http://www.survivalmonkey.com/forum/showthread.php?p=87373#post87373 For those of you that cannot see the Inferno, it has to do with racism; not particularly offensive, but expresses some opinions. It triggered my curiosity about what races/nationalities are represented on this forum. So the question, then: Where did your ancestors call home? For the record, I'm of German stock arriving here in the 1700s, with a few other hyphens thrown in for leavening. About all that is left of any of the hyphens is my surname. I'd have it no other way; besides, who cares? I can see that some might be less than enthusiastic about posting this sort of information for one reason or another. Might be a blind poll would be a better way to dredge up a sampling, but the number of possibilities is way big for that.
