"However, if Araminta was Walburga's first cousin, it can be presumed that she was related through Walburga's mother, Irma Black (née Crabbe), as Walburga's father, Pollux Black, had three siblings, of whom only his sister Dorea married and had a son." I clearly don't understand this sentence: there's no reason than family Crabbe is all reported on the black family tree so this is not possible, isn't it ? --18:54, August 11, 2011 (UTC)
It is possible that Araminta's parent was a sibbling of Irma --Rodolphus 19:01, August 11, 2011 (UTC)
No it's not possible. Irma is not née Black, there's no chance her family to be written on the tree, she's only written because she is married to a Black, but her sisters or brothers or others are not on the tree. I don't undertand your logic at all. --19:22, August 11, 2011 (UTC)
I agree with User:Famini71. I have a theory concerning Araminta Meliflua's identity. In the Black family tree tapestry, they appear all the people with the Black surname and the sons or daughters of a female Black(like Draco Malfoy). Sirius labeled Arthur Weasley as his seond cousin "once removed". When Sirius mentioned Araminta to Harry, he did not labeled her as a "removed" cousin of his mother's. This means that she was on Walburga Black's same generation, thus, that she was Walburga's first or second cousin, so, she could not have been Herbert and Belvina Burke's daughter.
It is more likely that she was Callidora Black or Charis Black's daughter. Nonetheless there was no relation ever mentioned between Araminta with the Longbottom family and the Longbottoms family were never considered supremacist. So, in my opinion, Araminta was one of Charis and Caspar Crouch's daughters, married with a man member of the Meliflua family and sister of Bartemius Crouch Sr.
Also, I think that Araminta was member of the Wizengamot or at least a high officer within the Ministry of Magic, since she herself proposed a Ministry Bill, which was going to make Muggle hunting, legal. Phoenix Arcturus Black 21:16, November 1, 2011 (UTC)
While I think this might be slightly out there, could it be possible that Araminta was married to a cousin of Walburga? If the "son of Dorea and Charlus" is not James, then Araminta may be married to that man and be a "cousin-in-law" of Sirius. He didn't specify that Elladora was a great-aunt, he just called her "Aunt Elladora" so could have been doing the same thing for Araminta. HarryPotterRules1 (talk) 09:25, February 9, 2013 (UTC)
