Hi everyone, for all that i know of i'm 100% chinese because both my parents are chinese and there are no close blood relatives of any other race.
Ive been told many, many times that my last name is REALLY rare and i have never met another 'ZU' in my life apart from those that are family.
My dad was born and brought up in the province of "XIN JIANG" in the very northern part of China.
I hear that the native people that live there speak "weiga"? and are not/look 100% pure chinese blood.
My dads dad died before i was born, and i know very little about him. He was tall, and had chinese features but had big eyes and a tall nose, just like me. I have two quarter russian cousins, but not blood related on the russian part on my dads side.
Im just wondering if i have any other race in my blood, perhaps arab, russian or anything else maybe native minority groups in Xin Jiang?
ALSO ANYONE WITH THE SAME EXACT LAST NAME PLEASE DONT HESITATE TO CONTACT.
Thankyou, Alison Zu.
