    Might as well just make every French-Canadian-tag with a – between the words.

      He’s not really French-Canadian though, as there’s no recorded Sam Delamere living in Canada at that time. Though, there is a Sam Delamere who lived in Ireland but I’m not sure if that was another Sam Delamere who lived at the same time as the “french-canadian” Sam Delamere.

      Also, I’m sorry I f’ed up the fractions on his ancestors. (I’m not good with fractions.) I also have more info on Cliff Curtis. Should I just post the description in the comment or… through submit a celeb) thanks -comrade (just a genealogy nerd).

        I guess your comment refers to Taika Waititi’s page. This is the feedback section for the website, my comment was only adressing that this tag is repeatedly spelled in two different ways when something is edited, creating two tags where there should be one.

        Hmmm… so do you think Sam Delamere is a rumour? Or was he of a different nationality? Have you looked through Canadian censuses or read something from someone who has? Because using the site that I often use for that, familysearch.com, I wouldn’t expect to find him that early.

        You can post any information in the comment section if the celebrity already has a page. If they don’t, you can submit it through “Submit a celeb”!

        If you have access to genealogy information about New Zealanders, do you have anything on the Flight of the Conchords-guys? I’m very curious about their background.

          “my comment was only adressing that this tag is repeatedly spelled in two different ways when something is edited, creating two tags where there should be one.” sorry, my mistake…

          I think Sam Delamere was real but his nationality isn’t French-Canadian. I think Sam* Delamere originated from Ireland/UK, traveled to Canada’s West Coast to be a whaler and then ended up in New Zealand for the whaling business. His ancestors probably thought he was french as De La Mer (meaning ‘from the sea’) is also a french name. But when it’s spelled Delamere it could actually be a Norman/British-Isles name. It seems to be quite common near Dublin, Ireland and Cheshire, England.

          *Samuel (Sam) is also more of an anglo name, it’s not that common among french speakers.

          So that makes me think Sam Delamere might have been Anglo/Irish. But I could be wrong, maybe he was a french speaker, after all and when asked where he came from he just said “de la mer” (from the sea) because he was a whaler.

          “do you have anything on the Flight of the Conchords-guys?” i’ll look into it.

    Anyone have any clue on what Brenna D’Amico’s ethnicity is? I read somewhere that she’s mixed but I can’t find any confirmation.

  3. Oaken05 says:

    Why can’t some comments be replied to? There is a ridiculous comment posted on the 22nd on this page that needs one, but lo and behold, no direct reply option.

  4. Oaken05 says:

    Curious if anyone can find any background information on automotive journalist and Top Gear co-host Chris Harris? I suspect he might have some South Asian ancestry, but have no idea.

    what fraction is considered remote? what fraction is considered distant?

    • Oaken05 says:

      Because of how many editors the site appears to have, there is no consisten definition of these terms. I do wish there was, though.

      • follers says:

        Only two people can edit this site, and I don’t think one of them adds “distant” or “remote” much.

        • jackson9 says:

          (1) follers (2) ethnic. thank you follers for pointing this out. it’s sad that people can’t realize that equals “two” editors on this site.

          • madman says:

            It’s so sad that the third editor, Neiltennant, has left. He was the only one who knew that Summer Glau is 1/8th Chinese. And now when he’s gone, the site just help to cover up the truth.

          • andrew says:

            he was unlucky with his background (Afghans have low IQ and high crime rate in Western societies), but Summer Glau do look Eurasian. It can happen.

    • bablah says:

      Problem is, it’s usually people of colonial descent that have these in-depth trees where people find their French Huguenot and Dutch ancestors. And it’s usually through more than one line, but from 17th and 18th century. So if you were to quantify it, it would be like 73/8192 or some ridiculous number like that, while being of no significance to their recent ancestors.
