As an American, when someone asks “what are you?” sometimes you can only guess.
“Uh, my mom’s Jewish and my dad is white?” was the best answer I could ever give up until now. Being a many MANYth generation American (direct descendant of one of the pilgrims on the Mayflower!) my exact ethnicity has been obscured in time.
Luckily, one of my uncles is super into DNA/family trees/heritage and the like. A couple of years ago his insights led me to find out that I am my own fifth cousin.
Now, I have the full breakdown of my DNA! Here it is!
Basically, my mother is Jewish and my dad is white.
