    His great-grandparents marriage record:

    The 1920 census says that Dorothy’s father was Irish (the 1910 and 1930 says he was from Louisiana):

    On the 1900 census Joseph was living with his siblings and mother (no father):

    There are many records of a Joseph A. Bloom that was a soldier in Louisiana in the American Civil War (maybe he is Joseph’s father):

    “Bloom” is almost exclusively a Jewish surname, and he is said to have Israeli roots. But I don’t know if this Joseph is Kiko’s ancestor and/or if he was white or not.
