On my maternal side I'm First Generation Irish American
On my paternal side I'm Second Generation Irish American as both my Grandparents arrived as a form of Indentured Servants offspring, my grandmother on the boat coming over and my grandfather in Ireland but his parents die on the boat and Ellis Island put my 4 year old grandfather on an Orphan Train to Montana.
So my ethnic heritage is certain....it's Irish! It's half Green from my maternal side and half Orange from the paternal.
What I'm wondering is how so many Americans have either some Cherokee in them or they're related to Pocahontas. I heard it all the time growing up in California in the 60's and 70's.
Wouldn't that make most people related?
