Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
... and what of the counties where largest ancestry is defined as "American"?

Special creation?

"Don't know"?

Mostly the mountain regions... Perhaps the answer to the ancestry question is "each other"...
