M. Kleinfeld – Week 4 – Kinship Charts

My Kinship Chart

My Kinship Chart has pointed out things I have never really noticed before.

I have noticed that on both sides of my mother’s and father’s families that there is only one divorce on each side.

I also noticed that in both my mother’s and father’s siblings have equal male to female ratio.

I would have to say that both sides of my family are extremely traditional in the sense that they do not divorce and separate often.

My family probably is closest related to the bilateral kinship described in the lecture.
