That I know of (actually, my grandmother has an entire book on her family tree, going back hundreds of years):

My grandfather came from Portugal and my grandmother's family came to Brazil with the royal family. Both on my paternal side. My grandmother on my maternal side came from Spain. My great grandfather came from Germany. My great grandmother family has settled here for longer, and I don't know much about her.

It's interesting to note that in the recorded parts of my family tree, people of 'lower' ethnicities (at the time) were left out.

My family is actually quite diverse.

I am a New Zealander as is my son.
But my ethnic make up is from France, England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales and going way back to Scandinavia. That is on both sides. My son has that side as well.
My son's father is English and the only other ethnicity I know of is Ghanian (West Africa).
