You should put up the Native American tho
What Native American? The unverified 1/1024 or 1/2048?
All I saw was that down below there was documented stuff however much it was, didn’t mean to start something, sorry if I did
Can you put up the Jewish though
You have to point to an ancestor, sight a reason and/or source for your claim.
I heard it in an interview but I’ll do some digging.
But then again because of the Holocaust any records may have been destroyed and most records of Jewish ancestors do tend to get fuzzy if it happened around WWI. So this one may be a dead end.
And Vannater strangely is a name with Italian roots
I believe she has remote ashkenazi Jewish blood, 1/64th
flowersmkay I remember that as well. Don’t remember which interview but it definitely would have gotten mixed up around the holocaust. But usually someone with large amounts of German ancestors does tend to have remote Jewish. And I believe you meant WWII not WWI
It’s as though I have to have a conversation with myself before someone will answer
r/lefttheburneron is my favourite subreddit.
Stop doing this. Compose your thoughts and then post.
And I’m sorry for the annoyance, just trying to figure things out
get it together flowersmkay
you have some good points though, everything does get mixed up because of the holocaust and because she is part German. Then again, 1/64 would easily be an amount that would have nazis questioning them, because that persons grandparent would have been 1/16, which is a good amount. also her grandparent’s grandparent would have been 1/4.
I don’t think 1/64th (which is roughly 1.5%) is really ‘remote’ but it’s definitely a small amount
Schneider is also the name of one of her ancestors, which is German but also ashkenazi
She has some remote documented Native American (Patawomek, Cherokee and Powhatan) ancestors, including Pocahontas
What are the fractions?

Again, I’m not going to read all that just to determine whether Mary-Louise Parker is or is not 1/1024 Native American.
Speaking of Native Americans, can you at least put on Sky Ferreira’s page that her grandfather is Native. Even if you doubt that the people I think are his parents really are, he’s at least related to them, since they share a whole lot of cousins.
that must be the same Pocahontas’ “fictional” daughter’s line we already talked about, with more Native stuff maybe.
But if Native blood is there, even if it’s small shouldn’t it be put up(I.e. distant Native American(Powhatan)
I thought she had French blood. She’s completely Nordic despite her dark hair and eyes. Beautiful woman and she’s aging well
Northern European would be more accurate.
