    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.

        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).

    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
