Dig deep and you'll also find some Indian.
But all in all, I'm proud to say I am more American than anything else.

Dad's side - American / American

After that, it gets more spicey.
Dad's side - German, Czech, just a smallest smidge of Irish
Mom's side - Russian, German, Italian, Austrian

Father: Born Here, 50% Italian, 50% Greek
That makes me 75% Italian, 25% Greek, American Citizen (I actually by default Italian law, am a dual citizen due to my mother)

I am American, born in the state of Texas.
Ethnic background that I know of:
Mom's Side - German, English, Cherokee (tiny amount), and rumor of some Russian
Dad's Side - Scottish, Irish, I think some English
Earliest family known to migrate to U.S. - My Dad's side has ancestors that have been here since the Revolutionary War (1700's).
Latest family known to migrate to U.S. - My Mother's Father's parents migrated from Germany. My Mother's Father was born in the U.S. in 1918, so his parents migrated some time before then...

On mom's side....Russian and Romanian
On dad's side.....I am first generation from England. Working on a family tree with a cousin in London and actually just got my great grandparents marriage certificate from 1903. Very cool. Still trying to see where they were from if not London. Also learned my 2 great/great grandfathers names

Like many of you, I am proud to say I am American! Can't claim much else after 3 generations of family being here.
Mom - 100% German
Dad - 50% Irish / 50% Dutch
Me - Western European mutt that loves German food, Irish beer, and the Dutch laid back way of life (and a few other aspects ). I would say they all came together to make a fine Chicago born American if I may say so myself, lol!

Mom: German, German
Dad: German, either German, Austria, or Bohemian
I say at least 75 % german if not more. fact is the unsure side came over from Austria to Baltimore in the early 1900's
A couple people have commented after they learned I was German that I look Swedish, or Danish.
so nothing is for sure but from family ancestors and asking my grand parents where I am from I just basically say Germanic backround

I am White and Chinese.
Mom lived in China and all her family did for a very long time.
Dad is just white mix of whatever. Never really asked not that I think he is sure anyway.

My father's side can be traced back to Austria. They have been over here for since the late 1700s though.
My mother's side is French. They were Acadians who settled in Louisiana in the mid 1700s and became known as Cajuns.
I think I have a little Cherokee in me as well. Like 1/16 or something like that.
So basically I'm American through and through.
