    Default Americans with pure (or near that) English colonial ancestry...

    Are they common in America?

    Wich are the regions where you found those type of people more times?

    Will all of them mix with other European ancestries?

    Must be remembered that 98% of the people in America calling themselves "Irish" have no Irish ancestry at all, just relatives who came TO America from Ireland, after fucking it up. So just about anyone who calls themselves "Irish" or "scots irish" can be safely assumed as colonial English. None of them are Irish or Scottish nor were their ancestors. And of course EVERYONE who was born and raised here is an American and nothing else.

    I wouldn't say pure colonials are common generally. But they do exist, especially in the South (perhaps parts of the southern Midwest as well) and in New England. The more rural the area, the more likely.

    I think America has reached a point where little distinction is made between European ethnicities. Spaniards may be an exception due to the mass confusion on what exactly a Hispanic is. Generally, though, as long as a person is of European descent, most other European-Americans will be open to marriage.

    This is somewhat a part of St. Patrick's Day celebration when everyone is considered Irish for one day. Most 'Irish' would have been post colonial anyhow.


    And of course EVERYONE who was born and raised here is an American and nothing else.
    This is the ultimate answer ,heritage is something else. The American colonial days were about 240 years ago giving much time for the 'pure' bit to get watered down. I doubt very much there are any 100% or anywhere near pure colonial family lines left.

    Obviously I can't say I'm pure colonial English, but my mother is very close to it. I myself am 7/16 colonial English (almost half), 1/16 Swedish, 1/4 English via Northern Ireland (maybe with some Irish and/or Scottish mixed in) and 1/4 Southern Irish. There's basically 2 types of colonial English Americans (at least in Massachusetts). There's the elite upper class ones, then the "Swamp Yankees", which is what my line came from.

    There is a difference between ethnicity and ancestry (although some overlap exists).

    Using example of Poles in the US, there is around 10,000,000 of Polish ancestry.
    But maybe only 1-2 million of them are actually ethnically Polish. This happens probably because the US is mostly a melting pot.

    So I would guess that the vast majority of English/Irish ancestries are basically American.

    People are starting to care less about even being of European descent.

    What? So who are the other 8-9 million in your opinion?:

    I guess you mean that they are mixed with other ethnicities?

    That's true, but they still tend to score a lot of "Baltic" in K13:
