Nationality is technically what country you are legally a citizen of, rather than who your ancestors were.
I'm South American as I was born there, Israeli as my mum registered me when I was little and also British.
If I was to include ancestors, I'll have to say Polish and possibly German or Dutch, going by my surname.
Ahhh, What about expats who move from one country to another. A person from Brazil could become a Canadian but they are still from Brazil.
I'm half Irish, my mothers side and half English on my fathers side...
Literally like, nothing else... That I know of.
But then again if you want to get technical I suppose being half of each could mean there's some Norweigen and other European blood in there. Like anglo-saxon and whatnot... Way down the line.
So nevermind, it's not that boring. lol
And he's right, it's really only heritage.
As far as nationality and ethnicity, I'm American, and I'm more than obviously white.

English, Irish, german-speaking Swiss, French, Dutch, Scottish, and a few other UK places that I can't remember.
