From northwestern Pakistan(Pukhtoon) so it could be a mixture of any of hundreds of races/nationalities, including but not limited to Afghans, Turks, Greeks, Persians, Arabs, Indians and a few others who've been left there genetic footprint there.

China. We have a pretty damn old civilisation!

EDIT: I think I should go into detail. Dad from mainland China, Mum from Indonesia (some of her ancestors are from China as well), although considering the Indonesian post-Dutch colonial rule I'm pretty sure I have slivers of Dutch, Japanese and Portuguese blood in my veins :getmecoat:

Father says that we're descended from an ancient line of English nobility which dates back to the reign of William the Conqueror.

Only know as far back as 1600 (so probably more than most of the above) but... Scotland. Lotsa pale skin, red hair and green eyes in my family so I guess it's safe to say there's a fair deal 'celtic' blood in me.

My maternal Grandfather is an American who had German parents, my maternal grandmother was born to a Scottish mother who had Irish potato-famine fleeing parents name the McGrory's, though she happened to be born in London, and then quickly moved here. My Mum was conceived in California, was born here and then returned there for her first four years before returning here. My Dad's family all seem pretty Scottish, are named Milne and Mann and probably came from particularly thrifty peasants who ate grit, bathed using only dirt and enjoyed burning witches.

Mother is Sarawakian (Bidayuh/Dayak, to be precise - it's an old headhunter tribe) and Chinese. Father is Irish - red hair and all, though funnily enough he ended up as a Black Irish, and English.

Bidayuh and Dayak! :eek: Woah, I am meeting a lot of Sarawakians today! Does your mother come from Kuching, or smaller places like Miri or Sibu?

I find it very unlikely that she'd live in longhouses, so ... :getmecoat:

Mother's parents English, father's parents Irish. And it goes back in history as such.

Mother's family were originally French, but re-located to England in the late 17th Century.
