    My Ancestors

    I have ancestors. that come from Denmark. They came to the US for realign purposes. My mom has been having a hard time with their names. For she doesn't know the language. Plus some of the last names that they have. I don't know that much about the country.

    My grandmother was 100% Danish.

    When she passed away I received the book of her family history, which is great except I can't read/write/speak Danish. Maybe someday I'll figure out how to get it translated.

    A Little Bit.

    My father is one fourth Danish. Which gives me an eighth. It's not much, but I am proud of what I have. My dad has Danish eyes, and I was the only one of his four children to inherit those. I find them to be fantastic.

    I'm pure Danish but the most people I meet say to me that they think I look like I'm from Italy or Spain. I have brown hair and brown eyes so I guess that's the reason why many people don't think I look like I'm Danish. I am happy to live in Denmark but I also want to travel...
