    Can someone find the name of Norwegian NFL kicker Kaare Vedvik’s mother? I’ve been able to find that Kaare’s father is a Nigerian immigrant to Norway, but can find nothing on this mother other than that it seems he took her surname (Vedvik). I suspect she’s native Norwegian, but that’s nothing but a guess at this point.

    I think if a legitimate DNA test says a celebrity is more than 1% of a certain ethnicity it should be included in the ethnicity not just included in the profile e.g. Paul Ryan’s 3% Ashkenazi Jewish heritage.

      I think it’s BS and that’s just your own sick fetish for AJ ancestry.

      • jackson9 says:

        1. No for any ethnicity that comes up over 1%. I was giving the first example that came to my head.

        2. I don’t have a sick fetish and if you don’t like my ideas which apparently says “are welcomed” you could be friendlier about it.

        • andrew says:

          I enjoy a lot your activity in this site, but you do have a fetish for Ashkenazi Jewish stuff. Nothing wrong with that, though.

          • jackson9 says:

            I appreciate you saying that Andrew, thank you! and I admit I do have a fetish for the Jewish culture and celebrities I will try not to be too obsessive in the future.

          • andrew says:

            DNA tests’ regional sections are still a somewhat grey area, so I think there’s nothing really definitive atm.

    Please implement search-by-first-letter (in alphabetical order) and search-by-ethnicity (eg. everyone w French ancestry). Thx

    • bablah says:

      When you click All Celebs Index, they’re alphabeticaly ordered, but there’s no search-by-letter option. The search-by-ethnicity is already implemented through tags. You click on or search for a tag “French” and it pops out all people with French ancestry starting with the ones that were last added.

        “You click on or search for a tag “French” and it pops out all people with French ancestry starting with the ones that were last added.”

        And if that’s the only way to do it, it should definitely be fixed. There should be a way to view more than 5 at a time (especially when it’s the most recent 5).

        • madman says:

          I’d like to see a way to view more than one tag at a time, so that it shows all the people who are tagged with all the ethnicities you’ve chosen.

          • ethnic says:

            hmm ill look into that

          • madman says:

            Thanks! I think that’s something people might be curious to see.

            If you’re interested in other improvements that I think should be made (that hasn’t been responded to yet), here’s a few:
            *Not have pages that are klicked on from a search open in a new tab (very frustrating to have to always close the old page down)
            *A section with celebrities who have large parts of their ancestry missing (probably best to make it of only fairly well known celebrities, or simply the ones the moderators decide on for arbitrary reasons, otherwise the list would be endless)
            *A list of all the tags on here (that way, if you want to see, for example, the female Oscar winners, you don’t have to search for one first, and then click the link in their profile). I think that bands should have their own tags, instead of just links to the other members, as well

            For the structure of pages:
            *Having all relatives being listed row-wise after the basic information instead of in a paragraph
            *Bold text for the links to other pages

          • follers says:

            I strongly oppose both of these.

          • comrade says:

            It would also be great if there was a set way of describing the ethnicity.

            Some are listed as percentages, some as fractions, some as ‘(mother) (father)’, some as just the ethnicity without mentioning mother/father … it’s kinda confusing.

    What do you do when a celebrity says they’re of a certain ethnicity but they’re technically not?

    I was interested in researching Sasha Lane’s profile because it states that she’s African-American and Māori (which is an unusual combination) however I’ve researched her family tree and can’t find any Māori. Then why would she say she’s Māori?

    Like in these articles, she says her mum is part Māori:

    Bablah and I have come to the conclusion that John Stanley D’Arcy Tuck is definitely Sasha’s grandfather and his wife Denise Lesley Morris is her grandmother but there’s no Māori in either of their sides.

    • Oaken05 says:

      Sometimes, people are just lying for whatever reason; sometimes, it’s a false part of family lore that just keeps getting passed down. I don’t find it particularly unusual. For instance, there are a large amount of Americans who are told they have a distant indigenuous ancestor, and later find out that it’s not the case. I’ve heard of the same thing happening in Australia. Sometimes, it’s just feel more a connection with where you were born, or to make a family feel “exotic.”

    Ethnic, if you’re going to block Jacklyn you should probably look into the last submission about Taylor Swift by “Christian Persecution Will Come To America Too”
