After being inspired by "where are all the Welsh people" thread. I thought it would be interesting to talk about where we all originate from. My sister started to delve into the unknown and uncovered that we come from Welsh and Irish heritage. My personal view in terms of looking VERY far back into family history is that we MUST come from the Nordic/Viking genre if you like. My dad has blue eyes and strawberry blonde hair and pale freckly and my mum has blue eyes/pale(ish) skin brown hair. Actually saying that as my great grandmother was Welsh there is a clash especially with the Irish side. Irish and Welsh, to me seems to pale blue eyes and very dark hair and pale skin (Irish) and olive type skin and brown or darker eyes in Wales. (My personal view, of course not of everyone blah blah blah) I'm being purely subjective and non specific in terms of the whole population. (I feel I need to write some sort of disclaimer as this is a public forum to some extent and people take things very much the wrong way. I hope my thread is taken as intended) Ahhh now that's over what do you think?
