was she born really in 1985?

she looks like 50

I’m sorry, but I still don’t see the point with “Austrian/Czech” instead of simply “Czech”. Austrian people are from the country today known as Austria, so to write “born in Austria” is misleading, given that her great-great-grandmother, more likely than being an Austrian of Czech descent, was probably just a Czech, from the Czech Republic. If her ancestor had an ambigous surname I would understand, but “Patucek” is clearly Czech.

How do you know that Louisa Patucek was “just” a Czech rather than an Austrian of Czech descent? The census lists Adeline E. Hock’s parents as having been born in Austria.

madman February 6, 2017 at 2:26 pm

I looked up some more information about Louise Patucek, and it looks like you are right this time. This marriage record lists her as being born in Vienna, Austria (although she could still be fully Cezch).

Anyway, this is an exception. “Austria” in censuses is often just short for Austria-Hungary, and people from that country sometimes wrote down “Austria” instead of their native region. You’ll find some people whose birthplace varies between “Austria” and “Czechoslovakia”, depending on the census. Most often, when a person is listed as born in Austria, the best assumption is that the person was native to the region where their surname originates. So I still object to the use of “Austrian/something else” on other profiles (such as Claire Danes).

Austrian —> Czech

I assure you, she’s a white woman 110 %. Try searching for her photos from the early to mid 2000’s, you’ll see her natural blonde hair. And what’s this shit about her being mestizo? Lol I swear people her just pull this shit right outta their asses without even seeing any real meetings. Benjamin Bratt is half Native American, but he looks like a full Amerindian! Some ethnicities don’t share, they take over lol

What’s up with the hair color

neiltennant December 8, 2017 at 5:08 am

Devotion November 6, 2015 at 7:06 pm

Looks Southern European.

She is not only German, she appears to have some Mestizo Mexican or some other Latin ethnic group in her genes. Her bone structure isn’t fully European. She is very exotic for a “German” woman.

Gurrl August 6, 2015 at 12:11 pm

Too much facial fillers. She is only 30!

Capricious October 8, 2015 at 6:37 am

What fully European?

There are so many Southern Europeans, who are true Europeans mind you, who look like her.

She can have Italian or Spanish ancestry. Gee…just because someone’s “exotic” doesn’t mean that they’re Mestizo or “Mexican”…..*sigh*

cwm85 October 8, 2015 at 11:20 am

Look of ignorance on this site…

neiltennant December 8, 2017 at 5:09 am

looks like 55

but i cannot believe she is just 32 haha

ihatemostpeople July 24, 2015 at 1:25 pm

She has chipmunk cheeks.

neiltennant July 12, 2015 at 11:29 am

her German ancestors do have only German Jewish surnames

she has some Jewish ancestry for sure !

A user July 24, 2015 at 3:17 pm

well until a Jewish ancestor is identified, it’s only an idea.

sarahle July 24, 2015 at 3:34 pm

these are just German surnames…. not Jewish at all…

Traveler July 7, 2015 at 4:56 am

Europeans can have so many different looks without being mixed. I actually know someone who looks like her and she is 100% white.
Why are people so jealous of Europeans? Haha.

A user July 7, 2015 at 10:37 am

Which of these comments sounded jealous to you?

M June 4, 2015 at 3:58 pm

There is no way in hell this girl is 100% white. She looks mixed with black and Native American, she could pass as a multiracial Puerto Rican or a multiracial Brazilian.

A user April 12, 2015 at 1:06 pm

ExoticNorway May 17, 2014 at 11:15 am

She looks a lot like Katherine Heigl, who has a pretty similar heritage.

WTF May 31, 2014 at 11:06 am

Capricious April 4, 2015 at 12:24 am

She just loves to tan herself (a la, Arianna Grande).

I assure you, she is 100% white.
