What Ethnicity Are You?

Mon Sep 06, 2004 5:28 pm

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?

I am 100% Swedish, as far as I know.

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.

I'm going to be the nancy-boy and point out that the word ethnicity is being used wrongly here. Irish, Scottish, American and Swede to name just a few are NOT ethnicites but are nationalities - completely different.

To answer the question correctly I am Xhosa and Polynesian.

Ethnicity is Caucasian.

Nationality a mix of German, French, Czech, Bohemian. Mom's family is French, having emigrated from Rouen, France to Wisconsin via Canada. Dad's family is German/Czech, with his respective parents being from near Kluesserath and somewhere in western Czech.

My wife is Scotch-Irish with some Cherokee. Her lineage is roughed out a little bit, but somewhat muddled as there are some Welsh names, Scottish names and it's a bit confusing.

Ironically, one of our family members just began doing major genealogy work and has gone over to the Czech Republic and Bohemia for research on my Dad's side.

My Mom's side was pretty well researched and clear cut for some time, and I can trace my ancestors to 1600s France.

For us Americans, we're all mutts in a way, and it just humbles me to see the birthplace of one of my ancestors being "Prussia" and the birthplace of one of his sons "Wisconsin." One can only imagine the challenges these early immigrants faced, but my respect for them is eternal.

I would be 100% Indian (East Indian that is), and proud to be born and raised in this country and experiencing both cultures. Although as an Ethnic group, that would make me Caucasian.



I'm Mexican, but ethnically I'm 100% Spanish blood (as in Spain, not what in the US you call "Latino").

That's interesting JoseMEX because the "latino" term is pushed mostly by a group of Mexicans that find being called Mexican is derrogatory. But that is a different matter  Smile.

Skyhawk,
I would think that your husband's g-g-grand father did what all healthy sailors did at that time (1840?) when they were very very far away from home...

Could you trace the ship's itinerary ? might be a few more in other ports...

NonRevKing.....truly good LOVL

In my case, the results of some 10 years of field research stops at Anno 1520 due to lack of earlier records. Research also explains clearly the origin our family name, it was the name of a geographical spot where my ancestor was a "bar" owner...it probably explains more...
Absolutely no mix anywhere, at least officially.

German... Which means that "100% pure" is basically out of the question anyway.  Wink/being sarcastic
Germans are usually a mixture of many european tribes.

In my family, there are at least frisian (north sea coast), huguenot (formerly french) and (by modern geography) polish ancestors...

Message too short
The message you were about to post is too short and probably not of any higher value to the topic at hand. You should think long and hard before posting a message in this forum and make it detailed and a valuable addition to the topic discussed.

Avoid posting "Me Too" messages. These are messages that are posted by people who agree to a point being discussed and post a one liner, "me too!", "Good post Jim!", "I disagree" or similar message. This takes up time as readers must sort through these messages which have no real value to the group at large. Any message containing nothing more than a line or two of text is probably not worth posting.

If you have an opinion on a topic, you should in detail express why you have the opinion and what made you come to that conclusion.

Your post should be relevant to the topic discussed.

Most of them aren't. Just because your parents or other ancestor is from Ireland doesn't make you Irish ... just ask an Irishman.

Other immigrant countries don't do the same thing, always thought it's kind of strange.

As far as I know I have 50% italian blood. The other 50% must be a mixture of amerindian and spanish blood, but I have no idea in which proportion.


Pacificjourney: I don't think they need to feel they're from somewhere else, and it's not only the americans. Maybe you are purely japanese, but americans, as chileans, cubans and brazilians, among others come from "new" countries, that were built by mixing the local indigenous populations and inmigrants, so you are not "purely" american or guatemalan. It's as simple as that. And look, even europeans here are a mix.
