I'm American ,Swedish, Norweigen and a little Scotish, Irish and German thrown in for kicks.

My dad's side is Swedish and Norweigen (from Minnesota).
My mom's side is mostly Swedish. My grampa had some Scotish, Irish and German in him, but my great grandma is 100% Swedish. I even have the most Swedish surname around. Also my grandma still speaks Swedish. They live in northern Maine and she always answers the phone in Swedish. Mom said when they had company over, when she was growing up, the men and women would split up into different groups and all speak Swedish. Mom learned to understand it, but she can't speak it and neither could my grandpa.

Interesting fact, I am acctually decended from the Swedish royal family.

culturally: i have never been outside of the united states, something i hope to remedy in the not too distant future

ancestrally: my paternal grandmother has danish heritage (don't know about my biological grandfather on that side), and my mom's family is all german and slavic. there's also a little bit of native american in there, but i'm not sure what tribe. my grandmother did a bunch of genealogical research and found that my great grandmother was descended from a beggar who died saving the life of english royalty, and was knighted after his death

I'm Canadian, and adopted. So I don't know what my true ancestry is. My biological mother was white, however she gave no info on the bio-dad. None whatsoever. So as far as I'm concerned, he may as well have been a ghost for all I know or care.
A friend of mine is just gobsmacked that I've got no interest in hunting down my bio-mom. Why don't I? I wear no rose-colored glasses on this subject. Some bio moms do often wonder "what if?" and want to know how the kids they put up for adoption made out. Or regret the decision. Meanwhile, a lot of others don't want to be found for whatever reason. Yeah, some bio-family hunts end in big happy hugs. But a lot of others only end in heartbreak, with the found parents being either angry "How dare you show up now!" or resigned "I always knew you would find me". So why risk causing pain to myself or somebody else? Curiosity aside, it's not an apple cart worth upsetting. So I'll leave it be.
Although sometimes I do wonder- I get a decent number of people who wonder if I have First Nations blood somewhere.

As for my adopted family, we've got English, Welsh, Scottish, Irish, French, and even some American.

Oh yesh 8D Here's mine:

Indonesia
Netherlands

My whole family is either from Netherlands or Indonesia. I could be quiet a downer and standoff-ish like Netherlands from Hetalia around people I don't know. Himaruya has not made Indoesia yet sadly ;A;

I'm apparently Irish, Greek, and Polish, but that's only on my mom's side. I don't know about my father's side - they're all rednecks in Texas, and "don't give a rat's ass" about "what commie nations" their ancestors are from. Those are direct quotes from my grandfather on my dad's side. I really do despise them.
