born there too. Oh, and about my Dad, his ancestors and him lived in Mexico. I guess..

To make matters simpler, I'm half mexican.

I was born in California, but when my ma spent with me eight months in mexico before I was born, but when she moved to California, I was born one month later. ^^;; So that kinda makes me half Mexican, and I don't know the other half.. O.o;; If u want a simpler explanation, I'm hispanic hurrah

*mexican people kill CaRtOON*

Wow! This is VERY interesting!
You must be very good at adapting different cultures!
Do you ever have culture gaps between your relatives?
