    Theodore was from Hushtyn, Ukraine. His kids have Ukrainian names like Dmytro. I’m pretty sure they were Ukrainian (like everybody in Canada with the last name Dziadyk).

    Carly Rae Jepsen is Polish (Catholic I believe). Evelyn Allen, her paternal grandmother was the daughter of Ken Allen and Rose Dziadyk (1915-1987). Rose was the daughter of Theodore Fred Dziadyk and Annie Rusmavich. Theodore (1863-1945) was born in Poland and died in Canada. Annie was born in Galicia. Carly is at least 1/16th Polish. I think Annie was also of ethnic Polish ancestry, if that’s the case Carly is 1/8th. Sincerely bearboy/jackson9

    She clearly does have Eskimo Canadian genes.

      Not everyone with hooded eyes has indigenous ancestry. I’ve seen so many white and black people with hooded eyes and not a drop of indigenous blood is running through their veins.

    I am not sure if Arnie was the son of Axel Jepsen and Elvera Christensen:

    The informant is seemed to be him (A. Jepsen).

    But, I have a clue that Arnie was probably born in Carlisle, Saskatchewan through his brother, Carl Axel:

    Let’s figure it out.

      I can’t find anything more than that. Have you found Fergie’s Mexican ancestry yet? (kidding).

        Manila is right…. Axel Jepsen 1898 (Arhus, Denmark) and Lydia Elvira Christensen (1911-1995) born also in Denmark were in fact Arnie Jepsen’s parents. Axel was the son of Hans Jepsen and Karen Sorine Moller. Lydia was the daughter of Christian Christensen and Mette Nielsen.
