    I'm at least 95% English I think and I think atleast 90% of me is from East Anglia. There are possibly little bits of French, maybe a titchy tiny bit of African, and then just Norman and really far back bits like that. Yeh, I'm dull.

    From personal observation:
    1. I'd probably have more knowledge of my family tree if I was English
    2. I'd be more popular yet dumber if I was Irish
    3. I'd be uglier if I was part native american or French
    4. I'd be prettier if I was more Swedish or Norwegian
    5. My dad's side wouldn't be almost exclusively made up of scientists and engineers if he wasn't German/Jewish
    6. I would be more outgoing and upbeat if I was less Finnish
    7. I would be shorter and fatter if I was Mexican, but I wouldn't glow in the dark

    Do you feel an affinity for the home country(s) even if you have never been to them? Or does it not really matter because you are foremost an American?
    I'm curious about the countries my ancestors came from, but I wouldn't say I have an affinity.
    Does how long ago your forefathers emigrated make a difference? Also, is it considered a PC or even important thing to talk about? I'd be curious to know.
    I don't know.
    I don't wanna!

    To the OP:
    Mostly English
    German
    Scandinavian


    No, it doesn't really impact my life. It only explains why I'm highly likely to get skin cancer, why my nose is shaped the way it is, and why I'm as white as a shut-in regardless of how much sun I get.

    I dunno. I might be a little more proud if I actually lived in the UK or Germany or whatever.

    A little bit. Mostly because I know a specific location of where one family line has come from and I would like to visit it. Otherwise, my affinity is based off of entirely different reasons. As for feeling like an American foremost. I don't. I never really have identified much with this country, nor been very proud of it.

    No and no.

    My mother's parents were both Acadians who originated in France and came over to Nova Scotia in 1604 and following.

    My father's parents were born of French Canadian ancestry. There's some First Nation in there, too, I believe.


    That makes me pretty much French.
    I spoke French before I spoke English.
    I can sing in French, too.
    It's a big part of my heritage.

    100% German. My parents came over on the boat, but I was born in the USA.
