The Eric (Pena) Earl Family Tree

Updated April 25, 2009

About Our Family Research


I was adopted at birth in 1953. For the next 45 years I was content with the knowledge that a loving Mother and Father had accepted me into their lives.

Unexpectedly, in November of 1998 I was introduced to my biological family via an evening phone call from my biological half-brother, David Earl; coversation came easily and it was obvious that, despite a 45 year absence, I was now one of the family.

Coincidentally, Dave and I had both relocated to the San Francisco Bay Area, so it took no lengthy discussion for us to agree to meet for lunch within a couple of days.

Accompanied by an armload of photo albums, Dave introduced me to my natural Mother and Father (both deceased), two brothers (deceased), two additional living brothers, and a sister.

Since then I have established an excellent relationship with all of my surviving immediate family - and a few cousins (Thanks, Lillian!), participated in an Earl family reunion, and been introduced to the addictive study of genealogy.

Since everyone in the family has freely shared their respective Earl family history files with me so that I could quickly make up for lost time, I'd like to, in turn, do the same for you.

Enjoy.
