    I though you said you were part French Huguenot, anyway I think it is great you are so proud of your Dutch heritage.

    being decended from nobility, I have several nationalitys running through my blood, but only one race!

    I don't beleive that one white nation is superrior to another. our diferances are cultural, not racial.

    I am part Norwegian,Sweedish,English, Danish,German,Norman,Irish.I would say a mix like that is probably more common where i come from then in europe.

    I am mostly frisian. Some part of my ancestry was coming out of Palatine to go the US. But in 1804 there was sea blockade by the brits to weaken Napoleon and so they couldn't go. They settled in Friesland then and mixed with the locals. I am not 100 % pure Frisian but close enough for me to be proud of that.

    In Friesland is actually a small village called Pfalzdorf. Our Hof and the family still sits on it.

    The subject of ancestry came up at this one church gathering. I think I broke the heart of this little old lady from Grand Rapids, Michigan (all Dutch up there). She said I was Dutch (my last name begins with "Van"). I dismissed it as being over 350 years ago. She got visibly upset. I'm not dismissing any of my ancestors. My Dad's family would always scream that they have "been here forever" when anyone would try to attach an ethnic label. *Hint* when families like mine say that we "have been here forever" we mean "here before the English."

    Well, my ancestry is primarily English, however I am, typically for a North Westerner, of some mixed-British heritage. Of course, this is different than being half Swedish/half German, for example, due to the (arguable) politico-economic 'unity' of the British Isles. I feel English outright, but that aside, I don't mind my divergent heritage - there is alot to admire in both the Scots and the Irish. It is family rumour that we have a German in our history, something that hasn't yet been proven by research, however if we were to assume the rumour to be 100% true, it would have no effect on my self-perception, considering he would be something like my ggggg Grandfather (following the maternal line...).

    In my opinion there's some option missing: "I'm pure but I wouldn't mind ancestry from (closely related) ethnicities." A more neutral stance than "I am e.g. a full Dutchman, but I would also enjoy having ancestors from different countries." I quite share Cenwulf's view in this.

    Concerning Germanics it's not that much of a big deal in my eyes anyways, as long as the (regional) cultural and sub-racial differences aren't too big between the groups or individuals in question. For example a relation between a hyper-Nordid from Sweden and a hyper-Alpine from deepest southern Bavaria might be quite questionable to me.
    But I'm also talking about Celts here, who are so closely related to Germanics that in some things the frontiers between the two groups are blurry.
