    • I have a very large family from my mothers side I know the family very well but from my dads not so much.

    • I am very fortunate to know where I come from because my family is so large.

      • I know the names of my great great-grandparents parents
      • know my grandparents history
      • know all of my grandparents brothers and sisters (from moms side)
      • I have lived with my mother 19 years for that reason I know my history from her said of the family very well.

            • I lived with my dad till I was two
            • my mom would always show me pictures of family
            • had a Ibarra family reunion in 2003
          • My dad has not always been in my life because he is always busy working even though I am his only daughter.

            • I only know my dads brothers, sister, and parents
            • dad only has two kids (my brother from another mother and me)
            • dad has his own business
          • Family is where life begins and love never ends.
            Not may people are lucky to know their roots and should really try and learn where they come from.
            Not only because it is interesting to know where you come from but because you have that history and can pass it on to your future kids. No one has a perfect family and should always want to keep in touch. Some families don’t have the privilege to stay in touch because of whatever reason and just stop talking, so then your kids or grandkids won’t meet there cousins and aunts. Our family may not have it all together, but together we have it all.
