    On my mother's side, I am Irish. However, the one side of that lineage had emigrated to England after the Famine and were there for a generation or two before coming to the States (could have some English in there). My people were from County Laois. On my father's side, I am 25% Italian (I have the goofy, vowel-ended last name to prove it) and 25% all mixed up. My paternal grandmother's maiden name is Stevenson, and she hails from Petersburg, VA. Apparently, that side of the family has been in the States since the 18th Century, and they were Scottish. There is also a female Cherokee ancestor there, as well. I identify mostly as Irish-American, but I definitely have my Italian-American attributes. I also am very into early American history, and I kinda like that I had people here in colonial times. I am American first and foremost.

    1/2 German, 1/4 Finnish, 1/4 Polish-Jewish and other various things. Those are the ones I'm sure about. I also have been told I have a tiny bit of Swedish and Mediterranean descent, but I think they cancel each other out.
    I don't wanna!

    The impact depends on the heritage and/or how you look, I'd imagine. If think if you look 'white' and speak 'American' it's just a curiosity, really. It's PC to talk about, I think, unless you start saying overtly racist stuff.

    I feel a vague affinity for some of the home countries that I know about. For instance AFAIK, most of my ancestors are Anglo/Celtic, so given the chance I'd like to visit the UK.

    To the OP:
    English
    Scots Irish
    Welsh
    Swedish
    German
    and unknown
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    Typical American mutt, as far as I know I'm:

    15/32 Scottish
    1/4 Irish
    1/4 German
    1/32 Cherokee
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    I think Swedish, Irish, and German. Boring.
