She does have French and German ancestry, it’s before 1500 though.

Her daughter, Liza Minnelli, looks nothing like her.

I have gone back on judy’s family tree. She is not french or german at all. Gumm may sound german, but am sure it can be english.

Judy was irish, scottish and possibly english. Irish/scottish on mother’s side(mother’s maiden name was milne) and possibly english on her father’s side. Her maternal grandmother was a ‘fitzpatrick’ which is an irish surname. Some of judy’s ancestors came from ireland :)
