I have to add to this too. Makes me happy the Greek family is growing, both by new members and new discoveries of other family members.

Me - Theta
My sister - Delta Gamma
Our first cousin - Pi Beta Phi
First cousin's daughter - Chi Omega (Fall 2016)
Great Aunt - Alpha Chi Omega
Great Uncle (Whom I never met) - Sigma Alpha Epsilon
Mom's cousin - Alpha Phi
Daughter of another of Mom's cousins - Alpha Phi
Daughter of yet another cousin - Theta Phi Alpha


Ex husband's cousin #1 - Tau Beta Sigma and I think SAI
Ex's cousins #2 & #3 - Zeta Pi Lambda (local sorority at Capital University, they chose not to affiliate with ASA when the local was absorbed a few years or so ago).
Ex's cousin #4 - Kappa Phi Omega (local sorority at Otterbein)
Ex's cousin #5 - Alpha Omicron Pi

Our extended family is large and educated, meaning there are more than a few fraternity and sorority members among the throng. Here are the groups to which I am currently aware someone in my family belongs:

Fraternities:

Phi Gamma Delta (2)
Sigma Alpha Epsilon
Theta Chi
Lambda Chi Alpha
a local which later became Tau Kappa Epsilon

Sororities:

Alpha Xi Delta
Kappa Alpha Theta (2)
Alpha Gamma Delta
Kappa Kappa Gamma (2)
Alpha Omicron Pi (2)
Pi Beta Phi (2)
Delta Zeta
Delta Delta Delta
either Alpha Chi Omega or Chi Omega
Chi Sigma Xi

We are also very proud of at least one female member of Phi Beta Kappa.

Couldn't forget a dear uncle (added above) I inherited two of his pledge books and his Bid Card. Wish I had one of his paddles!

Also want to add: years ago on GC someone posted photo of a partial composite from my cousin's fraternity chapter that included his picture. I've always wondered if that poster were my cousin, but I've never asked him.

Besides myself:
Cousin, dad's side-Kappa Delta, University of Illinois
