      I'm what some people would call a mutt lol I have 6 different ethnic backgrounds. I'm Peruvian, Bolivian, Spanish, Italian, English, and of course, North American (both Canada and the states). My dad and his family were born in Peru. My mom was born in Bolivia(but moved to Peru). My maternal grandparents were born in Spain and my maternal grandmother's parents: mother was from England, father was from Italy. Out of seven kids, my sister and I were born in the states (Cali), but the rest of my siblings were born in Peru.

       

      Plenty of ethnic background to share =]

            My family is Jamaican by birth and descent (including my sister and I). On my mother's side, we have Indian (from India) and Scottish. My father's side has been virtually unchanged since the Africans were brought to Jamaica. The oral history says they're from Nigeria and Ghana.

                  My mother is from Jamaican and my dad is from Cleveland by way of St. Louis.  I was born and raised in Cleveland.  My fiance is Guyanese and we both have lots of West Indian relatives.  I'm so happy to be marrying at the Riu Montego Bay so my 91 year old great-grandfather can make the trip from Westmoreland (Jamaica). It will also feel good to be in my mom's hometown since she passed away and won't be able to see me on my special day.  She'll be there in spirit, I'm sure.
