Im danish, born by danish parents, but the bloodline is of danish, swedish, french and spanish. My dads family has been traced back to Corsica and apparently I have some spanish in my blood because of the spanish waging war on the danes in 17th century.
I think I'm English, Scots-Irish, Welsh, German, Swedish, and probably a little Native American. No idea what else. I use sunscreen and am still freckling like crazy and I can always find my kids at the pool/lake by looking for the whitest of the white kids.
I am not particularly in touch with my roots beyond being a WASP in WASP country. Sadly, anything I try to sing comes out sounding like Bluegrass.
Yay for the pale freckled people!

I've dreamt in my life dreams that have stayed with me ever after, and changed my ideas;
they've gone through and through me, like wine through water, and altered the colour of my mind.

My brother and mom have been obsessed with geneology for 8-10 yrs now, so have traced pretty far back on both sides.
My mom's side has been in the States for a long while - some arrived here over 200 yrs ago. Mostly british and irish ancentry, with some german.
My dad's side came over in the late 1800's/ early 1900's I believe. My Dad is half Norwegian, 1/4 Swedish and 1/4 German. My last name comes from the German side, which isn't strictly germany as we know it today, the ethnicity was more the Prussia/ Poland region, although apparently they lived in germany. ? (yeah, my brother would know the actual specifics)

From what I know, I'm basically a Euro-Mutt, with perhaps a hint of Native American thrown in. I'm definitely part German, Irish, Czech, and English... but it's likely that I've got ancestors from a lot of other ethnicities too. Physically, I look like your standard white guy.
