I'm not sure how far back we go as far as generations but my great, great, great (etc.) grandmother was the first white lady to set foot on Tasmanian soil (and had the first white baby in Tasmania too) so you can't get much more Aussie than my family... now my kids are 1/2 chinese so I kinda messed up the flow, but whatever. ;)

Great thread its so interesting to hear about peoples history as well as there country of origin.
I forgot to put that although I am British, born in Stockton on tees Teesside, my family originate from the Carribean, my great great grandfather was born in Jamaica and came over to Hartlepool in England in 1865 to work in the smelting industry, he was a black man in a very white world and joined the salvation army, within the protective arm of this religion he married a lass from Yorkshire and having married white ever since their is not much outward sign of black blood, however we all have to let our children know in case they have a brown baby and wonder where the hell that came from :rofl: my Dads sister and two of her children have afro hair and dark complexions, they are the only family to show signs of our heritage of which I am very proud and shout from the roof tops.
