We've mapped communities in the continental U.S. by heritage, showing the places with the highest proportions of Greeks, Swiss and 103 other ethnic groups to help you start your ancestry search.
ePodunk's ancestry census section is based on data from the 2000 Census Long Form, which asked one in six U.S. households to identify their "heritage, ethnic origin, descent, or close identification with an ethnic group."
About 80 percent of Americans said they had one or two ancestral backgrounds, and each ancestry listed in our section was reported as a first choice by at least 100,000 people.
The links at right lead to information about 105 groups, with additional information resources on each page. Epodunk is the place to start your ancestry search.
