    English and Scottish with a Cherokee great-great-great-grandmother. Most of my English ancestors came here very early in the 1600s.

    There might be some German blood in me but not sure


    But as I know most of my ancestors originate from Slavs that inhabited today's Slovenia in like 6th century.

    In my mind is there no German culture. Its a term for a couple of very similar cultures and the Austrian culture is a part of it. So for me every Austrian is a German but not every German is Austrian

    But thats very off topic

    100% Dutch for as far back (four generations) as I know off.

    My ancestors were boring people.

    Cool My Nationality

    My great grandfather (mothers side) was Mayor of Rotterdam https://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gerard_van_Walsum he and his daughter(my grandmother) were Dutch and survived the bombardment of Rotterdam, and then my grandmother met my Grandfather who happen to be an Australian fighting in the Canadian Army Corps that was Liberating the Netherlands... after WW2 they went to Australia (aka the Netherlands was fucked up) and my mother was born there in Australia.

    My grandfather (Fathers side) was a Dutch Soldier who was in the Indonesian National Revolution https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Indone...nal_Revolution after Indonesia got independent, he was one of the only soldiers that stayed, he fell in love with an Indonesian Women and they moved to Papua New Guinea and then my father got born in https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Port_Moresby

    Finally my mom and dad met in the Snowy mountains on a skiing holidays in Australia and I was Later born in Sydney in 1996 and in 2006 we moved to Amsterdam and now I live in the Netherlands.

    So I am gene wise:
    50% Dutch
    25% Indonesian
    25% Australian
    if I am right

    or

    and nationality wise:
    37.5% Australian
    25% New Guinean
    25% Dutch
    12.5 % Indonesian
