^ I see. So even if I had been born in Germany at that time, I would still be exclusively a US citizen today?

I'm pretty sure that my two nephews are automatically dual citizens of the US and the UK (since my sister is American and her husband is British). But like you said, it varies by country.
It is for the better I think.
While you would have had the right to vote here, you would have been drafted into the Bundeswehr at some point, too, unless you already served in the American military. At least that's what a guy back at school told me who actually had that dual citizenship.

Voted [x] other because I don't care and I sure as fuck don't identify myself as "white".

Kestra's so white, she thinks affirmative action is when John McClane tries to remain positive while he slaughters dozens of bad guys.

I'm 100% English as far back as I know, which is only about 5 generations.

Same here pretty much, been told by my Maternal Grandmother who did some research into her family tree a few years ago that somewhere along the line, there is some Eastern European Jewish blood.

On the whole, I'm not that interested in my family tree, my Fiance though, being Irish and their records office got destroyed for one reason or another in the 1920s, they can't really can't look back much further than that and is really interested in my family tree and from what she can find, both branches have stayed in and around the South of England and Wales as well as the aforementioned Jewish ancestors.

Yeah, our family tree stretches back as far as the memory of my 90 year old grandmother.

I'm a descendant of people the ancient Romans fucked.
That's not saying much, Rome fucked a lot of people! It's sort of what they do.
I had a Medieval history professor who liked to say "We are all Normans." Either because Norman culture is responsible for much of worldwide culture and because "the Normans liked to fuck" so we're all related to them. He was an odd professor.

Unfortunately, German citizenship law doesn't work that way. (Well, at least it didn't at the time. Nowadays it kind of does, but not really.)
I apparently am eligible for Italian citizenship if I go through a huge pain in the ass process that involves tracking down documents I don't own and translating them into Italian. I'm not sure what good that would do me, though.
