How could I expound upon answering the question of, or referring to, to the place where I come from?
Specifically, the country of my birth and previous longterm residence; but without implying either genetic or emotional ties to that place?
Therefore, I am looking for substitutes / corrections for adjectives such as "ursprünglich", the verb "stammen", the noun "Herkunft" (which imply ethnic roots), and "Heimatland" (implies an ongoing personal regard for that place as "home"), to my understanding as a learner.
For this reason, I assert that this is not a duplicate of this: Usage of “von” and “aus” when denoting “Herkunft” (origin) or this: How to say "I come from Beijing, China" in German?
If there are no other single-word alternatives to the above, a sentence I could add in after answering the question, to convey my point of view in the spirit of the German language, would be greatly useful.
