    Most of my relatives are close in comparison to a lot of you. At one time I lived in South Africa when most of my family are in England, and one of my cousins moved to Sri Lanka for a couple of years. Right now though we're all either in the UK, Spain or Ireland, which is no distance at all. People can live at opposite ends of California and be further apart.

    Most of my relatives are here in California; I'm a 5th generation Californian on my mom's side. But I do have some relatives in Provence, France, as well as the Netherlands.

    My sister may be moving to Australia after college, so that will be pretty far from all of us!

    Most of us have pretty much settled in the states. At one point we were in Taiwan, grandparents in California and DC with closest cousins in Tel Aviv.

    I live in the Boston suburbs. In terms of immediate family my sister lives in Seattle but is moving soon.

    Most of my family lives in Connecticut and New York. I have relatives in Florida and Israel. Basically the major hotspots for Jews.
