My Dad is the same as you, moved to Germany as his Dad got posted there in the army and Gran and Grandad had him there. Imo you can't say he's German, not asif he has any German relatives even. He's got a British passport though.
i) How far would you go back?
ii) Why that far?
iii) How could you tell, anyway?
iv) Have you had your DNA tested? Bet you haven't.
Besides, currently available evidence strongly indicates that all human DNA comes from sub-Saharan Africa, probably in the great rift valley, probably towards the east, probably modern day Kenya or maybe Ethiopia.
Good morning, fellow Kenyans!
I just think if your born in England your English even if you moved. If you were born in Russia and moved to America your Russian
Where you were born is what nationality you are. It annoys me when people go "im part this and part this" because of my mum and my great great grandma....
What would happen if you were born in international waters? You would adopt your parents nationality.
Well, surely you wouldn't fly if you were pregnant for one?what if you had English parents and were born prematurely on holiday in russia and then got straight on a plane back to England and lived there the rest of your life? you really think that you should be classified as Russian?
Not to sure myself to be honest! Like you could of lived in England for 30years, gone to work in 'x' for say 5years you know so.i said a premature birth, anyway i'm sure you can think of lots of cases where you might be born in another country and then move on.
anyway, how long a time limit? 5 years? ten years? also by 'in the country' do you mean holding a visa or work permit or what? what about illegals, what about refugees? its a can of worms really. I think largely we should be allowed to choose our parents nationality.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Third_culture_kid Welcome to the clubI'm pretty much fed up of the 'Where are you from' questions I keep on getting, and if I reply 'Im from Bradford, in the UK, up north somewhere in Yorkshire', and then the person just stares at me with a completely confused and gobsmacked look. Some of them then proceed to ask 'No no no, where are your parents from'?
It should be legalised to be able to punch people in the gob if they ask you 'where are you from'.[...]
