I love this site and i have told my friends to be on this site

most of them visit the site every day

i wonder how many traffic we have got on this site each day!

on the other site im ashamed that i tell people for example AARON CARTER HAS american indian and jewish roots but on the other day those comments are deleted

many things here are not accurate enough

there are people outside who still think that AARON CARTER is indian american and jewish :-))

What’s up with so many Israeli politicians being profiled? Since when are they celebrities? They seem like unnecessary additions. I understand U.S. politicians, and prime ministers from various countries, but there’s a bunch of seemingly unimportant politicians being added, and they seem to be mostly of Israeli origin. Just food for thought.

follers December 5, 2017 at 10:26 am

…because Manila added two Israeli Prime Ministers and one Israeli President?

…or I added one (1) minister with an interesting look and “exotic” Iraqi Jewish background, like six months ago?

It seems like the quality on this web site has so eroded in the last two years that neiltennant now appears distinguished and statesmanlike, compared to three-four regulars commenters in particular.

Or at the very least, two years ago, there was no army of fictional 1/1024 Native Americans who run linkfarms; no commands being issued at me to do, pronto, what I always do anyway, transcribe down Finding Your Roots’ findings (roughly 12 hours after the episode first aired); and no snarky alphabet soup. Although I suppose bearboy’s obvious trolling does go back a few years.

These aren’t positive developments on 2015.

Eroded? The site has improved a lot in recent times due to Bablah, Madman and Stlucas contribution. I remember you complaining about the incapacity of the site to attract genealogy fans, and now you’re still unhappy. Give up as moderator

follers December 5, 2017 at 12:06 pm

Let’s get someone who’ll jolt down your 1/1024 Native American findings for Courteney Cox (never mind that this totally irrelevant tidbit wasn’t even factually accurate).

Having 5 more links to ”other” websites of identical content, some of which copy what I had put up here first, is not an improvement. It’s link spam. You weren’t doing that two and a half years ago. I have no idea what the point is.

I wasn’t talking about Madman, I don’t think.

follers December 5, 2017 at 12:09 pm

Nor about St Lucas.

As for Bablah, that was not the right response to the alphabet soup thing on the A Martinez page.

andrew December 5, 2017 at 12:41 pm

I won’t post Wikitree’s links anymore

andrew December 5, 2017 at 3:39 pm

If they’re reliable, I will post them.

madman December 5, 2017 at 12:54 pm

I wonder when this site will have its breakthrough. It surprises me it hasn’t happened yet. The ethnic background of celebrities seems like something that would interest a lot of people, yet there’s only a handfull of regular commenters.

When it does happen, I will be proud of having been one of the first regular contributers to EthniCelebs.

follers December 5, 2017 at 1:32 pm

People have to log in to post comments, which wasn’t always the case.

passingtime85 December 5, 2017 at 3:22 pm

… take away from this…Sorry for not being more helpful.

fuzzybear44 December 6, 2017 at 12:17 am


Actually there were a number of people on the site at one time. over time, they have come and gone. Others visit the site, but don’t comment. Even I did that for over a year. People at one time loved put their mixed babies pictures on here, while others wanted you to try and guess their ethnicity.

andrew December 6, 2017 at 11:36 am

To accuse Bearboy of trolling is unfair


neiltennant December 25, 2017 at 2:44 pm

i admire BEARBOY very much and i enjoy his comments and his knowledge

however he wrote a lot of mean things to me accusing me such things which sound very racist

only because im part afghan descent he thinks that im not european in looks.

fuzzybear44 December 4, 2017 at 1:36 pm

how about bernie casey , well known Actor an ex-football player recently pass away

neiltennant November 28, 2017 at 6:28 pm

im shocked to see that most of my friends have discovered this site and are here every day

i hope that the won’t find out that im writing here

ashash November 28, 2017 at 11:02 pm

Because then they will discover that you are a nutcase?

andrew November 28, 2017 at 5:45 am


I suggest you to create a “Ballon d’Or” Tag. For those who are not football/soccer fans, the Ballon d’Or is the Oscar of football. Here are all the winners whose profiles are on EthniCelebs:

1966 Bobby Charlton
1971, 1973, 1974 Johan Cruyff
1972, 1976 Franz Beckenbauer
1983, 1984, 1985 Michel Platini
1987 Ruud Gullit
1995 George Weah
1997, 2002 Ronaldo
1998 Zinedine Zidane
2003 Pavel Nedved
2004 Andrij Shevchenko
2005 Ronaldinho
2006 Fabio Cannavaro
2007 Kakà
2008, 2013, 2014, 2016 Cristiano Ronaldo
2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2015 Lionel Messi

Thank you so much

Manila November 20, 2017 at 3:53 am

I suggest you to add Charles Manson, who is recently deceased. I am currently busy with the Chilean politicians.

Pegzi November 2, 2017 at 1:08 pm

Fuck you and fuck everyone on this website. Worthless trash.

ashash November 28, 2017 at 11:02 pm

Why so mad?

passingtime85 October 25, 2017 at 9:31 am

Now that the fourth episode of Finding Your Roots has aired, Ta-Nehisi Coates, Ava DuVernay, and Janet Mock should be profiled. They actually showed their full genetic charts in this episode. They haven’t done that in a while.

fuzzybear44 October 25, 2017 at 1:10 pm

Was the whole show just about African Americans this time?

follers October 25, 2017 at 1:28 pm

Yes, the “theme” was African-Americans, but, of course, Janet Mock’s one quarter Hawaiian ancestry was also mentioned. Much as in, the Irish-American episode, Bill O’Reilly’s small amount of Colonial American ancestry, and Soledad O’Brien’s half Cuban ancestry, were also mentioned.

fuzzybear44 October 25, 2017 at 3:34 pm

Okay just asking. The only one I knew was Ava Du Vernay ,I’ve never seen the other two . So when I google their image, I saw a bunch of black people

passingtime85 October 25, 2017 at 6:28 pm

I shouldn’t laugh, but I did. Thanx for the anecdote.

bearboy October 24, 2017 at 6:51 am

@ethnic mind deleting all my messages and submissions of celebrities?

passingtime85 October 24, 2017 at 11:20 am

Why man, you getting out of the amateur genealogist game?

bablah October 24, 2017 at 11:40 am


For some reason all this genealogy causes a lot of mental breakdowns.

bearboy October 24, 2017 at 11:59 am

You’re right @Passingtime85 there is no reason to get rid of my account on this great website, thanks :-)

passingtime85 October 24, 2017 at 12:29 pm

bearboy your comments and submissions do indeed have merit most of the time, can’t say all the time because I don’t read everyone of your comments, but keep on keeping on, don’t let other users discourage you. Keep contributing.

bearboy October 24, 2017 at 12:43 pm

Thanks, really appreciate that!

passingtime85 October 25, 2017 at 9:26 am

You’re welcome.

madman October 14, 2017 at 8:17 am

In my opinion, “Scots-Irish (Northern Irish)” should be replaced with a single term. Northern Irish would presumably be someone from Northern Ireland, while it here refers generally to protestant people in Ireland of British descent. Those people came mostly from Ulster, an area that is different (larger) than Northern Ireland, although it encompasses it, but also from Dublin. Northern Irish refers to a region, not to ancestry.

And I don’t see why different terms are used for Americans and Brits. Why would an ancestor have a different name if he immigrated to England than to the U.S.?

If you ask me, Ulster-Scots would be the most fitting for all.

bearboy October 11, 2017 at 12:03 pm

@Follers, if you could respond to these questions I would appreciate it. 1. I am deeply sorry for adding people not famous enough to have pictures on or so the first question is all the celebrities I posted without a picture can you please delete? 2. I really hope I didn’t offend you with my stupidity as stated before. Can you please say if there are any hard feelings? 3. Can you delete all my offensive comments to defending Trump comments to getting annoyed with good people like Neil Tennant? Again I am really sorry I won’t add any more celebrities for awhile. And if you can please delete all the celebrities I added without pictures. Thanks

bearboy October 11, 2017 at 7:39 am

This might sound like a silly idea for this website but could there be a page dedicated to demographics overall as to what percentage of celebrities on ethnic celebs are Irish, Italian, African-American, etc? Only a suggestion.

bearboy October 11, 2017 at 11:42 am

Oh well is there a way to delete the last person I submitted? Also if anyone could confirm Angela Kinsey who I think is somewhat famous from the Office I would appreciate it.

Pegzi October 8, 2017 at 12:08 am

Someone hacked into my account and left stupid comments. I want them to be deleted.

neiltennant November 21, 2017 at 8:12 am

being drunk and posting comments here and wanting them deleted after you regret them IS NOT GOOD
