Beatrice Valdez has nearly 200 descendants, and nephews she's never even heard of.
[Beatrice's daughter] Teve remembers when her brother, Ernest, fought another third-grader in elementary school. Notes were sent home, and the parents of both boys showed up to assess the damage.
Beatrice and Fred arrived at the school. And so did Uncle Victor, Fred’s brother: Ernest had beat up his own cousin.
“We didn’t even know this kid existed,” Teve said. [Link]
