Introduction

Genogram Family Analysis - Part I Jana Lewis PSY500/Life Span Development January 31, 2011 Dr. Susan Gamble Genogram Family Analysis When I take a look at my family genogram it is really amazing how much was known on my Dad's side of the family and how little is known about my mother's side of the family. The short of it all is my real mother did not want my brother or myself and left us with our Dad. According to the research my Dad's side of the family has done, I have part Creek Indian from my Grandfather's Mother's side of the family, and Irish from my Grandfather's Father's side of the family. While on my Grandmother's side of the family her mother was full Cherokee Indian and her name was Pearlie Arkansas. The Indian that runs on my Dad's side of the family probably explains why we tan so easily. My Grandfather was one of ten children. ...read more.

Middle

One of my Aunts said it is just a born Wilson trait. My youngest son had the look when he was younger, but has seemed to outgrown it, while my oldest is just starting to have it. Personality or Emotional Traits My Grandfather, Father, one of his sister's and myself are very straightforward people. What you see is what you get. My Grandmother was more of the soft-spoken type preferred not to cause problems. My brother and other Aunt tend to take after her. The one Aunt is out straightforward has two son's one is like herself while the other is soft-spoken. My Aunt that is soft-spoken has all three of her children that are straightforward types as well. When it came to discipline my Grandmother was more of the disciplinarian then my Grandfather. So my Dad followed in his Mother's footsteps and was the disciplinarian, now that had become my job with my own boys, even before I was divorced. ...read more.

Conclusion

(I will let you figure out who did what). No one in the Wilson family has senior, junior, or II added at the end of their name. My Dad did want to have his parents name and his brother's name to live on so my Brother is named Victor Glen Wilson. First name is after our Dad's deceased brother, middle name is our Dad's father's first name. Jana Lea Wilson (Lewis), middle name after our Dad's mother, her name was Leeola. Conclusion For my children with heredity of high blood pressure and diabetes I worry if they too will succumb to these two horrible health issues. My boys Father and his Father both have high blood pressure so in order to change the future of health concerns for my boys a need to address the issue and try to better educate them to change things in their lives can break this cycle of poor health. Eating healthier and exercising can make the differences for them to hopefully break the high blood pressure and diabetes cycle. ?? ?? ?? ??
