    background?

    The Germanic side of me came to the States back in 1848-49. You see my 3 great grandfather happened to be a University student in Aachen and was heavily involved in the Revolution 1848-1849 and somehow managed to get on the Prussian Secret Police list as a person of interest. So he left for Cincinnati Ohio for his health and wellbeing. Other Germanic ties include the Tschudi's of Switzerland who emigrated in the 1720's and the Wittwer's of the Tyrol who emigrated in 1848 and the Laudemann's of Bavaria who emigrated in 1849. All settling in the Cincinnati Area. I also have English and Irish connections as well, these connections go back to the 17th and 18th Centuries. We have been here in North America for a long long time and consider ourselves more American than anything else.

    Anglo-American is the best label for me. I voted Germanic-American, but there is a small amount of non-Germanic in my blood. Some Italian, but a small amount, and the old photos of my Italian ancestors weren't exactly swarthy. There is also a bit of Irish, but my ancestors from Ireland had Norwegian surnames.

    this is actually always a big deal for frisians like me. we are divided amongst 3 nations: nederlands, germany, and denmark. we are a minority threatened to die out and intigrate into mainstream society and we have been almost forced to become something we are not. we are different from the dutch and germans. we are frisians a very distrinct group of people who would make more sense being called danish than german or dutch. for this i call myself frisian or of the scandinavian nordic people
