What are your roots?

I'm half Scottish and half American.
My mom grew up in Montrose, Scotland
my dad grew up in Chimayo, New Mexico.

I'm curious about the rest of you...

My ancesters are Armenian. Both parents were born and grew up in Armenia and surrounding countries and immigrated to the USA in the early 1920s.

I've never been. My Mom and her sisters and brother went back in the 70s.

There are some distant relatives but no one the family has been in contact with.

I grew up in an Armenian household in Massachusetts. Armenian spoken, Armenian foods served, my parents Armenian friends invited to visit.

I grew up bi-linguial but have last the vocabulary since I got married to someone who didn't speak the language.

My maternal grandmother was German and my paternal grandfather was Irish. I don't know about the rest. We have traced my grandmother's family back to 1756 where they lived in the Bavarian section of Germany before coming to the States via England. I have no idea what all that makes me.
