Mostly German and English, but I also have a little bit of Irish, Austrian, Danish, Swedish, and just about anything else from Western Europe except for Spanish (although I do speak it), Portuguese, and Slavic.

Canadian. Canadian. Canadian. I get really tired when people say,"no, really, what is your background?"

Does it matter that my great-grandfather was born somewhere in Michigan, and that his father came from Wales? Or that my mother's mother's mother came from Scotland, and that her father was German?

We need to have less hyphenated Americans and Canadians.

Italian (100%) - both parents from the region of Sicily

(last names, however, point to Northern Italian ancestry for Dad and Sicilian background for Mom)

People are always asking me what I am other

than Slovakian.... Unlike most peple here in

the USA I only know that all of my ancestors

as far back as any of my living relatives know

or can tell were born in Slovakia. If anything

my dad's family is more German looking and

my mom's family is more Eastern European.

If people insist on a second nationality I say

German since it's plausable for any side of

my family.

BTW: Thanks for including Slovakian in the list. :)

Germans are a riot...they can be so direct and brusque. Travelling on Lufthansa will confirm that - don't mess with the flight crew!

Canadian.  Canadian.  Canadian.  I get really tired when people say,"no, really, what is your background?"

  Does it matter that my great-grandfather was born somewhere in Michigan, and that his father came from Wales?  Or that my mother's mother's mother came from Scotland, and that her father was German?

  We need to have less hyphenated Americans and Canadians.

:blink: i knew somebody would say soemthing like that....i simply asked where your familys country of origin is...thats all. Saying your roots are Finnish (example), does not make you any less of a canadian.

OK. Ready?

1/4 Polish

1/4 Ukranian

1/4 Gypsy (Swiss, German and Scottish mix)

1/4 French/Irish (French name 'Madle' emigrated to Ireland, became 'Madill', my last name)

So what did I vote? Irish/English, because that's essentially where my last name comes from.

p.s. The Gypsy side was interesting to investigate - the last name was Beam, taken from the Swiss Boheme, or Bohemian, literally meaning Gypsy. Jim Beam (the bourbon) was actually my 3xGreat Grandfater. The Beams I came from emigrated to Kentucky and kept travelling (Gypsies travelling, what a shocker)... stopping in Pennsylvania briefly then going to Ontario.

Why did you cluster Chinese and Japanese together?

B/C theyre located closely together. along with Portugal and Spain. :rolleyes: and both of them have alot of people here in the united states and needed to keep the pool choices down to 20.

Anch'io ;)

Well, while I'm mainly Sicilian, there's a small part of me that originates from Bari (towards the top of the heel of the boot).

That'll be like making the poll "What's your favorite car company?" and offering "GM/Toyota", "Ford/Honda", "Chrysler/Kia", and "BMW/Suzuki" as the choices.
