        What a weighted question… Who and or what exactly is “white”? What are the characteristics and bullet points one must have or hit to be labeled white?

        My two cents says that without looking at the genealogy she looks like she could be mestizo or possibly have African admixture. With knowing her background she’s Caucasian, but still looks more to have roots in the Mediterranean or middle east rather than West Europe.

        She’s more unique looking, more than classically “white”. If the genealogy is correct she’s white, but honestly she doesn’t look it… DNA test when?

    I’ve found some Irish ancestors on her maternal side. On her father’s side, she is a descendant of Adeline Victoria (Nelson) Henley, whose father was apparently Swedish, and of the French-born couple Jacques Bilbo/Bilbaud and Susannah DuToit. Susannah’s ancestors were from Moudon, Vaud, Switzerland.

    From what I’ve seen, all of her recent ancestors were listed as white on U.S. Censuses.
