Mixed America’s Family Trees

The New York Times has developed an interactive feature on family trees in response to the demographic shift that is currently happening in the United States.  Driven by immigration and intermarriage, multiracial and multiethnic Americans – usually grouped together as “mixed race” – are one of the country’s fastest growing demographics.    Three diverse families, including the Lopez-Mullins Family, the Mateus Family, and the family of  actor Lou Diamond Phillips, are featured with photographs and audio.  Readers are encouraged to post their own family tree.
