i am mainly irish. like, 75%. my ancestors were irish royalty actually. but the rest is russian, scottish, and we think some Alaskan native through slavery marriage, but we’re really unclear about it.
i’ve been discussing this a lot…
scots. irish. french. and supposedly cherokee, but isn’t everyone, over here?
what’s YOUR story?
