I seem to have misplaced my own...and it seems to have disappeared off the face of the internet.


It was a US map that had about 8-12 different colors representing what 'racial heritage' people identified with. French, German, Italian, African, Irish Etc.

Thanks tons for any links or help you can provide!


Nevermind I found it...on wikipedia. DOH!


Here it is...for anyone that's interested.

I love how most of the southerners just define themselves as American. their ancestors had to come from SOMEWHERE.

I'm sorry but when your ancestors have got here in the 1690's and there hasn't been a foreign born person in your family since the 1700's, it's kinda hard to identify with that.

All those people got here in the 1690's...?

It looks like most Americans are of German descent, which I've heard before.

But not so much in the South. Most people are of English or Scotch-Irish or Scottish or Irish (sometimes I wonder about this one) decent and many claim an Indian ancestry as well. There are some German decendents and French, Spanish and Italian in the South as well but by and large it is Anglo or Celtic

One thing I have noticed about the South as opposed to other regions is with the uncertainty of lineage, ethnicity is not discussed much down here. As someone once said "Its' not your peoples' country, rather it's what church they belong to!"

The most recent immigrant I know of on my family tree came in the 1820s. Most of my ancestors came from Scotland during the Jacobite Rebellion in 1745, most coming ashore at Wilmington NC.

I've read a few things about this...

The south is very Anglo/Celt, but when you look at English Ancestry in the states, i find it hard to believe that in 2000 census only 24 million Americans claimed English Ancestry???

Yet in 1980, 50 million claimed English Ancestry.

Since the war of the revolution almost 3.5 million English have settled in the states. adding to the vast majority of Americans who was already of English heritage.
