This is always interesting to me:
Who are you and were do you come from?
For me on my dads side, my dad was 1st generation Kiwi (New Zealand).
My Grandad, his father was born in Bangalore, India.
My Great Grandad, was born Madras, India.
Great Great Grandad, born also Madras, India.
Great Great Great Grandad was born in Mauritius.
Then back to where it all began was with my Great Great Great Great Grandad who was born in Limmerick Eire (Ireland).
He bought his commission and was promoted to Brevet Major in 1819. He spent 35 years in service in the East Indies.
This is how we ended up with the Anglo Indian bloodline for many years.
I don’t know much about my mum’s heritage, other than her great grandmother was born in Sweden. My mum was also born in New Zealand.
My mum had 4 boys, all with brown eyes but 2 boys with blonde hair and 2 with dark hair. One of my brothers is so dark you would think he’s Middle Eastern or from somewhere like that.
Both of us girls are blonde with blue eyes.
My sister is the oldest and I’m the 5th.
We migrated to Australia when I was 4, as I had severe asthma and they thought the warmer climate would help me. It did to a certain degree, but I had asthma until I was 29 or maybe 30 and then low and behold, it went away like magic! *Poof*
My dad has fairly dark skin and in the summer we all go incredibly brown.
So, where do you come from?
