Best Answer - Chosen by Asker:
if your grandmother was 50% welsh!.!.!. then your mother (or father whichever side your grandmothers from) would be 25% welsh!.!.!. so then you'd be 12!.5% welsh, yes :P

Meaning you are 1/8th welsh!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

It depends on what your other grandparents were!. If any of them were also part Welsh, you would be more than 12!.5%!.
As a for instance, my dad's mother was of Scottish descent, and his father was of English descent!. Through my dad, I am 1/4 Scotch and 1/4 English!. My mother's parents were more mixed, but there was English, Irish, and German, at least!. Therefore, am 1/4 English through my dad, and probably another 1/4 English, at least, through my mother making me closer to 1/2 English!. You will have to check out all your grandparents before you can say for sure!.Www@QuestionHome@Com
