Where Did I Come From?

This is a map depicting the ancestry of my family, both past and present. There is quite a lot that is still unknown about my family's past, especially with my paternal grandmother's side as my grandmother passed away at age 50. I hope that viewing the map is an enjoyable experience, getting to see just how diverse my family tree is.


The blue stars represent my Paternal Grandfather's ancestry while the blue points represent my Paternal Grandmother's ancestry. The blue squares represent where in the world my father's extended family currently resides.

The coral stars represent my Maternal Grandfather's ancestry while the coral points represent my Maternal Grandmother's ancestry. The coral squares represent where in the world my mother's extended family currently resides.

The yellow square represents where my soon to be in-laws reside and the yellow point represents where they are from.

The purple points represent my immediate family, where we were born and live today.

Road Trip to Cali

Everyone loves a good cross country road trip. This is a map of a road trip I planned for my best friend and myself to take after graduation. we start in Boston and cross 12 states on our way to California. On the map you can see our beginning and ending locations, our stops- highlighting my love for baseball and her love for haunted places. All together it would take us five days to drive to Las Angeles while stopping at these locations. After crunching numbers for hotels and camp sights as well as the plane ticket back plus all other expenses we would need we decided that to do this road trip we each needed to raise $2,000.

Bridgewater Triangle,-71.3649804,10z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m2!6m1!1s1aQUJOeYCjHqRTujSGd9UdwAHEps?hl=en

Mysterious enough to receive the title, the Bridgewater triangle(Bermuda triangle reference), this area in Southeastern Mass has been home to many bizarre and mysterious events. Supposed UFO and bigfoot sightings along with numerous reports of hauntings, murders and mysterious events, and even cult activity has given this area the unnerving reputation it deserves. The area has several zones where abnormal negative energy exists.
