Default Native Californian or Transplant?

I was curious, as usual, about the percentage of frequent posters here who are California native born or transplants from other states,countries? If you were not born here, what or who brought you here and where did you move from? What made you stay here? Hope to get some informative answers. Thanks all!

My parents were both born and raised in New York, but I was born in Pasadena, CA. I think that makes me first generation Californian! I've never lived outside L.A. County, which is one reason of 1,000 why I'd like to move.

I am a super proud Californian. I have traveled the world, but I will most likely never leave this ever changing and dynamic golden state.

2nd generation Californian, who probably will be forced to leave by rising rents at some point in time but who will greatly regret leaving.

I moved here from New York when I was five but somehow never felt like I fit in here. I wonder if other transplanted Californian's feel this way even if you have been here most of your life?

I moved to California when I was 11. It took me a couple of months to fit in but once I did, I was all Californian. I feel like a native Calif even though I was not born there. Love it!

California natives have been in the minority ever since the Gold Rush. The percentage of Californians born elsewhere has remained consistent at 66% of the population ever since the 1860s (although the places said people were born have changed through the years).
