    Even so, if they are possibly her grandparents, then she’s “possibly Polish”, no? I’ve seen plenty of listings like that here.

  2. Mr. Postman says:

    If her paternal grandfather was Polish, shouldn’t that be listed?

      I don’t know, it would be a stunning omission for her not to mention the ancestry of her paternal grandfather, the origin of her surname, which is one quarter of her lineage. So maybe he wasn’t her biological grandfather or there is some other story. I’m not going with internet sleuthing over self-declaration quite yet in this case.

      Even her DNA test doesn’t seem to include any matches for Polish or anything Polish-related.
