    My immediate family is made up of my father Edward, my mother Melaine, and my brother Antorius. I also live with my grandparents William and Mary. I also live very close to most of my family members on my mother’s side. My great-grandfather split his farmland among his eight children. They each got two acres to build a house on for their family. Most of the children still live on the farmland, so I see most of my family members on a daily basis. Everyone in my family is very family-oriented. Because my brother is nine years younger than me, I was always there to help in caring for him. Both of my parents work long hours, so I was responsible for helping my brother with his homework when we got home from school. Also, when I was old enough…

    “Family is everything.” I am not sure that I’ve ever heard any of my relatives utter this phrase, but I know that is a sentiment shared by all of them. To call my family “big” would be an understatement. My mother was the seventh of the twelve children born to my grandparents Hugh and Roberta. She married my father in the 80’s and they had ten children, I am the third oldest. On my mother’s side there are more than sixty grandchildren. My dad is fourth of six children born too my grandparents…

    Family has a unique meaning no matter what culture it possibly can be. I never had a chance to meet my extended family from my mother’s side because her parents passed away before I was born and she was the only child in her household. I grew up with only spending parts of the day with my father and the other half with my mother. Other peers in places that I would go to school with thought my family was together because they were more involved in what I liked to do when I was younger. When I was…

They owned a big part of land and were farmers. Lucille was born on a snowy night in nineteen-twenty inside their barn. When she was in her late teens she met a military man. In the beginning of World War II, they got…

    Family Groups Oddly enough my own side of the extended family, I would consider to be both a secondary group and my out-group. First of all, the vast majority of them have passed away. My mother and father are gone, as well as my beloved grandfather, and the only cousins in my family that I ever wished to associate with. Secondly, the remaining family members are volatile and have a negative impact on my life and my children’s lives, hence why I choose to keep them as far away as possible. They…

    The oldest living relative in my family is my Grandmother Lou on my mother’s side. All of my other grandparents on my mother and father’s side have passed on. I called my Grandma Lou and asked her about my ancestors. She proceeded to tell me about how we have a book that goes way back and traces our ancestors but, sometime admit the chaos of life, it has been misplaced. My Grandma Lou said she would tell me the most she can remember about my ancestors and hopefully that will do. He was french…

    To some people the definition of family is very standard: a mother, a father, and a few children. My family was far different than that, with the clashing of three different families into one. We never saw each other as half or step, we only saw each other as family. Family isn’t made from entirely blood and nothing else. Family is loving one another regardless of the mistakes, conflicts, or anything in between. Our family fit the definition of all of this and then some. Even though our…
