I was born and raised in Florida, moved to New York 10 years ago and love it. Funny story, met a woman in a bar and after chatting for a while she asked "So what are you?". I had no idea what she wanted to know. Obviously I was a woman. Did she want my job title? She finally clarified that it was my nationality she was interested in. I'd lived 40 years and had never been asked that question. She was then dissapointed that I wasn't Italian. Must be a New York thing, I've been asked the same question at least 50 times since then.
LOL! We New Yawkers love to talk about what you are. Of course I find that most people think I'm Irish as Paddy's pigs in the winter when I'm pale as a ghost, and think I'm some kind of Native American in the summer when my skin is really dark. Nobody guesses right, and sometimes I don't correct them just to have some fun...

OK. But what nationality are you?

Don't tell me American because Canadians and Mexicans and even Peruvians are Americans.

So what nationality are you Citizens of the United States of America?

I'll now get down in my bunker so I don't get my head shot off.

Sorry, but why do you want to know the theoretical European (or otherwise) origin of my ancestors? What was the origin of my ancestors ancestors?

If your great-grandpa came to the USA from Sweden, but HIS great-grandpa was born in Russia, would you call yourself Swedish, or would you have to call yourself Russian? Or do you go back 3 million years to follow the Out-of-Africa argument?

I don't think anyone but first-generation immigrants need to hyphenate themselves. One's ethnicity is hardly the same as one's nationality.

I find it hard to believe you're not interested your ancestry, I've always was fascinated where they came from. With Google earth you can look at the streets they walked, the houses they lived in. Maybe it's just me?
