It's time for a confession. My children are American mutts. Their mother is an American mutt. My ancestry includes (but is not yet limited to) Prussian German, English and Irish (both northern and southern for variety). Their father's ancestry is (but is not yet limited to) Latvian, Lithuanian and Russian Jewish as well as possibly Spanish Sephardic. Actually I am not sure which word in that sentence should have come first. Is it Spanish Sephardic or Sephardic Spanish? Perhaps someone will enlighten me.
The fact of the matter is...there are no purebreds living in our house ...except possibly our canine household members.
It makes me happy that the melting pot that is America is well represented in my children. It sure makes researching their ancestry interesting!
Thank you for reading!
