Nationalities does not equate to ethnicities. Most countries have hundreds of ethnicities; the U.S. & U.S.S.R. each have thousands of ethnicities. No one is 100% anything, or full anything, however you wish to phrase it. You can say (but you didn't) that they had Italian or Lithuanian or French or Polish citizenship, but that is a far cry from what you said. I have Italian ancestors that removed to Italy from France and Sicilian ancestors who removed there from Albania. They were all Italians. You are 1/2 of each parent (roughly speaking) so from your mother's side, You would be 3/8 (37.5%) Italian, 12.5% Lithuanian and from your father's side, you would be 25% French and 25% Polish. We can guess at what you mean, but it is much simpler, avoids arguments, if you simply state what you actually mean.
