    The Scots, the Irish and the French.

    I get +2 on all attack rolls against my racial enemy, the English.

    okay, NOW I'm done with my mom's side. I lost my info and had to start over. My mom is:
    French, Scottish, English, Irish, Bavarian, German, Swiss, Welsh and Cherokee.

    The Cherokee, of course is unproven and isn't enough to count for anything. My mom is only 1/128th, which is only .78125%. That's not enough enough to show up on a genetic test. The Swiss is a maybe since that particular ancestor was born on the German/Swiss border.

    NOW I'm off to do my dad's side.

    I'm a mutt. I've got Cherokee, Irish, Black Dutch, and goddess knows what all else.
    When the stars shine bright through the engine's trail
    And the dust of another world drops behind
    When my ship is free of the open sky
    That's a damn good day to my way of mind

    There's a barren planet you never can leave
    There's a rocky valley where we lost a war
    There's a cross once hung round a soldier's neck
    There's a man's faith died on Serenity's floor

    But I stood my ground and I'll fly once more
    It's the last oath that I ever swore

    If you have birth certificates and death certificates going back to the Dawes rolls (end of 1800's - 1915 or so) and your ancestor's name is on the Dawes roll then you can get your citizenship into Cherokee Nation. I'm 1/128 but I'm a citizen and my children, grand children, et al. will be citizens until they choose not to be.

    Let's see..

    On my biological Grandfather's side I'm Prussian-German from Silesia. My family(Goad) immigrated to the Tennessee/North/South Carolina area in 1812 or so, after selling their titles and land. Bought a few plantations and the accompanying slaves. Civil War rolls around, we're broke. Damn it.

    On my mother's side, I've got Scotts-Irish, some Norwegian and good Proper English stock as well.

    I sort of have a record on my mom's side, but things don't add up on it.

    no less than the trees and the stars;
    you have a right to be here.

    And whether or not it is clear to you,
    no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

    Therefore be at peace with God,
    whatever you conceive Him to be..."

    The rolls were pretty horrid. From what I've heard there are dogs on the rolls (more family members meant more land). It sucks that your claim was rejected though.
