I never say I'm "[country]-an/ese/ish", I'm very careful about that... because I've never even been to most of the places my ancestors came from (except Ireland, and then only as a tourist), and culturally I'm as small-town America as you can get.
Neither am I multiracial, so this really isn't "my" thread O_o;
But regardless, my ancestors came from...
- southern Italy (Calabria), though there's reason to believe that the patrilineal line there came to Calabria from Albania (the name is really not Italian in origin, but no one's sure exactly where it DID come from)
- somewhere in Germany - that branch stayed in eastern Pennsylvania long enough that nobody knows where they came from before then (usually called "Pennsylvania Dutch")... I should trace that someday, though everyone in that family line is dead :/
- the French Alps area, Alsace-Lorraine
- County Cork, Ireland (when I finally saw Cork, I was struck by how much it looked like the city my great-grandfather and his father DID move to, here. ^_^; Odd.)
Pretty typical industrial-city turn-of-the-century mixture, all around. And I'm interested in how all these random people are connected through history, even though it IS a rather boring, "typical anglo" combination at first glance. Also the stories that come from it, like one of my two French ancestors being a young woman who died while her son (my great-grandfather) was still a child, and how her husband left the US and went back to Ireland to find a new wife with his six-year-old son in tow - then came back.
So see, it can be more than "I'm blah and blah and blah"
