My ethnicity is Italian

My cultural background is Brazilian

My nationality is Australian and Brazilian

That's quite a background, Naturally! Were you born in Brazil or did you just obtain citizenship there?

I think I may have some French in me...maybe Swedish too I'm not exactly sure lol. But I dont really identify with being anything other than American to be honest. My family's traced our ancestors back to Revolutionary war times here in America (late 1700s) so I'm far far removed from any other culture or 'homeland' or anything lol

I bet you're somewhat Scandinavian, DD. If the blond hair and big build says anything about you.

I know I have some French (my Nana and Mom's first languages are French) and English (my Great Grandma's name was Mildred Townsend) but that's about it! :)

Mmm, I believe I'm a mixture of German/Swiss.. My great-great-great (however many times) grandfather was Swiss German. My heritage is Amish, but I only speak English (My parents still can speak English and Pennsylvania Dutch which is like Low German and can read High German but we left when I was around 2 so I never learned any of that)

Where were you born Envincebal?

I was born and raised in the state of Oregon, USA. My mom was born in Hong Kong and my dad came from a village in China. They both immigrated and met in Canada before settling down here in America.

Japanese, German, and Filipino. I'm not Irish, although people have asked me that what with the red hair and all.

I'm all shades of mutt if you look back into it... I know we have an Irish ancestor who fought in the American Revolution, and at some point someone in our history married a native American (though you'd never know it, since I'm about as white as they come), etc... but Welsh and German ancestry take the cake by far.

Nationally I'm American, though we did live as expatriots in the Middle East for a number of years while I was growing up, so I'm sure third world countries had some impact on my world views.

What are the Mennonites, may I ask?

The Mennonites are a Christian sect that was started by Menno Simons. They are known for being pacifists. They are similar to the Amish.

By blood I am Russian and Georgian. But seeing as I was adopted when I was 2 months old, I am 100% Canadian culturally. And my friends joke I am "extra white" because I burn so incredibly easily (even just ten minutes of sun exposure,) yet I never tan! Lol. I'll just be a pale freak forever then...

If I hadn't been adopted, I would still have Russian blood in me, although my family fled Russia in the 20's due to extreme hatred against the Jews. I would also have some Norwiegen blood in me. So if I hadn't been adopted...10% Russian, 10% Norwiegen, and 80% Canadian. Cuz absolutely no one in my family speaks Russian and Norwiegen, or is at all connected to those countries. That part of the family heritage is long gone.
