Funny you should bring this topic up.  I was just thinking about it the other day.  I am Hungarian and German on my Mom's side and German with a bit of English on my Dad's side.  I find I relate mostly to my German heritage, through my Dad's side.  We trace our family ancestry, through one line, in this country to the early 1700's and even possibly to the mid 1600's through another line,  with that much family history, in this country I find it strange that I still label myself regularly as German-American and I know of many others with similar family histories that do the same.  So at what point do we stop labeling ourselves as ??-American and just call ourselves Americans?

My paternal Great Grandfather and Grandmother were Scots, since then, my paternal ancestors have all been American with Scottish heritage.

 

My maternal Great Grandfather was French traced back to the 16th century and my maternal Great Grandmother was Native American, or as she preferred, a Black Foot, since then my maternal ancestors have all been American with some Danish heritage added in.

 

I've never been anything but an American, though I have a heritage of Scot, French, Danish, and Native American.

 

I live on the right side of the hyphen.

Ukrainian.  Pure as pure can be.  I like North America, though.  It's been my home for decades.

French and Irish on my Mom's side, French and Scottish on my Dad's. Both parents were raised in Quebec, but I spent part of my growing up years in Winnipeg, where I fell in love with Ukrainian and Polish food, along with my Mom's wonderful Quebec cuisine.
