Does anybody know stats on ethnical composition of Americans besides German/English/Irish-Scottish figures?

Is it true there are about 20 million Italo-Americans?

There is actually quite a few Russians, Ross (that's ethnic Russians, not Jews), take a look at the Congress of Russian Americans Website (http://www.russian-americans.org). Most are concentrated on the West Coast; for example about 30% of the population of Sacramento, California is of Slavic origin.

That's all very refreshing guys, still could anybody post a link to the stats?

Such as
- German-American - X
- British-American - Y
- Irish-American - Z
- Italo-american - ...

I can;t believe you Americans don't have it - you're obsessed with!

I was wondering, why Americans so like to do genealogical searches of their roots... not because they're that interested, I figured out, but because they're afraid to find a Nigro or Amerind in the woodstock :-) Btw, how's about this stats? How many Americans are partially Amerind, besides Presley and Clinton?

I found some real figures in the book March of the Titans.

"GERMAN ORIGIN AMERICANS ARE THE LARGEST WHITE GROUP

According to the 1990 census, the largest White group, about 58 million Americans, was partly or solely of German ancestry. Irish ancestry was reported by 38.7 million Americans, and English ancestry by another 32.7 million."

The majority who claim Irish ancestry are actually Scotch_Irish; albeit, most people claim Irish ancestry when they do not know their ancestry since there is a certain amount of romanticism about being Irish or Native American, the little people and all.

In much of the South this may be true; it is hardly the case in Boston and New York.

I'm not so sure. Most Ulster-Scots or what they call Scotch-Irish are very anti-Catholic and usually make a distinction between themselves and the Irish. If Ulster-Scots are claiming to be Irish because it is fashionable it must be a fairly new phenomenon or perhaps just out of ignorance.

I already have posted a link in the longue http://www.euroamericans.net/ , but since the American government is uncaring to us, they only do it every 10 years :( .
