I was surprised how many German surnames I noticed in Upstate New York, I would have never guessed that. Also a fair number of Germans settled in Virginia, due to rifle styles and gun makers there during 18Th century.

    After 17776 there have been no major waves of English people compared to other European groups. It only makes sense they are pretty much were they first settled.
    There is virtually no German ancestry in West Virginia, yet somehow half the state is German.
    What is a "fair number"? It's not enough to make a significant dent thats for sure

    All it's showing is what people THINK they are.

    The fact so many Americans claimed to have native ancestry, but later got DNA tests back showing 100% European really proves that you can't trust the average white American knows anything about their ancestry

    Because America was settled by so many different European races I think they just all blended more or less with each other and called themselves "American" back then there wasn't any of this nonsense about hyphenating with something else. That is probably why you don't get a lot of talk about English-Americans, German-Americans etc because their families have been there for so long now that they are just American.

    The whole hyphenating thing is pretty new anyway and designed to cause more division in society by the usual suspects.
    I grew up on a belief of honour, courage and the old world values. The world isn't about that anymore, preferring to die a slow death of fast food and cheap thrills.

    I just want to say that I am proud of my English ancestry. It goes to show that English-Americans and German-Americans don't walk around with a bullhorn bragging about their ancestry like other ethnicities (mostly non-Germanic). They don't need to because they already know who and what they are.
