    I believe the current theory of Palaeoanthropologists is that we all came from Africa around Ethiopia and Kenya. So I guess this question is pointless.

    Well looking at my brother-n-law I swear his ancestors came from deep in the jungle and swing from vines.

    Russian, Serbian, English and Irish. I didn't see a category for that. How about adding "Heinz 57".

    My dad was aluminum and my mom was carbon fiber... that's how I ended up with a carbon fork and seat stays with an aluminum frame.

    btw, this topic should be in the Foo forum.

    rapidcarbon,

    I'm afraid you're going to get some flack from the politically correct crowd. "How dare you mention race!".

    Anyway, I've only scratched the surface of my ancestry but for sure there is lineage going back to Greece, France, England, Ireland, Miami Indian from the Northeast US. Probably a few others for sure that I'm forgetting off the top of my head.

    The really interesting thing is that I've traced only a fraction of the lines back even a few generations. Chances are good that someone with more than a couple of generations in this melting pot has a pretty good mix of ethnology.

    Observed Trials. Though more of a ballet than a race.
