Well, the topic pretty much says it, what ethnicity are you?

I guess I'll go first here it goes:
Im the following:
Colombian
Italian (Siciliano)
English
French
Czech
Yugoslavian
Indian (native american)
Irish
Scottish

I guess you could say I am a little bit of everything. I look most like the top 2, but and a bit French, but thats me. What are you guys (and girls)?

I'm an ethnic Malay (not to be confused with 'Malaysian' which is a nationality rather than ethnicity). I also have Thai and Achenese (North Sumatra) blood in me. Quite boring really, can hardly compete with Copa  Big grin Hmm I thought you are Lebanese?

But that doesn't stop people from asking: "Where are you from?", "What country do you come from?"

Most of them think I'm from somewhere around the Mediterranean Sea..

Me-Scot, English, Irish, Cherokee Indian. My son-Scot, English, Irish, Cherokee Indian, German Danish. My husband, German-Danish. His great great grandfather was a German sea captain that was lost in the Gulf of Mexico and a few years ago he met a man from Jamaica that has the same last name. He was curious as a distinctly German name would be unusual in Jamaica. The man told him that his great great grandfather was a German sea captain that was lost in the Gulf of Mexico. So what do you think the chances are of meeting a man with the same last name and same family history from two very different places?

I'm German and English. Have a very Anglo surname, but the majority of my family are Pennsylvania Dutch (Germans) which immigrated here in the 1700's. We still have family ties to Germany though, distant relatives.

Scots by culture, a couple of generations out of Tain and Invergordon. Also some English, Norwegian and maybe Irish.

Irish? My mother's father had flaming red hair, played the fiddle and sang tenor, including a number of songs his wife would not let him sing in front of the children. He earned his living with a horse-drawn freight wagon and drank a fair bit of his take-home pay. He was kicked to death by a horse, leaving a widow with two young children and without a penny, and if all that isn't Irish I don't know what!

My wife is of the French, Spanish, Irish, and Scots melting pot and even though she was from a different part of the country from my family, it turns out we are related no more than three generations back.
