One trend I’ve noticed with my kinship chart is that for both my parents, all of their brothers and sisters are married, and none have had any divorces. Although no divorces or remarriages are shown here, there are some divorces and remarriages by my parent’s cousins. Another trend is that I have a lot more cousins on my father’s side than on my mother’s side. A third trend worth noting is the smaller family size, with 2 or 3 children each in a family in my generation compared to the 3-4 kids a family in my parent’s generation. The only birth that is out of the ordinary trend is the illegitimate birth on my father’s side represented by the lightning bolt.
