Personal Quote:

Alison's mother is from an Ashkenazi Jewish family. Alison's paternal grandfather had Dutch, English, German, and Norwegian ancestry, and Alison's paternal grandmother was originally from Scotland. Alison's patrilineal ancestry can be traced back to Reyer Schermerhorn, who was born c. 1541, in the town of Schermerhorn, in Waterland, Noord Holland (the Netherlands). See more »
