  1. Just wondering of people's background :evil: ! BTW, are North Americans the only one that do/are able to consider themselves of a different nationality than the country their born :suspiciou?

    I'm 75% Irish (Mallow in Country Cork)
    12.5% Italian
    12.5% English (or would it be called British ;) )

    I'm a dual citizen between the USA and the Netherlands.

    I'm 50% Dutch and 50% American, well italian actually because people from the USA aren't really from the USA.

    Glad to see we're all mature enough to keep this thread from getting out of hand - it has potential to do so. That being said I am:

    50% African American
    25% Filipino
    25% Chinese

    I am an American by birth and 100% Portuguese by heritage (all four of my grandparents immigrated from Portugal to the USA just before WWI.) When people in the U.S. ask me what I am, I say Portuguese. However, if I am asked while on travel outside of the US, I say American.

    :D Same here. I would not consider myself Irish if I went to Ireland; just American ;). It's weird that a geneologist was interested in my family and did a huge report on it.....came here on September 27, 1857 (almost 150 years :grinthumb )!

    anthropologists would disagree with you on this. Not all agree.

    We supposibly came from 1...yes 1 group of people that at one point had a population of only 10,000....and they migrated and as they did this, reproduced and settled. At least thats' what was on the History Channel :D!

    I am 100% purebred Scotsman, and proud. And if any of you have a problem with that then bring it on.

    Other than black pudding, I have no problem with Scots. And I do like Haggis.

    Well, I'm Australian born and bred, my ancestors came here as free settlers quite a few generations ago (both sides of the family) and are mostly from Germany and Britain. But there's some Czech and Welsh in there as well.

    So I'm...
    45% German
    45% British
    5% Welsh
    5% Czech

    During my one visit to Sweden many years ago, I do recall the Swedes mentioning that their equivalent of the USA Blonde (or Polish) jokes were Norwegian-based. Or was it something to do with Vikings, etc.?
