Other places interest me, not only because of where ancestors come from, but just because it's always good to learn how other people live, their customs etc. I find it fascinating.
You have been able to trace you family tree really far back. I can only go back as far as my grandparents.
Yeah turns out a lot of people in France have black hair. And for my family tree i am very lucky to have it in such detail. Now offcourse if i look good enough their might be some relative that did marry a Spaniard or eastern european person, its all "close" toghter here so anything is possible (going to check it out one of these days)
but those relatives wouldnt make the difference.
As for being interested in other countries and cultures, i got that to, but i think its a different kind of being interested
