What sort of ancestry do you have? Countries, regions, religions, cultures, careers, etc. ?

From that family history do you feel that there are any strong multi-generational influences or even just things passed on to you by your parents, that have guided, impacted or somehow affected your own life?
(Anything - ethics, entrepreneurship, hardship, crisis, persecution, religion, addiction to pasta, forced migrations, big families, small families, love or hatred of this of that. ...)
