Masaman asks, “What’s the difference between the terms race, ethnicity, culture, ancestry, heritage, nationality and other terms that seem like they all should more or less be discussing the same thing?”
I’ve written about this before, including:
- Ethnicity, Nationality, Race, Identity, Culture & Heritage (Feb. 9, 2019).
- Changing Ethnicity (Feb. 20, 2019).
I come back to this subject over and over because it’s often a stumbling block for genealogists. Someone who doesn’t understand the differences will end up making mistakes when they interpret DNA results, and — very often — become confused about whether their own identity.
I’m going to keep posting and posting and posting.
