112.5% in total. Quite impressive.
Thank you Madman for informing us of my mathematical mistakes. The Ashkeanzi Jewish and African-American are accurate I think the other two percentages need to be looked at.
12.5% English/Irish I believe.
To add to what Bablah originally said, Leonard Williams is at least 1/4 Ashkenazi Jewish. Hedi Robin Witsotsky (the maternal grandmother) was the daughter of Max and Helyn Bernice Levine. Max was the son of Jack Wisotsky and Rissel Rae Schwartz. Both Jack and Rissel were Ukrainian Jews. Helyn’s parents were Philip Levine and Mollie Epstein. Philip and Mollie were Belarusian Jews.
Maternal grandfather: David George Russek (1948-1989) son of Simon E. Russek and Melva Elizabeth Seeds. Additional information

Is this woman his mother?
Russek is Polish.
You could have just googled ”Leonard Williams mother”. I don’t know why you’d post her arrest record.
Leonard’s maternal grandmother was Heidi Robin Wisotsky (the daughter of Max Wisotsky and Helyn Bernice Levine). Heidi was born in California. Max was the son of Jack Wisotsky and Rae Schwartz Helyn was the daughter of Phillip Levine and Mollie Epstein.
I doubt his mother is anything other than Ashkenazi Jewish.
Because there’s nothing about her, except for the mugshot and her Twitter account.
It seems Russek can be Ashkenazi Jewish too, yes.
I thought his maternal grandmother might be Witosky from my research.
Well, you should have wrote “African-American, other”
How many AA you find named Russek?
I thought it was the wrong grandmother and I couldn’t find the origin of the name Russek. Should of known if was Polish or that region. I assumed regular English surname… sorry
How can Russek be English: do you have an inferiority complex towards the English? Because sometimes you use to overrate the English ancestry when you submit profiles.
1. I am Irish not English, I have no obsession with the English culture. 2. the reason I assumed British and/or Irish is because that’s the type of surnames most African Americans tend to have.3. which profiles? with celebs with mainly English ancestry I usually add the remote German, Irish, Scottish, etc ancestry?
I don’t remember his name, but it was a politician who turned out to have a lot of German ancestry while you submitted him as “English, possibly other” (he also did not look English at all).
