Thank you for sharing this with us Hannah. Family origins and ancestory has always fascinated me.
I understand the frustration that can come with not ‘looking’ like the stereotype society assigns people based on their physical location or heritage. My daughters are fair skinned, hazel-eyed, dishwater blonde Latinas. Their father is Mexican, but because I have Germanic/Irish roots, they look nothing like their fathers side of the family or most of their cousins.
