Original Memory Interview Question

How do you think your life growing up was different than what goes on today in a child's life?


His Response:

Children today are 'spoiled brats' direct quote from my Mother.

Well I would say this much, there are some kids who have been given everything and had to earn nothing and that is why they do not like it when they find out to make a living as an Adult they have to actually work. As a child I was given a small allowance from my Dad but as I got older I had to do chores or I didn't get the allowance at all. As I got older I started working part time after school to make extra money to help out the family as my father had lost his job and we were not poor but we were struggling to keep the bills paid monthly. Every time I was given my allowance I was told I had to give back some to my favorite charity and some to the church poor box ans some I had to save then the rest I could spend. Kids today do not get that same sense of responsibility as we did because they are given too many options for everything it is a 'Multiple Choice' life for them we were given less choices.

Original Memory Interview Question

Did you parents have anyone they knew who were also starting families at around the time you were born? Did you guys all hang out together as young kids?


His Response:

Cousins...we had many of them who came up from either New Brunswick or Nova Scotia and some came to live with us part time in the summertime. My Mother said that when she was pregnant with me my Aunt was also pregnant with my cousin who came 12 days after my birth and even today will let everyone know we are cousins and have birthdays the same month.

Original Memory Interview Question

Did you look like anyone else in your family? What are some unique genetic traits that run in your family?


His Response:

I have never looked all that much like most of the rest of my family for several reasons one being that I have many Half-Siblings (same Mother different Father) and because I take much of my looks from the Matriarchal side of my family. I look almost identical to what my Grandfather looked like at my age according to my mother and her sisters. I do also have some of my father's looks but they are less noticeable then the obvious resemblance that I have to my Grandfather.

Original Memory Interview Question

What types of family traditions did you experience at a very early age?


His Response:

We had a tradition of monthly family gatherings hosted at different relatives houses each month unless it was a month that also held a major holiday like Christmas or Easter and in that case it was usually held by my grandmother at her home. We were a very matriarchal family run by the female members of the family like my Grandmother, or an Aunt, or my Mother.
