To start, I am a "mutt." I'm approximately 60% Polish with the rest being English, Danish, French, German, Sicilian, Irish, and possibly Dutch.
However, according to Ellis Island, one of my ancestors came from "Sluchaj, Russia." I understand that Russia had power over a portion of Poland for quite some time, so I'm wondering if that leads to the possibility of me being Russian via some interbreeding. I'm absolutely fascinated by the Russian culture and by their history (and I only date boys born in Russia, lol), so I'd love to find out if I have some Russian blood.
Boleslaw Szczyglinski Sluchaj, Russia 1906 42
That is the proper spelling of my last name prior to it being changed in America to Seyglinski.
Here are a couple of pictures of me.. I know I've posted on another thread regarding my Polish features, but do I have anything that could be considered a Russian feature? I apologize for the photos... typical myspace/facebook shots, haha. These were back when I had blonde hair.. I'm a light brunette now.
A semi-profile shot with my mare that I recently sold. :/
Another profile shot, but I'll post this as a link since I'm kissing my ex boyfriend in it. My nose is scrunched up, but otherwise it's my normal profile. i49.tinypic.com/orv4ol.png
