Some more info on his Griffith line:

Most recent immigrants are his 3rd great-grandfather Thomas W. Chester’s parents who were English.

I knew he had some black in him

But he doesn’t.

I think he is suggesting that the 12.5% unknown is black.

I just wasn’t sure if Matt’s great-grandfather Paul Warren Griffith was of British Isles or Czech descent.

One can confuse, since Baden (ca 20 km from Vienn)
and Baden-Baden in Germany are both “casino-towns”.
Maybe “x% german, and y% austrian”?
O’k, I don’t want to be too critical. I just mean, they are
two different countries

Excellent job (I mean %), but what means “German
along with Austrian”. Is Adolf alive again?

nnnnn December 19, 2012 at 11:46 pm

Isadors parents are not interesting. I just ment,
Austria is Austria and Germany is Germany
