Well 50% Spanish and the rest depends on how the other nationalities rank!. Maybe 25% Scottish and 12!.5% each of English and French!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

Dear Rachael;

1st!. Spanish nationality is not a "gene"!. It's part of your heritage (background) & definitely not your race!.

2!. In this same category, I have a very detailed answer as to how you can see what your ethnicity is!. Start with two boxes joined by a line - mark one Mom & the other Dad!. Then draw a line down from the middle of each box and attach 2 boxes to both your Mom & Dad!. This is for their parents - your grandparents and then another line down the middle of each box and attach 4 boxes to your grandmother & 4 to your grandfather's!. Write in the nationality of each person's parents in the right boxes!. You will wind up with 8 boxes!. On your father's side you say you are Spanish so that would be 50 % or 4 Spanish Grandparents & 8 GG parents!. Check the nationalities of your other great grandparents!. Each box equals 1/8th so if you have 4 different nationalities then you'd be 1/8th !.!.!.!.!.!., & so on!. If 2 or 3 are the same (say, Scottish, for example) you'd be 3/8ths Scottish!. In Genealogy, Please go to the question "WHAT RACE/ NATIONALITY IS BRYAN DONAHUE !?" by Marthawa and read my answer there!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

This is not something that we can tell you just by what you have given us!. What you need to do is sit down and figure out your family tree!. Find out what ethnicity(s) your great grand parents were and work down to yourself!. For a more accurate answer you can go back even further!.

This is pretty much the only way because other then that you are just going to get wild guesses!.Www@QuestionHome@Com
