Taylor Swift is an American singer, songwriter, and actress.

Taylor is the daughter of Andrea and Scott Swift. Her brother is actor Austin Swift.

Taylor is descended from a number of German immigrants to the United States, in the 1800s and earlier. Some of her ancestral lines also trace back to Colonial America of the 1600s, and to English immigrants of that time period. Aside from other German and English lines, her ancestry includes Scottish, Irish, Scots-Irish/Northern Irish, Welsh, 1/16th Italian, and distant roots in France, Sweden, The Netherlands, and Belgium, with Walloon ancestors.

Taylor’s Swift lines traces to a William Swift, who was born, c. 1619, in Bocking, Essex, England.

Taylor’s paternal grandfather was Lt. Col. Archie Dean Swift, Jr. (the son of Archie Dean Swift and Bernice Maude Thompson). Taylor’s grandfather Archie was born in Pennsylvania. Taylor’s great-grandfather Archie was the son of Charles Julius/James Judson Fox Swift and Josephine Reno; the Reno line originates with French ancestry. Bernice was the daughter of Wilbur Willard/Willie Thompson and Barbara Maria Jane Kingsley.

Taylor’s paternal grandmother was Rose Baldi Douglas (the daughter of Charles Gwynn Douglas and Louise Eurindine Baldi). Rose was born in Pennsylvania. Charles was the son of Charles Douglass and Mary Jane Gwynn. Louise was the daughter of Charles Carmine Antonio “C. C. A.” Baldi, an Italian man, born in Castelnuovo Cilento, Province of Salerno, Campania, Italy, and of his wife, Louisa/Louise Eurindine Sobernheimer, who was born in Pennsylvania, to German parents, Frederick Sobernheimer and Catherine Louise Hammel. Thus, Taylor Swift is of 1/16th Italian ancestry. C. C. A. Baldi was a community leader, who organized a bank and owned a daily Italian-language newspaper, among other businesses.

Taylor’s maternal grandfather was Robert Bruce Finlay (the son of Lancelot George “Lance” Finlay and Eleanor A. “Ella” Mayer/Meyer). Robert was born in Ohio. Lancelot was born in Southampton, England, to a Scottish-born father, George Finlay, and to an Irish-born mother, Emma Lynch. Eleanor was the daughter of German parents, Julius Mayer, from Bavaria, and Delia Gunther.

Taylor’s maternal grandmother was Marjorie Moehlenkamp (the daughter of Elmer Heinrich/Henry Moehlenkamp and Cora Lee Morrow). Marjorie was born in Tennessee. Elmer was the son of Henry Johann/John Moehlenkamp and Emma Anna Eterina Bruns, who were of German descent. Cora was the daughter of Sanford Hewitt Morrow and Sallie Wells Faulkner.

“The Silence Breakers” won Time Magazine’s Person of the Year for 2017, women speaking out about sexual harassment/abuse. Taylor was one of six persons chosen to represent that title on the magazine’s cover, along with Isabel Pascual, Adama Iwu, Ashley Judd, Susan Fowler, and a woman who chose to remain anonymous.

Taylor is a first cousin, once removed, of Charles Douglas III, who was a Member of the U.S. House of Representatives from New Hampshire, from 1989 to 1991. She is also a great-great-niece of politicians Charles Baldi, Jr. and Joseph Baldi.

    THE ONLY PEOPLE THAT SAY OR WANT TO BELIEVE THAT ITALIANS AREN’T WHITE ARE ENVY PEOPLE .

    WHAT HAPPENED IS THAT, 80 % OF WHAT EVERYBODY CALL “ITALIANS” AROUND THE WORLD ARE FROM SICILY AND OTHER SOUTHERN ITALIAN REGIONS. SICILY IS AN ISLAND LIKE HAWAII IN AMERICA THAT BECAME PART OF ITALY IN 1861. SICILIANS ANS SOUTHERN ITALIANS ARE VERY DIFFERENT FROM NORTHERS ITALIANS

    SINCE IN THE PAST THE MAJORITIE OF “ITALIANS” WERE COMING FROM THE SOUTH, THEY CREATED A BIG CONFUSION AROUND THE WORLD IN REGARD ITALIANS. AND NOW THAT INTERNET IS AVAILABLE ANYBODY CAN UNDERSTAND THE TRUTH EVEN IF THEY ARE NOT ABLE TO TRAVEL IN ITALY
    BUT SOME ENVY PEOPLE ARE TRYING TO GET ADVANTAGE OF THIS OLD AND FAKE LEGEND ABOUT ITALIANS SINCE THEY KNOW THAT NOT TOO MANY PEOPLE USE THE INTERNET FOR RESEARCH HISTORY, ANTHROPOLOGY OR ANYTHING IN REGARD OTHER COUNTRIES.
