His grandmother, I thought. Consider

Again, though, what's a Jew?

If my great-great-great maternal grandmother was a Jew, am I? Who says? Drinking Beverage

Is your mother a Jew? I don't think Jews go chasing turtles all the way down.

Say some. But not all.

Her too. Well, one of them was.

See link.

As with the various sub-divisions of christianity, it's all as clear as saline driplets on Mars.

Suffice to say, to steal a line from others ... like Harris, Hitchens and Fry, "I'm Jewish on the side that counts".

If my great-great-great grandma was Jewish, then so was her daughter (my great-great grandma), and so was her daughter (my great grandma), and so was her daughter (my ma). So it's turtles all the way down the female line. And every son they bore was also Jewish.

But who says so? If I had a Viking ancestor, am I a Viking? Consider

I knew this guy who was convinced he was of viking ancestor because he was German... and Vikings or old north Germans that eventually became Vikings spawned from the Germanic areas about a few thousands of years ago. My friend tried to inform him that isn't how genealogy works but it didn't matter.

He believed he was a viking to the point he got some tattoo on his arm of some Rune symbol. So yes, by his logic you are a Viking.

I for one, am an Italian Farmer because that's as far as I know of my lineage going.

That's interesting.

What fertilizer do you use and what time of year do you harvest them?
