Transcript of Big Five Concepts Personal History Project
The most significant event in my family's history is my parents getting married. I think this is most important because if my parents hadn't gotten married then I wouldn't have been born. My parents got married in October 23, 1997 and in April 29, 2000 I was born. This was also a significant event for my grandparents and relatives because it meant that my mother's relatives met my father's relatives and so there was basically a huge family reunion. One piece of historical evidence of my parents' marriage is their wedding album or their marriage certificate. Both are primary sources because the photos in the wedding album were taken at the time of the marriage and the marriage certificate was made at the time of marriage as well.
The second most significant event in my family's history is my grandfather's death. My grandfather died in 1973 due to cancer, when my dad was almost 2 years old. I think this is a significant event in my family's history because my grandparents at the time they were in need of money and since my grandma had to take care of my father and uncle, she used work really hard sewing clothes and trying to make a living. Also if my grandfather had been alive, my dad might not have gotten married to my mom. One piece of historical evidence of my grandfather dying is a death certificate. This is a primary source because it was made at the time of his death.
The third most significant event in my family's history is my parents and I moving to Canada. My parents have to been to many places in search of a steady job and a place to settle. They used to live in Kenya, South Africa and in Tennessee, USA however when we moved to Richmond Hill, Canada we finally settled and bought a home in 2003. I think this is a significant event in my family's history because where we live affects our lifestyle. A piece of historical evidence is my citizenship card of Canada. This will declare when my family moved in Canada and where we lived. This is a primary source because the citizenship card was made when my family came to Canada.
The fourth most important event in my family's history is buying a Mr.Sub. I think this is an important event because this was and is my parents' jobs. When we first came to Canada, we lived in Richmond Hill and bought a Mr.Sub in Oakridge, Toronto. In 2007 we decided to sell that Mr.Sub and buy another one Oakville, as a result we ended up moving again to Burlington. One piece of historical evidence is a certificate that claims that this Mr.Sub is owned by my parents. This is a primary source because the certificate was made when my parents bought the Mr.Sub.
A historical event that I think has a small impact on my family's life is buying a new car. Last November, my mom traded in her old car for a brand new one because the old car required a lot of maintenance and was getting awfully old. When the car was bought there was a big impact on my family's life because that 'new' car was meant to be kept clean and neat. However as days, weeks, and months pass the impact on my family of the 'new' car starts to fade and eventually this car will get all dirty and old and will b replaced by another car. One piece of historical evidence for this is car keys. This is a primary source because the car keys came with the car.
A historical event that I think has the least impact on my family's history is me getting a math award when I graduated in grade 8. I think this event has the least impact on my family's history because although it may have been great at the time it doesn't effect my family's history now at all. One piece of historical evidence is a medal that I got with my name on it. This is a primary source because the medal was given to me when I graduated.

Cause and Consequence
Three causes of my parents and I moving to Canada are:
1. My parents had a lot of experience working in restaurants and fast-food stores and they have tried to settle in USA and South Africa but failed so they came to Canada in search of a home and job. As a result they bought a Mr.Sub in Oakridge, Toronto and they sill own a Mr.Sub.
2. My mom has a lot of relatives including 2 sisters that live in Canada so my parents decided that it was a good idea to get some help and support from my mom's sisters and then settle somewhere near them. As a result they bought a home in Richmond Hill.
3. Canada at the time was growing and its population was expanding. It was much easier and cheaper to find a home and job in Canada than in USA or somewhere in Europe. This caused my parents to make a final decision and live in Canada
If my mom's relatives had decided to go live somewhere else in the World like Europe or USA, then my parents might not have decided to move to Canada and my family might have lived somewhere else.
