European mutt

In an effort to not indulge in watching TV shows or playing games, I've occupied some of my time this evening mapping out my cultural heritage.  It turns out that I'm way more English that I thought, and much less German--I had previously thought that both were closer to a quarter, but it turns out that I have quite a bit of pre-American revolution English emigrant ancestors, mostly from my paternal grandfather and maternal grandmother.  Most of these ancestors lived in Massachusetts and Connecticut.

I used to dig around for these numbers.

I don't know. The question mark is for the portion of my ancestors where I couldn't trace a country outside of America. Their names sound European; many likely have English origins.
