Instruction #1: (you can add any name for the family member) the first page should be Prepare a genogram of your family of orientation (the family you were born into, not the family you created upon adulthood for those now in family arrangements) using the description and illustration in selected websites listed below.
Selected Websites:

Your genogram should include you, your parents, your grandparents, your great-grandparents (that is primary, secondary and tertiary level relatives), your siblings, and any other relatives you would like to include (such as aunts, uncles, cousins, etc.). You may not know all the names of all of your relatives or related information but you must still account for where they would be in your genogram. Just have a space for that person and say great-grandfather (for instance) unknown. Also, be sure to include a key or legend so I know what all your marks, lines, etc. reflect.

As a general layout you can use the following (or use whatever format/layout you would like):

2nd part of the assignment: use 2 pages to answer What is a genogram? What are some uses of a genogram? How does it differ from a family tree?
Examine your kinship system – define/describe all the parts of your kinship structure per your maternal & paternal side(s) – Use as many key terms as possible in your description and highlight each.
Which side of your family was easier to trace? Why?
What did you learn from doing your family’s genogram?

3rd instruction: I attached the key term use as much as you can.
