Randy’s challenge for this evening is as follows:
List your 16 great-grandparents in pedigree chart order. List their birth and death years and places.
Figure out the dominant ethnicity or nationality of each of them.
Calculate your ancestral ethnicity or nationality by adding them up for the 16 - 6.25% for each (obviously, this is approximate).
If you don't know all 16 of your great-grandparents, then do it for the last full generation you have.

I have 10 German, 4 Irish, 1 Canadian, and 1 French. Further generations on Sarah MULLIGAN would also have English. But according to the way Randy asked us to figure this, I am: 63% German, 25% Irish, 6% Canadian, and 6% French.
