A Family Interview

Improved Essays
For the family interview, I decided to meet with one of my friends to interview her about her family. We started by focusing on her whole family tree, including all of her aunts, uncles, and cousins. After we went over the entire family, I asked her questions about the members she has a significant relationship with and asked about their education, occupation, interests, health problems, and friendships. The person that I interviewed is in a serious relationship, so we went over her partner’s family and I asked the same questions about her partner’s family. After finding out the family tree for both the interviewee and her partner, I asked about communities and organizations that they are a part of. This includes school, work, religious organizations, clubs, friendships and other outside communities.
