    Question What Nationalities Comprise Your Ancestral Nationality?

    Because of things said in this thread, I thought it'd be interesting for us to make a poll. The basic question is.... what nationalities comprise your ancestry and general make-up. You don't have to list them. The important thing is the number and amount, plus whether you are an American, European, or other colonist (Australian, South American, etc.). For example, my ancestry is comprised of 7/8 German and 1/8 (split English and Irish), and I am "American." If you don't want to list what yours are,then just say for example: 7/8 one thing, and 1/8 something else. I know some people don't like to admit what they are and that is okay in this poll.


    Edit: I forgot to link above...plus I wanted to add that this is NOT a "better than thou" poll, so NO insults!!!!! Obviously, we'd expect Europeans to have less ancestral nationalities than Americans and other colonials. This is simply informational because of the other thread it was brought up in.

    Re: Ancestral Nationality

    I am of English, German, Lowland Scots (ethnically Anglo-Saxon), and Ulster Scots (ethnically Anglo-Saxon) descent with less than an eighth Irish.
    I'm not sure what the percentages are but My dad is probably 80 to 90% German, the rest being English and a little Irish. My mom is an Anglo-Saxon British mix of the aforementioned groups. But the plurality, if not the majority, of my heritage is Anglo-Saxon/English.

    Completely Dutch, and mostly Frisian (a little part of my ancestry come from the "Nedersaksische" region).

    Re: Ancestral Nationality

    Australian, ancestry predominantly from Ireland, with 1/8 or less from England, Spain.
    All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream at night, in the dusky recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity. But the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams, with open eyes, to make it possible.

    Why would we expect this?

    In my experience, most people don't know their ancestors beyond those they have met. Americans in this condition tend to call themselves either "American" or "everything" (or perhaps more denigrating terms). Europeans in this condition tend to call themselves 100% of whatever nationality is predominant where they were born. Neither is necessarily correct. This would seem to indicate that we can only expect that Europeans will claim fewer ancestral nationalities that Americans and other colonials.

    I know that here at Skadi one can find many exceptions to this. We are not indicative of the population at large in this group. But even here I have read claims from Europeans of 100% purity of a given nationality with no more evidence than the birth location of one's four grandparents. I have gone back eight generations to come up with my answer to this question, but I feel a little uncertain about the conclusiveness of that small generational depth, since it doesn't go far back into Europe, and international migration in Europe has been very common over the centuries.

    So I kind of wonder, Jennifer, what kind of generational depth do you expect from the respondents in this poll? Without significant generational depth, I think the results will be quite skewed.
