Family background (=family history).

My grandfather was a market gardener in Ireland. He grew flowers, fruit and vegetables, and sold them in the market every day. He worked hard all his life and when he died, his son (now my uncle) and daughter (my mother) inherited a large house and a garden (received this house and garden from my grandfather when he died). They carried on business together until my mother met my father. They got married, moved to England, and I was born two years later. They didn’t have any more children, so I’m the only child.

 

Family names

When you are born, your family gives you a first name, e.g. James, Kate, Sarah and Alex are common first names in Britain. Your family name (also called your surname) is the one that the entire family share e.g. Smith, Brown, Jones, and O’Neill are common surnames in Britain. Some parents give their children a middle name, but you do not usually say this name in Britain unlike in Ukraine. Your full name is all the names you have, e.g. Sarah Jane Smith.

 

Changing times

Society changes and so do families. In small places, people may decide to live together but do not get married. They are not husband and wife but call each other their partner. There are also many families in some parts of the world where the child or children live(s) with just their mother or father; those are sometimes called single-parent families.
