The strange, twisted vines below represent my family tree. That little berry down at the bottom is me. The vines stretch back through slavery to before the founding of this country. To my family members reading this - can you find your own twig?


  1. Fascinating -- where is slavery? Is it 4 or 5 nodes up, where all the vines have many tendrils coming out of them? I never thought of a visual representation, but . . . it is a "tree."

  2. Hi Mariann,

    Thanks! Slavery starts 5 nodes up in the middle of the page where that one particularly long branch is curling around the other.
