    I am pretty sure her paternal grandmother’s name was Odette Sartori Simonetti and was Swiss-Italian

    The Peruvian marriage record clearly says “natural Ginebra de nacionalidad suiza” (born in Geneva, of Swiss nationality) while her husband José Justman Lamisorsky was born in Asuncion, Paraguay, and was “de nacionalidad argentina”

    it looks like an editing occured. I dont remember her paternal grandfather being listed as Jewish

    Sartori and Simonetti must the correct Italian great-grandparents surnames (certainly from North Italy).

    Even though her parents are from south-america she doesn’t LOOK like she has any Native-American or black-african input/admixture. But the French, Italian, & Spanish sounds about right. Looks like a mix between Catherine Zeta-Jones & Blanca Padilla in this picture.

    Lol British? Riiiiiight. Someone said she looks like Catherine Zeta Jones, for years people have been trying to find out if she has any Spanish or Italian in her, that tells you that her look isn’t British. Odette is a beauty, a mix of French, Italian & Spanish with some native, and you have a species of human that can’t be found in that overpopulated little island
