My wife, Diane Marie McTiernan, nee Rider's great grandparents are like mine, a mixture of Irish and German but not French. Diane's 8 families and my 8 families are our children's great great grandparents from Ireland, Germany and France, one hundred and fifty years, three to five generations away from their origins in Europe. Our kids would be 50 % Irish, 43 % German and 7 % French. Our children's direct line.
