By law or in the political eye I'm English. But I'm half Irish and only 1/4 English along with 1/4 Scottish. I'm more interested in my Scottish heritage, and I don't consider myself English really. My family are relatively new to England, I'm the first generation of women on my mums side of the family to be born in this country. My brother is the second generation of men on my dad's side so I don't really see us as English.

Well I'm half Scottish and half English. I've been living in Scotland for 5 years now. I do miss England alot, its like my proper home. I don't really know, I do prefer England though, because its more me. Scotland is okay but I wont live there when I'm older. NO way
Its been five years and I speak full English, I miss mah home! I cant loose mah accent!

Over three-quarters Irish, one-sixteenth Cherokee, and the rest is a mix of German, etc.
We could just go with American. Or Texan... greatest state, dontcha know...

*cough cough* Everyone take a deep breath and prepare to ignore my post...heh....
Native American (Sioux) 25%
I have basically a cross of Greek, Italian and Native American features. I have the Greek eyes (if anyone knows what I am talking about) the Native American/ Italian dark dark skin and the long, Native American hair. I consider myself mainly Italian and Native American....I look basically Greek or so people say.

57% Australian (I was born in Australia)
and about 3% Chinese
That's all I know from my dad's side but I'm pretty sure I'm just English from my mothers (side).

I don't know the percentages but I am...
My Dad's side:
My grandmother immigrated here to America during World War II from Germany(no i'm not Jewish), my grandfather was already living here but here but he was Italian and Russian (his father was Italian and his mother Russian)
My Mom's side:
Mainly Czechoslovakian but I know I do have a Polish heritage from one of my great grandparents on that side

This isn't a debate, hence, does not belong in a debate forum, carry on.

And maybe one day Australian!
Anyway ... Aussie. Hawks right, in Australia you're either Aboriginal or European. I fit into the European catagory.
See, I'm (on my mothers side)
Sccotish (my Nana's ancestors apparently came from there at some stage)
Irish (my grandparents parents at some stage were from there, but them moved to South Africa. I have no South African blood in me whatsoever because when my mother was 15 they went to Australia. Not only were they poor in South Africa, but one of my numerous uncles had spent some time in prison there for a protest about black rights ... mum mentioned that once. I still have reletives I've either rarely or never met there, including a great uncle Denis who was an arch bishop and defender of black rights until he died not that long ago ... I say the word "off" with a South African accent, I learnt it from my mum)
On my dad's side:
Sccotish (my grandmother's maiden name was a sccotish clan)
But I just call myself Australian. As far as I'm concerned, I was born here, therefore I'm an Aussie.

I was born in Norway, but because my parents are Dutch, I am that too. I have lived in Scotland my whole life though. A lot of people insist that I should be Norweigen because I was born there, but I am Dutch. I have a Dutch passport and it's on all my certificates. I have never lived in the Netherlands though. I do speak Dutch and have been over there plenty because any family I have are all living in Holland (other than my direct family). Aparantly I'm 1/16 chinese or something. That's too small to be included though...

I consider myself an American. I mean, after all, I was born here. But I'm 50% Greek, 25% Austrian, and 25% Irish/British. (According to my mom, both my great-grandparents were Irish and just met in England, but I read in an old photo album that my great-grandpa was born in England. Meh, whatever.)

pretty much just pure Scottish. Theres probably a bit of Irish in me, and maybe English too...but im mostly Scottish..

With trees upon't that nod unto the world,And mock our eyes with air.."

Citizenship: Israeli and American
Nationality: (that I consider meself, anyway) Israeli, born and bred
Jewish (if you consider it an ethnicity, like I do)
Heres the basic rundown:
On my dad's side, my both of his grandfathers, and one of his grandmothers were Russian (from Kiev, in the Ukraine) and his other grandmother was from Poland. But, again, they werent considered Russians or Poles, they were just considered Jews, and fled the pogroms of the early 1900s.
On my moms side: her grandfather came from Russia and her grandmother came from Germany and fled about 20 years before the holocaust
So, my ethnicity is KINDA European, but I don't consider myself that AT ALL. I consider myself first and foremost Israeli, then American. I was contemplating even Hebraizing my name, because when Im in Israel, my last name SANDERS sounds really funny, cuz the way its pronounced in Hebrew is kinda like Send-er-z
