My Family Tree

Page history last edited by PBworks 12 years, 7 months ago

While in anthropology, I remember sitting there spacing out, while the teacher discussed kinship diagrams.

She then assigned everyone to create a kinshipdiagram of their own families. From this expirience, I learned

that I have a pretty large family when drawn out on paper. From there I had a discussion with my parents

seperatly about their families. After a long rough mathematic section while throwing caution into the wind,

here is what I found:












Year of birth/Age of aunts on mothers side:

Aunt Christine: 1952, 55

Aunt Margaret: 1964, 43


Year of birth/Age of uncles on mothers side:

Uncle Lawrence: 1953, 54

Uncle Raymond: 1957, 50

Uncle Ronald: 1963, 44


Year of birth/Age of My Mother:

Mom (Janet): 1953, 54




Year of birth/Age of aunts on fathers side:

Aunt Elly: 1955, 52

Aunt Nidia: 1957, 50

Aunt Mona: 1946, 61



Year of birth/Age of uncles on fathers side:

Uncle Pete: 1949, 58

Uncle Lordi: 1952, 55

Uncle Armondo: 1954, 53

Uncle Robert, 1956, 51




Year of birth/Age of my dad:

Dad (Airell): 1951, 56




To summarize, I discovered that every single one of my aunts/uncles were born during the period of the baby boom. Starting with my oldest aunt who was born in 1946 and ending with my youngest uncle who was born in 1964,my grandparents offspring were all results of the baby boom.

Although I could not find much about my grandparents, I did learn however that my mothers father was a corporal soldier in WWII. I also learned that he did in fact fight in the war, which I never knew, and was stationed in California, Italy and Germany, which I also did not know. And so, piecing the unspoken facts together he returned home to my grandmother and they made babies, like so many other soldiers at this time did.

I also found out that my fathers parents were married in Puerto Rico and immigrated to the U.S. with one of the first waves of Puerto Ricans to do so. Apparently they were searching for job oppertunities in America, settled down and began a family.
