What can you infer about my ancestry given the color of my beard?

Asked by pleiades (6538 points ) January 2nd, 2013

My beard seems to be 60% black 25% ginger & 15% blonde. Is there a certain group of ethnic ancestry I probably have? (I’m having trouble wording this question)

That’s similar to what mine was when I was in my 20s. I am half Scottish (my dad was a ginger) and half Mexican.

I have blue eyes. When we studied Mendel and genetic traits in middle school, I asked my mom where the blue eyes came from. She said when she was little there were “rumors of an Austrian”.

So my guess is a mix of Mediterranean/Latino on one side, and Celtic/Northern European on the other.

Not a lot. You have Viking ancestry? There is a ranga in your past?

Just your beard color isn’t enough to guess. Could be Irish, Jewish, Polish, parts of Asia, a combination or none of those.

Your mostly Mexican, with a bit of German and some Scots.
