One half Irish, one quarter German, one quarter French by blood. Culturally I identify more with my French ancestry, as that is the family I was raised with and French became my first language.
Generally speaking, the more people talk about "being saved," the further away they actually are from true salvation.

Maybe your a little Goth or Hun, perhaps some Bulgarian, or even Roman ? Be hard to say I bet. Long heritage in Europe.

In that case, my French blood could easily have originated from Celts, Germans, or Romans. Maybe even a little English or Iberian, who knows?

In the 1300's Romania was under two principalities, Moldavia and Walachia later which fell to the Ottoman's. Was not until the unification of Moldavia and Walachia in the 1800's that Romania was recognized as a Nation, according to my internet sources.

Considering the location of Romania, I am sure the history is quite rich. With Ottomans to the south, Romans, goths and Germanians all around. Must of been quite a difficult place to live back in the medieval time period. I think I wish to read more about this place...

Most Filipinos are already multiracial as well, brought by the early colonization and the widespread globalization today. It is sad however that many had left the country and most of them had also forgot already their rich heritage. My grand parents were part Spanish by blood. But for me, I am proud to say that I am 100% Pinoy! how I wanted to see a great change in this small country, relive once more the Bayanihan that Filipinos in the past used to do in their communities.

actually Romania was divided between Moldavia, Walachia and Transilvania, and a few other minor provinces.
PS: It's not the ideal home now either :lol:

Mostly french from what I can trace (there is one polish great grand mother). But the next generation of my family is extremely diverse.

English with Irish ancestors, I think my ancestors made a beeline for England due to the potato famine.
