My maternal grandmother was born in NY but her parents were Jews who came from Austria in 1890. Can't find my maternal grandfather's family.

On my dad's side, his mother's people were primarily Dutch and English Quakers. Some of them came over with William Penn. His father's people were French.

I'm a mutt. grin

Father's side emigrated from Hannover Germany to Minnesota in 1859 (dairy farming). I am 7th-Gen German-Minnesotan. Mom's dad emigrated from Norway in 1920 (he was 20) to build ships in Tacoma WA. Been to see relatives in both countries (way cool!).
Since I've been to Norway, I can speak with authority on the Viking Restaurant shortage. As I recall, I spent 2 weeks starving in that country, because they only eat dry bread and goat cheese! So, that's why there are no restaurants - their menues would be limited. smile

Actually, being Jewish is one of those things that can refer to one's ethnicity OR religion. One can ethnically be a Jew without being a practicing Jew and one can be a practicing Jew without ethnically being a Jew. But there is such a thing as a Jewish ethnicity.
