50% French ( from my mom's side)
From my dad's side I'm 37.5 % Italian and 12.5 % Ashkenazic Jewish!

my dad came from the Bronx NYC, but lived and was raised in Chicago( which is where all my paternal family is, my mom on the other hand is a Pennsylvanian but was raised in Detroit, Michigan. This was because her family migrated to Detroit during the automotive industry in Michigan.

It'd be more the other way around. Original English people are Celtic. Germanic groups did go to England though. Linguistically, English and Dutch are pretty similar. I took a DNA test and got 23% Dutch but 0% British. Now someone with British ancestry is more likely to have Germanic (Dutch but also German) ancestry mixed in than someone with Dutch ancestry having Celtic (British or Irish) ancestry as human migration in that region went westward more than eastward.

I know that my ancestors were in Alabama during the Civil War.That's good enough for me. I just say my ancestors were Southern Americans.

Mom is half Polish (Warsaw so we think) and half Italian (Calabria & Naples.) So Eastern European and Italian.

Dad is half German (Hamburg) and half Irish (Dublin) but apparently the Irish ancestors originated somewhere in Sweden. So Viking / Germanic?

Also the half German side is also half Ashkenazic Jewish and half Methodist - completely washed out by the fact my Dad's Mom is super Catholic and my Mom's side is all Catholic.

I REALLY need to get a DNA Test.

And even if they did, they'd still probably need to be broken up by nationality. I don't really think it's fair to link people from India and China in the same group.

Unfortunately, 2000 was the last census that asked for ancestry. That's why we don't have any data for 2010.
And apparently in the census 2000 there was a super low turnout for reporting for ancestry. It might actually be more interesting to look at the 1990 census which had much higher turnout: 1990 Census of Population: Detailed Ancestry Groups for States

It's also worth nothing that some states are straight up melting pots where a lot of ethnic groups take dominance but even the smaller ethnicities still have respectable populations. Like NJ is heavily Italian but also has one of the oldest Vasa Order of America locations (Scandinavian.)

Biological mother's side- All French

Biological fathers side- All Italian ( with ancestors from Sicily and the boot, mainland Italy). But the thing is was that i'm adopted, so I was never exposed to or raised with those cultures, my biological parents lived in Chicago, but I was not raised there. I was raised in Louisville, KY with parents of mainly German, English, Irish and some sort of jewish descent ( I strongly guessing ashkenazi?)
