I recall a very informative Roots Tech presentation I saw online about Genetic Genealogy where the presenter talked about a very, very remote tribe of people who had pretty much been on their own for thousands of years, and some scientists took DNA samples and tried to isolate some genes that could be used as markers of just that one tribe. They couldn't do it. People have been fraternizing forever -- in the end, we're all mongrels. :-)

I must say, I am somewhat surprised.

Having committed the mortal sin of marrying a non-Italian, my son is 50% Italian, 25% English, 12.5% Irish and 12.5% Swedish. Or thereabouts.


Ciao Carmine, I'm contributing a few years late to this discussion but like yourself, I am also a "real" (read 100%) Italian with all four of my grand-parents born in the same region and same province of Italy and they and their ascendants have been there for at least 1,000 years. I have no children of my own to pass my Italian ethnicity onto but if I had had children with the love of my life (whom I met late in life), our children would be 3/4 Italian and 1/4 Mexican. A nice mix if I do say so myself.

The First Holy Roman Emperor crowned in Sicily by the Pope was German who married a Sicilian Queen in Sicily. She promptly deported all the arabs from Sicily and shipped them off to the Emperors octagon shaped hunting palace in the forests of Puglia.....she detested arabs.

How far did you get in tracing your irish ancestry? What part of Ireland did the irish side came from since those on the east used to paddle over to the English side and join the Roman army which was led by the Roman Centurions while the locals joined the infantry.....It got so bad that Rome sent in their version of Internal Affairs and marched them down to Spain permanently. I assume you have already reviewed http://joewihit3.Tripod.com/genealogy/IRELAND.html

I think most people aren't 100%, at least people from the US/Canada. I'm 50% italian, my dbd (deadbeat dad) was full blooded. My mother was half polish, a quarter hungarian, and a quarter german. I identify more with the Italian side because I look italian and because I grew up in a very Italian dominated city and neighborhood.
