    Quote: Scottish/German - same conundrum. I'm basically a solitary person, but love deeply those that I let close to me. Stoic (thank you Mom) and slow to forget and forgive (that would be Dad). The Princess is Polish/Hungarian - slow to anger, quick to forgive, STUBBORN (her 2nd nickname is 'the Bulldog') - the most loving person I have ever known. [​IMG] Color me LUCKY!

    I'm always amazed at the number of Christian Lebanese, Syrians and Jordanians that make their way to the US.

    Off the top of my head, I'd guess Dutch. Any umlauts?

    I would have guessed German but that seemed too easy.

    Missouri seems to have a lot of French/German/Irish/Scots/Cherokee mix. Then go next door to Kansas..many many Germans. Not much of a sense of humor...and grumpy. [​IMG]

    ChickenCanoe you aren't the first one to think that is what my avatar meant. [​IMG] I am not out by Orem way here. Closer to Salt Lake City and West Valley but really about an hour away from anywhere significant. [​IMG]
    Any guesses on my maiden name - Sturtevant? (I have to admit I didn't really mind getting married and getting rid of that last name. I only hated it because my actual first name Deirdre would be mangled by every teacher as well as the last name)

    A lot of old French and German towns all over Missouri.

    Sturtevant, another stab in the dark. Norwegian? Danish? Dutch?

    that's my 3 guesses.
