Indian-American (I guess that's the right term, not to be confused with American Indians) but of course born and raised in the USA.

Wiggum: Freeze, goombahs! We're shuttin' you down, you filthy I-talians.
Lou: [whispers something to Chief Wiggum]
Wiggum: Oh, right, right, filthy I-talian-Americans!

Just kidding folks!

Change is the only constant

aside from being born and raised in canada...

my whole area is pretty much german. my ancestors come mostly from germany and partly from russia.

as you can tell by almost all the town and village names where i live (the german language is almost as popular as english is here) we are dominantly german.

examples... i live in and around these places:

gnadenfeld, nubergthal, halbstadt, altona (also suburb of hamburg), rosenfeld, gretna, and sommerfeld. i believe you will find all of these places in germany as well.

its also come to my knowledge within the past year or so that several former german soldiers of ww2 also have settled around these parts. i want to meet one of them one day, curiousity sake, however ive heard they dont wish to talk about it with anyone, and that i can understand.

*sigh* I should have gone with my gut instinct that this thread would get ugly.

1/4 Slovak
1/4 German
1/2 Southern- It's a nationality I swear. If you asked my grandmothers where their families originated, they'd say Tennessee.

I from the south- I'm a southern girl.

Mostly Italian, then slightly less Hungarian, and a pinch each of French & German.

Blood and blisters, on my fingers
Chaos rules when we're apart
Watch my temper, I go mental
I'll try to be gentle...
