Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question: If one is raised as an Ashkenazi, and his family has been practicing ashkenazi customs for at least 4 generations does he continue to do so if he finds out that he is really of sephardic decent? Thank you.
Answer:

You should continue following the customs your father and grandfather observed. The essence of a Minhag is continuing one’s parent’s practices; as no one can know with certainty what was the “original” Minhag.
