Post Please, can someone guess my ancestry by looking at my face?

I'm new to this whole ethnicities thing. I am doing some background research on my ancestry. I traced them (through extensive research done by family member, church registries, and the like) to the following places in Spain and Ireland:
-Burgos
-Navarra
-Andalucia
-Dublin



Also, my bodytype is "big": I am 1.76 and I have big muscles, broad shoulders, thick neck, but I also have a very feminine shape (a "handfull", small waist, larger hips). For those IQ obsessed people, mine's a 132 being math my strongest area.

I'd place you somewhere in Bulgaria or Romania.. Some place with gypsys, not to say you are a gypsy. But something seems 'off' for me.

Then again I probably don't know what I'm talking about.

Yes and no.

Yes-I posted the picture so it can be seen and "analyzed" since it seems y'all know more about this than me.

No-I'm also discussing other subjects of interest in here, especially in the language section because I am a polyglot (it seems the language section is my new home )

My great grandparents (from my dad's side) spoke that language. AS for my mom's side, her dad's side is Irish/Corsican.

I had been asked if I'm from central/eastern Europe countries all the time, which I'm not because I was born in US.

Well, I guess I am more instructed in this subject.

Thanks for all your help.

Have a nice day.

Maybe...I guess I might have been a man, but it seems the penis got cut off or something when I was born.

Spain was settled by the Iberians a few thousand years ago; they gave their name to the peninsula that Spain is located on, the Iberian Peninsula:



The Iberians originated along the Black Sea, in a region that was once part of Scythia, which stretched from the Cacassus to the Ukraine in Eastern Europe. Here is a map showing the location of ancient Iberia:

Wow!!!!


I didn't know about the origin of the nickname "Peninsula Iberica". This is what I needed; no wonder I always get asked if I'm from that area.

There is always the consideration of camera lens distortion, but it does appear that you have a wide Zygomatic, a trait I have noticed in Eastern European woman.
