Mine for instance:

My dad's side of the family has quite a history with alcoholism. Dad's been sober and had his act together for ~15 years, and everyone is either an alcoholic or recovering alcoholic. But just to give examples of how bad they were, my Grandpa drank at least 17 cans of beer daily, and at most 28. He was only sober in the early mornings. And his brother was a veteran who was even worse of an alcoholic, and when he ran out of beer, he had developed an immunity to cologne and would drink that. My dad, and all but one of his 5 siblings have been to jail for D.U.I.'s at least once. Needless to say, I know I should stay away from alcohol.

Post interesting facts about your family and relatives.

My uncle was the CFO for Northwest Airlines from late 2007 until just recently, and is a multi-millionaire (or billionaire, I honestly have no idea, he apparently can't talk about what he does now exactly, but the dude has money out of the ass).

I guess that's kind of interesting.

Oh, and I just found out a month ago that my sister isn't really my full sister, only my half sister, and that my sisters real dad dumped my mom after she got pregnant (she was 14) and my dad stepped in to help and shit, thus becoming my sisters "dad" of sorts.

I was kind of pissed nobody had told me this before, but then again it's not really something that comes up in conversation.

I guess that's also a little interesting.

Also my great uncle owns a water company in Wisconsin.

Mom doesn't celebrate Halloween, because that's the day her brother shot himself.

EDIT: Oh, and my cousin is in jail for life after drunkenly running someone over, killing them accidentally, then speeding away with the poor girls purse still stuck to her front bumper. Not really interesting as it is sad.

God, the only interesting things about my family are depressing things.

EDIT: I REMEMBERED SOMETHING ACTUALLY INTERESTING!!!!

My grandmothers aunt's family used to eat dinner with Ed Gyne! The serial killer! He brought them meat to cook that was probably people!

MY FAMILY ISN'T COMPLETELY UNINTERESTING!


EDIT: And not my family, but my friends cousin is Cameron Diaz.

My great grandfather on my Mom's side was either 99 and just a few days from 100 when he died, or he just turned 100 a few days before he died. I'm not entirely sure which one it is. Only interesting thing I can think of at the moment.

My mom's side of the family can be traced back to Priscilla Alden or however the hell it's spelled, and my dad and grandpa are pretty convinced that his side of the family are related to Alexander Graham Bell. It's probably bullshit, but it's cool to think about.

mom's side:

my great uncle killed a guy in a bar room brawl.

some cousins of mine are in prison. well, I know of at least one. he got raided a few months back and got a parole violation.

my great grandfather came here illegally from Greece, went to Harvard, got a medical degree, and was eventually driven to insanity by being hounded by the FBI for his questionable practices. well, the schizophrenia didn't help, either.

I have a great uncle who's a Mormon bishop.

dad's side:

don't know. my grandma was from Louisiana, and he thinks his father was from Spain.

I also have two French last names. one's the adopted name of another great grandfather, and one's a slave name (or a borrowed name).

Sometimes my dad tells me stories about when he worked in prison. He worked in the Recreation department, organizing activities for the inmates. He said he met some guy who claimed to be on the Czechoslovakia Soccer team, but he got busted for dealing coke in Chicago and ended up playing prison soccer with Mexicans.

He worked at Menard prison the same time John Wayne Gacy was there on death row. He said he painted clowns all the time. Apparently he was a real douche to the guy that brought him paints and supplies, though my dad never met him.

My great-great-great somewhere up the line grandfather is George Rogers Clark, who was a Revolutionary war hero and the brother of William Clark (of the Lewis and Clark expedition). Uhhh... my great uncle on my mom's side owns (or owned, not sure) a big silver mine in Peru and is a multi-millionaire.

I have had three grandfathers and all three were in World War II (one grandfather was through marriage.)
My dad's dad was in the Canadian Navy and sailed around the Hudson Bay for two weeks just so the Canadian Navy could use him because he owned the largest insurance company in all of North America.
My mum's dad landed on D-Day, fought in the Battle of the Bulge was a POW and was also lost in French countryside for 40 days before being captured. He also traded a German soldier for a pencil drawing of himself (my grandfather) for two cigarettes, the picture is damn good too. During the Battle of the Bulge (he was the third officer after Patton, I think, he was very high up in command) he was wounded in battle, and lay underneath dead soldiers in his squad for days (we're not sure how many) before the military came to collect the dead and found him still alive. (He's my favourite grandfather.) Many other stories about him too.
My mum's father-in-law was in the Air Force and flew a bomber plane over in the East (fighting on the islands, with Japan.) Don't know what kind of plane(s) he flew because I hardly ever talked to him, and they were only married a few years before he died.


My dad was born in 1940, is now 70 years old, and remembers getting a television in his house when he was young and it being the coolest thing ever. He remembers having an 'icebox' where they had to have ice delivered to keep things cold, and ONLY LIKES BLUEGRASS, SHOW TUNES, AND ORCHESTRA MUSIC. Plus he plays the upright bass.

Well, if you search my last name on Facebook, the majority of people you get are black. Why? Because my family had a plantation hundreds of years ago, and when their workers didn't have last names suitable for 'modern' times, they were given the last name of their master. They reproduced, passed on the name, spread out eventually, etc.

My great aunts husband trained air bud. My cousin is in a band and the rhythm guitarist is cousins with Matt Kuykendall (ex-All Shall Perish drummer for those of you who don't know). That's pretty much it.

Most of my cousins are actually my uncles. We only call each other cousins cause were all around each others age. One of my cousins is actually just a family friend.

My grandfather has seven children with my grandmother and 20+ children with various other women.

One of my grandmas brothers recently passed out drunk on his porch and was washed away by a hurricane.

I've had a few relatives pass away from heavy drinking.

On my mum's side, my great-great-great grandfather was a whaler, and was on the crew of the Terra Nova both times they had to rescue Scott from the Antarctic.
One generation later, a great-great uncle was a professional footballer, and won one of the Scottish leagues with Clyde in the 1913/14 season. He broke his tib& fib in the trenches and inhaled some mustard gas and was bedridden for the final 10 years of his life.
One of my great uncles was a merchant sailor in WW2; his ship was sunk by a U-boat crossing the Atlantic.
Another great uncle was in the BEF in WW2. According to his ration book, he left France on June 4th 1940, and was back in France on May 6th 1944(though IIRC he landed on the evening tide, once the beach was secure).
On my dad's side, his dad was a typesetter(reserved occupation), but he volunteered and fought in Italy.
About it, really.

I am directly related to Wyatt Earp. My dad has 11 toes, and so will my grandson. I'm directly related to the Honeywell family (big company that makes alarms and stuff), but they were being really selfish (not helping pay for our hospital bills when someone had cancer), so we changed our name to Williams.
