other Germanic peoples - understandable
but Czechs, French, etc.? Germans are related to half of Europe, I'm not denying that. But if so, why not include the Turks, Russians, Italians, or even Chinese because I'm pretty sure there is a German woman who fucked with a Chinese and gave birth to a child that now perceives itself as German in Germany? Therefore, my suggestion is to keep it simple.Ernio48 (talk) 10:56, 3 February 2018 (UTC)
The whole thing about ethnic Germans is nationalistic nonsense.
Germans are Germans due to the culture and language they speak or due to citizenship. There are no genes or something that can be used to differentiate "Germans" from the French, the Danish, Austrian, or Polish. If you look at the "sources" cited then it is readily apparent that they do not make any claim that Germans are an ethnic group. -- Preceding unsigned comment added by 2003:D2:970E:8577:7164:FEA1:539F:37DE (talk) 10:58, 3 July 2018 (UTC)
I think there are technically more Australians of German descent than there are Brazilians, although I can't find immediately find a source on that. Sure, Brazil is the bigger of the two countries but I recall reading that more Germans migrated to Australia with the promise of free land and economic opportunities than Brazil, and that their government really pushed to bring Germans down under. -- Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 19:55, 24 February 2018 (UTC)

300'000 german live in Switzerland http://www.deutsch-schweiz.ch/home In der Schweiz leben offiziel 300.000 Deutsche jedoch sind die Deutschen mit Schweizer Pass und die Grenzgänger nicht in der Statistik berücksichtig, dann wären es ca. 500.000. "Officially 300,000 Germans live in Switzerland However, the Germans with Swiss passport and the frontier workers are not included in the statistics, then it would be about 500,000." -- Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 14:20, 24 August 2018 (UTC)
