Cultural Dictionary
ethnicity [(eth- nis -uh-tee)]

Identity with or membership in a particular racial, national, or cultural group and observance of that group's customs, beliefs, and language.


World English Dictionary
heritage (***712;h***603;r***618;t***618;d***658;)

***8212; n
1. something inherited at birth, such as personal characteristics, status, and possessions
2. anything that has been transmitted from the past or handed down by tradition

Those are the definitions I found, I think it is a bit confusing using those words.

However as for what you "call" yourself. IMO, f you are born in America you are American, if you are born in Germany, you are German (excluding cases such as being born to a military family stationed in another country.) If you are German, and you move to America and become a citizen here, you are then German-American.
