No, I don't think so. My mom is German-American and hates cold/cloudy weather. That's why we moved to Arizona when I was little....so she could escape the weather in DC (which really isn't that cold or cloudy compared to a lot of the country). My grandmother is from Germany and is the exact same way. I have friends who are British/Irish descent who prefer sunshine and hate the rain/cold too. This is just my personal experience, so this is not to say that there might be some correlation between ancestral heritage and climate preference as a whole.

From what I can tell, not really. There might be some small role that ancestral heritage plays, but people's individual preferences have far more impact on what type of climate they like. Often times, people related to each other can't agree.

For example, I'm of part German and part Armenian heritage, and I think that warm and sort of humid summer days are great (think like 90 degrees during the day and maybe 65 at night.) I also like snow. Go figure.
