Since a new poll was requested, I took it upon myself to give it a try. As you can see, the focus of this poll somewhat differs from the previous one, asking instead where you are from. Leave a comment if you wish to exactly specify (for those whose choice is of a more general nature).

A quick explanation of some:

Africa (Sub Sahara): south of North (Saharan) Africa
Australasia: Australia, New Zealand, New Guineau, etc.
Balkans: Croatia, Albania, Serbia, etc.
Baltics: Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania
Benelux: Belguim, Luxemborg, Netherlands
Central Asia: Pakistan, India, Kazakhstan and other 'stans'
Latin America: Central/South America
Scandinavia: Norway, Sweden, Denmark, etc.
Southeast Asia: Vietnam, Thailand, Indonesia, etc.
Other: None of the above :)

Question for Koreans born in Russia/Soviet Union? I am curious, what is on your internal passport: Russian, Korean, other?

A Russian friend and I were talking about how it is decided what goes on your internal passport. My wife was born in the Soviet Union with a Russian mother and German father, and she choose Russian.

Did you actually have a choice? My son was born in Russia and I am American. At some point, if he choses Russian Citizenship would he then have a choice on his ethnic background?

My grandparents (his great grandparents) came from Germany and Ireland but I listed American which is not really a ethnic background but a Nationality.

Thanks

At Soviet times we had such choise, as there was a special column in the Soviet passport - in fact there were 2 columns 'nationality' and 'ethnical background'. Nationality was always 'soviet', ethnical background you could choose (one of your parent's). Now we only have 1 column - 'nationality', which is always 'Russian', and no choise

Good question...
If you ask about ethnic background - it is Korean...
If about Residency - Russian citizen ^-*
But as for me I was born in Russia - so it is fair if I was named Russian.....but my parents and grandparents came out originally from Korea South/North do not know exactly :shame:
And i have doubts - did they have a choice about nationality in passport..? :suspect:

There is a wonderful section on russian koreans in wikipedia, I don't know how accurate it is, but here's the link, I found it very interesting. I had no idea that there were so many of them. Koryo-saram - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Koryo-saram)




Excerpt from beginning...
"Koryo-saram (Russian: Корё сарам; Hangul: 고려사람) is the name which ethnic Koreans in the Post-Soviet states use to refer to themselves. Approximately 500,000 ethnic Koreans reside in the former USSR, primarily in the now independent states of Central Asia. There are also large Korean communities in southern Russia (around Volgograd), the Caucasus, and southern Ukraine. These communities can be traced back to the Koreans who were living in the Russian Far East during the late 19th century.

There is also a separate ethnic Korean community on the island of Sakhalin, typically referred to as Sakhalin Koreans. Some may identify as Koryo-saram, but many do not. Unlike the communities on the Russian mainland, which consist mostly of immigrants from the late 1800s and early 1900s, the ancestors of the Sakhalin Koreans came as immigrants from Kyongsang and Jeolla provinces in the late 1930s and early 1940s, forced into service by the Japanese government to work in coal mines in Sakhalin (then known as Karafuto Prefecture) in order to fill labour shortages caused by World War II.[3]"




I totally want to see this movie mentioned at the end of the link, I want to know how they approached it. "The 2005 South Korean film Wedding Campaign, directed by Hwang Byung-kook, portrays two aging bachelor farmers from rural villages who hope to find wives. Having no romantic prospects in Korea, they opt to go through an international mail-order bride agency, which sends them to Uzbekistan and tries to match them with Korean women there.[29]"

Miracle And have you ever asked about your real family history?

About the choice in passports - koreans of both sides from Sakhalin (whom japanese brought as a man power from South Korea ) and from Valdivostok regions didn't have any passports during some period from 1937 untill 50-s (Sakhalin even later), nobody could leave their location after 1937 - big repressions of Stalin

It appears we come from all over the world to a certain degree. Which is
interesting. So it's not typically west \Europeon as I thought previosly, and not ex soviet countries, it does vary.. I know for a fact that the west of Europe is decreasing in numbers, and that is probably due to to redtape. Businesses don't apear to have deals here for investment which attracts them, and they are going elsewhere. I would assume the problems arise with the Americans. REDTAPE!

I voted other, as my country wasn't on the list.

It's the Netherlands.

I was born in Zaandam, the town in which Czar Peter the Great stayed for a short while during 1697, in order to be taught the craft of ship-building. Still, a lot of words indicating parts of a ship in Russian are actually Dutch. So are some other words, even bad ones like "durak" (doerak) and slabak.

The Dutch queen is actually a descendant of the Romanov dynasty. A good Russian friend of mine, with the same family name and also a descendant of the same family has almost the same face as our queen.

The Russian-Dutch relations are still very much based on the trade and marine heritage. The largest Dutch oil company is managing one of Russia's largest oil & gas fields, a Dutch company played a major role in recovering the Kursk submarine and the best foreign cheese in Russian supermarkets is Maasdam or Edam.

Two Dutch coaches are leading major Russian soccer teams, with quite a bit of success.

Yet, the Dutch, in this pole are in the "others" league, along with e.g. the Irish who actually managed to have St. Patrick's become a big party in this town.

I thought Peter the great went to UK to learn about building ships and coffins in the UK :) But he he might also have went to the Netherlands for further knowledge, time to do some more googling I think. But I do believe the history of ship and boat belongs a lot to the UK, but yes, perhaps a bit to The Netherlands.

Football originated in the UK, and we hate the word "Soccer" as we didn't invent this word, but the Americans did, to distinguish the difference of their "American protective rugby" to real international football. Football is football in most European languages, including Russian, same as box is boxing in Russian. That's the way it is, and we should stick to the original.

Yes we do use the word soccer now and again, but it normally means either a bit of fun kicking a ball around, or kids playing in a small pitch. But professionally it's football. You cannot have for example Wordcup soccer, as that is poor translation coming from the Chinese selling game for example, and it's one big joke.

It's sometimes debated wheter or not Finland is included in Scandinavia - wikipedia:

In this case, I am some authority that includes Finland :)

No. Baseball is like cricket. Rugby is what Americans would have played, if they weren't too afraid to get hurt. But because they are, they put plastic armour all around them, change some rules and call it football. Talk about a complete lack of imagination! Could have called it hockey, for f&ck's sake, and it would have been just as close.

Now football, is a real men's game, which is played (mostly) with one's feet. You guys call it soccer, because otherwise you would have to admit that you completely f&cked up when naming that protective rugby of yours!

Spot on :) Now why do Americans call an armoured of handball rugby football, and then attempt to call our game football soccer

And what is the difference of the girl's game of rounders called baseball

Is there a difference. Maybe. because they are men, they throw the ball harder. What's the ball made of. Is it like cricket where it is possibly bowled at 160 miles an hour and made of solid wood? LOL the American sports are amixture of what Europe had in the past. Rules slightly change for softies who needed armour.

Many of us are married to Russians here and teaching English privately or for a school or both, as that is all we can do here untill we become fluent in Russian.

However I am aware that there are many extremely wealthy ones of high status living in Rublevka and probably central Moscow, I think they like to keep silent, But I am aware that they are here. Perhaps other Brits can also speak openly, as it is obvious we are the majority of English speakers here at the moment.

LOL! :) They tried it on. Isn't Argentina part of the Ethnics of South America, of whom are mostly dead now? No the Falkands, or as the South Americans chose to call it The Malvenas is British. It has British speaking inhabitants on it. And Argentina chose to invade it, at a time when Britain chose to cut down on military defence they had chosen to take up on this oppurtunity, and invade the Falklands. Of course Britain had to take it back it again. I am surprised that you didn't know about it, as it was major international news at the time.

And boy! were the Americans embarrassed about it! At the time they planning unity with North America with South America. And then they had to put up with whether to support their main ally, or whether to support them. Wel you know the story. Britain got support throughout the world. but they didn't need it. Apart from the assistance of Americans assistance in re-fueling British fighting jets coming from UK to The Falklands. The Americans used planes to fuel those jets to complete their job in the Falklands. There was also satellite intelligannce assistance coming.

But they did it reluctantly. due to public demand coming from their American citizens.

Yes it is is Malinas or Malvena to South Americans. But to Brits it is The Falklands, and the main residents there are English speaking, so what does that tell you. Both countries are right or wrong in taking countries. Argentinians are after all Portuguese aren't they, so what more right do they have. They are very lucky that Britain didn't bother conquering Argentina, so what are they fussing. They have no right being there, just as much as the Brits having an interest in The Falklands. But yet again , the interest is the possible finding of oil. MONEY! MONEY! MONEY! So the Argentinians lost, and ended up being bankrupt. End of story.

Happy holidays. I hope your acting troupe does well. Could you please put me on the dvd list ?

I thought they were Spanish. You are confusing them with the Brazilians.

P.S. I know, those savage colonies are so darn confusing!

Does anyone else find it strange that the results chart shows catagories with 0 still having a little bar? In fact it looks like its about 1/2 the size of the 3. Just thought that was strange. Good to see a wide representation though.
