Family (my side)

OK. to make it short, which it isn't, but a precis then.

I have:

  • one sister (maybe more, as my biological father appears to have fathered more children in a later marriage, but we don't go there, as I haven't seen him since.. well, before I was 4, possibly younger than that.) , an one brother-in-law.
  • 2 Aunts and an Uncle on my mother's side (with attending/matching/married two Uncles and an Aunt, and 7 cousin kids),
  • 1 Uncle and 4 aunts on my Dad's side (the current married total of matching Aunts and Uncles is 2 uncles, with one aunt deceased, one uncle divorced, and one uncle I'm not sure if he's deceased, but he was divorced prior to that, not to mention the 12 cousins.)
  • Really not to mention the cousins various spouses, partners, significant others, and ensuing children, although I take a stab at it below.
  • Also, my biological father has a surviving mother, Grandma R, who I was in contact with a lot for a while, but haven't seen or contacted for over 8 years now, and a raft of brothers and sisters, who have husbands and wives and kids, adding to the already very large tally of Aunts, Uncles and first cousins. Some of which I know, most of which I don't. Some of which, I understand, live in the US, which could be interesting if I chose to follow that up. Which I haven't, up til now. There's nothing cliff-hangery about that, up til now moves to the day after and so on.

Mum - my Mum

Dad - my Dad (married my Mum and adopted me when I was 4, so he's my Dad)

Family (Jeff's side)

And then there's Jeff. Although he's related to half this county, and several surrounding counties via second cousins and offshoots (Mom & Pop relatives), his immediate family is really quite easy (relatively speaking) to detail. He has;

  • two brothers and a sister, with attending wives and husbands, plus one brother's ex wife in another country, 2 nieces and 3 nephews in this country, and 2 nieces (that I've not met or been in contact with, and Jeff hasn't seen since 1988) in the other country with the brother's ex-wife
  • one never married uncle (on Pop's side)
  • one aunt, with husband (on Mom's side), and two daughters, one with a husband and two kids.
  • the other relatives are all second cousins and offshoots, and if I have to mention them specifically, I'll work out initials for them when that happens.
