Essay about family tree – Research essay


In my research paper, I have studied my family tree and have turned up information about people in my family. This information includes things that appear to define them or their character today and/or in the past.

Thelma Griffin: mother of Peter Griffin

The line starts with Thelma Griffin. This is as far back as I could go at this present time. Thelma was the mother of me Peter, and she spent her early years as a waitress and then became a professional gambler. She met my father Mickey during a trip to Ireland where I was conceived. She returned to America shortly after, which is where I was born.

Mickey McFinnigan: father of Peter Griffin

A man of Irish blood, he is still a much-respected town drunk in a small Irish village. He has never visited the USA and was unaware of my birth for many years.

Peter Griffin: me

I am currently a mature student trying to earn my degree in sociology. I have three children, though it is possible that I have more that I am unaware of. I have a wife called Lois Pewterschmidt.

Barbra Hebrewberg: mother of Lois

Barbra is married to Cater Pewterschmidt, and is a wealthy New England mother of Jewish heritage. She is the mother to Lois my wife, to Carol Pewterschmidt and the disowned Patrick Pewterschmidt.

Carter Pewterschmidt: father of Lois

Carter is a New England millionaire and managing director of Pewterschmidt industries. He is a strict Christian and was unaware of his wife’s Hebrew background until years after marrying her.

Stewart Griffin: my son

He is almost two years old and is very advanced for his age. He has already had a short career on stage with a child slightly older than him, and in his short life has visited eleven countries.

Meg Griffin: my daughter

She is an 18-year-old girl that is currently in college. She is generally unpopular although is pure of heart and unfairly treated by most people because she is a plump and unattractive girl that wants to fit in.

Chris Griffin: my son

Chris has a very low IQ and has been held back in high school to help him eventually graduate. He is sixteen and has had reasonable success in finding and keeping jobs, though is accident prone and easily fooled.

Carol Pewterschmidt: sister of Lois

Carol’s defining feature is that she has had over 15 marriages break down, though she is now married to the Mayor of Quahog, a small New England town.

Patrick Pewterschmidt: brother to Lois

He was abandoned at a young age and sent to a psychiatric facility where he still remains. He is believed to have committed heinous crimes due to his inability to get over a childhood trauma that involved a very fat man.


Though my family tree is not a big one, though there are far more entries to it. The family tree I have created goes as far back as I can go given the resources at my disposal.
