Well I’m an American but my grandparents from both parents were all born in Canada. Still have some family left near Vancouver but most everyone made their way to Washington before I was born. Dirty Canucks I tell ya what

That makes you American. I used to live in New Hampshire and loved all those idiots saying ‘I’m Irish’ when they were born in Boston. :shamrock: :shamrock:

Idk ancestry is fun. Helps give you a sense of self and a culture & people to align yourself with. Great grandparents came from italy & Ireland into Canada since it was easier to get into at the time than the US. My mom is the only person that was born in the US besides my siblings so I feel pretty connected. Used to visit a few times a year to BC to see my family up there. Feels just like home every time I go. Not sure where you are in Canada but if you get 100.3 The Q it’s my favorite station out of Victoria

My seven greats grandfather was born in Naensen, Germany and came to the Colonies as a part of the Hessian mercenaries. He was captured (most likely at the Battle of Trenton from what we know of his story) and elected to remain here after the war and start a family.
