If wizards say they have been pure blood for centuries, somewhere down the line their ancestors were muggles? If this is the case then Hermione and Lily really are TRUE pure bloods. Can anyone correct me or have something to say about this theory? 20:53, 27 April 2009 (UTC)

No. Pure blood refers to the amount of magic. True pure bloods are those who have had magic in their families since the dawn of time. Remember, all muggle-born witches and wizards were descended from squibs who are descended from a witch or wizard. ShirleyA 05:18, 28 April 2009 (UTC)
