On Maternal Grandfather's side Icelandic and Maternal Grandmother's side- German and Swedish. I am a rather diverse mix of ...??????

Among all the countries your ancestors come from, Germany is the only one that I'd regard as central european. All other countries seem very nordic to me....        Just my... humble opinion

To the best of my knowledge my ancestors came from Denmark, Germany, and Ireland
Western european or Northern depending on what part of Germany.
Quoted from Tea Rose
If you can't fit into one of the pre-set categories, you can run SWAMI with a few of the closest choices of ethnicity and then compare.
That is a feeback loop, which is clever.  If you want the best advice from the software, you have to give it the best informaion.  So what comprise the center of Europe?  Switerland?  Bavaria?  Slovenia?  Would this enthnic Europe extend to the Urals?
Quoted from Henriette Bsec
While I know my mums family came from Germany, Norway and maybe Switcherland around 1700 - but I still look at myself as Scandinavian

There is a wide choice of fish .... try the setting and see what you get.
Quoted from Andrea AWsec
My parents may have been born in the US,  but my mom was italian and dad was polish.
Central European sounds best for you.  I don't see the Polish as being very northern.

You could just call be a British mut as I can lay claim to almost anything except Welsh blood.

BTW a decent Viking knows where his sword, mail and horn are, as do I (also my bilingual copy of Beowulf)
