    Hello from Wyo

    I am Wyomingite born and bred. Never knew exactly what my ancestry was until a few weeks ago when, reading this site as a lurker, I got curious.

    Got onto ancestry.dot.com

    discovered:

    Father's side:
    Father's father: Danish immigrant
    Father's mother: Norwegian immigrant
    After my dad's folks got US citizenship and married, moved to Canada and homesteaded for cattle ranching. So Dad had both Canadian and U.S. citizenship growing up and was directed to choose upon age of majority. Chose U.S. and came to WY. My dad was exactly what a cowboy looks like.

    Mother's side (gets complicated)
    Mother's mother: half Austrian immigrant, quarter Pennsylvania Dutch, quarter Swiss
    Mother's father: Luxembourg immigrant whose father was Luxembourg(ian?), mother Belgian.
    Mom grew up on a cattle ranch in Nebraska that her mother homesteaded before she married. Then met her husband through correspondence. Mom moved at 25 to WY and married my dad.

    So what ethny does that make me?

    Thanks;

    I'll change my ethnicity to American of European descent. Glad to be here. All my grandparents having passed on before I was ever born, never knew too much about life in Europe.

    I'm a "crazy" conspiracy-theorist.

    And my "crazy conspiracy theory" is, non-Whites would like to move into and take for themselves the nice countries Whites built. And seeing that, like Felipe Calderon said, where there's a Mexican, there's Mexico, they recreate anew what they just fled --

    -- yeah, I'm shaking in my shoes at what's coming.

    It's not so complicated when you consider the fact that the Austrians, Pennsylvania Dutch, and Swiss-Germans are ethnic Germans. The Luxembourgers are also largely part of that German milieu. As for your Belgian ancestry, it depends on whether your great-grandmother was a Fleming or Walloon.

    To sum it up, I would say you're an American of Norwegian, Danish, and German descent. You're certainly a nice example of a Germanic-American, and I think that might be more appropriate than the rather more ambiguous title of European-American.

    Thanks, Loyalist.
    How would I find that out? My Luxembourger (thanks) grampa's immigration card just says nationality of his mother is Belgium. I don't know her name.

    Is there a particular genetic "look" that would indicate? There are a few old pics of grampa, although I never saw him -- died before I was born.

    "German" means German national of German ethny, right? Whereas "Germanic" means the Germans who emigrated? Are the Scandi -who-vians Germanics, also? My dad was very tall with lean, rugged, sculpted features and a big head. (His cowboy hats always fell down onto the top of other peoples' heads.)
