Peg,
If you know surnames it is possible to research.

Marjorie,
I love the culture, language, food, countryside, music, customs and unexplainable "terroir" of France!

cajun,
Also there are two enormous anonymous paintings depicting Ignatius of Loyola and the death of Saint Francis Xavier “Casa de Ejercicios” (English: House of the (Spiritual) Excercises)which eventually became an art gallery to house the vast collection at the Temple of San Felipe Neri "La Profesa" in Mexico City, and make them available to the public.

so come tour MC someday!!!
The church is considered to be an important transitional work between the more sober or moderate Baroque style of the 17th century and the extremely decorated manifestations of the Baroque of the 18th century in Mexico.

Jesi,

Welcome!

My Dad is O- and is of French ancestry. He is a descendant of the Xavier family (House of Bourbon) from Navarre in 1485...Basque country that was back then both Spain and France. St.Francis Xavier was the brother of Valentine, my Dad's ancestor.
My Dad does have low blood pressure and sort of a large head. He has always been lean but muscular. I think he might be (GT 4) an explorer.

I notice you are in SoCal. Is your ND familiar with Dr. D's work? My ND is in Costa Mesa.


Hi and thank you for the welcome! Wow that is so cool that you know so much history in your family! All the men in my family that are basque are also super lean and muscular. They are also all Adonis type men, it's so unfair! My little brother and I always joke that he got the looks and I got the brains, lol. And my Dad at 52 gets hit on everywhere we go, it's gross. We are Spanish Basque (not sure what area but maybe my grandpa knows).

My ND is in Newport. Is your ND Dr. Kelly McCaan by chance? I think her office is in Costa Mesa. She is awesome as well.

I got my Genotype diet book yesterday in the mail so I'm excited to start reading it and see what I am! I was glancing through it and asked my husband what he thought I was from the three body pictures and he said I was the one in the middle with the six pack, . But I measured my wrist and my thumb overlaps my middle finger over the entire nail bed, so I was happy. .

Jesi,
I am lucky. My Dad's aunt researched their family back to the 15th century! It took her a long time and we are so thankful.
My ND is Dr. Andrea Purcell. Her office is near Newport Blvd. in Costa mesa.

Lola,
I love Mexico and have been to the Pacific "cruise cities" several times. My favorite times were: 1. for my high school graduation , a 2 week stay in Mazatlan via train through the Sonora desert in July!!!!! OMG! That was when it was just the old town and we walked from our playa hotel (near the "divers rock") to the central mercado. I still remember the wonderful food... 2. Next favorite was staying one week in a time share with friends in Nayarit. Pure heaven! I was in Acapulco in the late 80's and flew home via Mexico City. I couldn't believe how crowded and busy and historical. It reminded me a little of Los Angeles.
I have so much to learn about great works of art but so enjoy them!Thank you for the link! You are a thoughtful person.

Jesi,
Just curious if you eat (or used to pre-ER4YT) any Basque food?
There were 2 I especially enjoyed when over there.1. The Gateau Basque with the cream filling and the one with the their popular famous black cherries.2. We loved the Ossau-Iraty sheep milk cheese, too! And of course all the yummy peppers that are sadly avoids for me now. I am hoping Swami gives me sweet red peppers again!!!

Interesting postings!
_______________
An ancient people, or more correctly a “people island,” they have resisted virtually all attempts at assimilation, forced or otherwise. In the Basque language there is no name for “Basque”. There is a name for the language that Basques speak, Euskera and a Basque is simply defined as a Euskaldun, someone who speaks Euskera.

But we would have to go back farther still to get a grip on the Basques. You have to go back to a very cold, dry time without agriculture. The Basques, you see, are sort of living fossils, probably the most direct link we genetically possess to a distinct people that can be traced back to the Pleistocene Age. http://n-equals-one.com/blogs/2010/10/23/islands-humanity/

I'm O rhesus negative - not sure about the Basque heritage though    My Dad's Scottish and my Mum was of German/Irish stock.  Having said that, my MtDNA result came back from National Geo as Haplogroup X - associated with the Reindeer people of northern Siberia / Native American Indians    However, I have a blood disorder (again passed down through female to male lineage) X-linked agammaglobulinemia (XLA) which is somewhat associated with the Basques???

Sorry waffling here.....

Oh, Cajun - I too love Ossau Iraty and Manchego (both sheep’s cheeses and diamonds)!!!!

Hi Cajun!

I only know of a Basque stew (my friend gave me the recipe, she is not Basque, lol). Once I visited a farmer's market where they were selling pastries and I bought this Basque pie that was so delicious...I never went by their booth again. lol. I can't remember what it was called...it might have just been "Basque cream pie".

Jesi,
I am going to look into that stew...its probably yummy like most Basque food!

Yaeli,
As a child, I was intrigued by the movie "Journey to the Center of the Earth". I don't know how close it was to Vernes actual book. Interesting fellow.....
Like I say.....travel is the real education.

I  ate at a basque restaurant years ago in SF.....just delicious. Many courses, served family style, big bowls at the table, salads, soups, all sorts of things, meat courses, I remember a salad dressing that semed to be the oldfashioned "boiled dressing", delish.

Jayneeo,
You just described two such restaurants in Chino Hills, southern CA.....previously one of our states rich dairyland until encroachment ran them off. We used to watch the Basque shepherds tend to their sheep on the lovely rolling green hills many years ago. Sadly, the patriarch (described as French-Basque) of one of these family owned eateries passed and the family closed up. There is just one left.
Pre- ER4YT.....The shepherds bread and soup were a perfect meal to me! MMMMMMM..I can still remember how delicious they were!

Jesi,
Yes, Centro Basco is the one that is still there. Those pictures on the site are ofFfrance and Spain, though...not Chino Hills. Its a nice place but not that picturesque! The restaurant is on a busy street in sort of an industrial area..now...years ago it was dairyland!
My favorite one was named "French Pyrenees". We used to eat there once a month back in the 80's. The food was fresh, seasonal and the "Papa" would go around talking to his patrons. Oh, I can still taste that bread!!!!!

Jesi,
You would probably enjoy the homey atmosphere and the food is good. My husband loves the family style dining and the appetizer plates of thinly sliced beef tongue with sliced tomatoes.
Someone in the owners family is usually there, so if you told them you were Basque I am sure you would receive a special welcome!
It is a good family place.

Both of my daughters are O-, even though I'm an O+ and their father is B+ (none of us know our secretor status yet.)

I don't think they have any Basque ancestors- my father's parents were both born in Poland, and my Mom's grandparents were from Russia and Romania. My ex's parents were both born in NY. I know their last name is of German origin, so somewhere down the line they have German ancestors, but I'm not sure how far down, or what else might be mixed in. I can be sure that all the grandparents were Ashkenazi Jewish and from northern or eastern Europe, but I'm not sure from exactly where or if there's anything else mixed in a few generations back.
