My family is quite large we all come together for Christmas all 32 grandchildren on my father's side of the family. We also all come together for Labor Day. My family is quite close. Even though there is over 500 of us, but we do not see all of them at the same time.
My family is quite interesting because there is two sets of double cousins. You may ask how that happened. It is quite easy two sister married two brothers and two other sisters married two other brothers. Also my grandmother madden name was Meier and she married a Meier, but they not related.
My mother's side is quite small she only has 5 brothers and sisters while my father comes from a family 13 and only 11 are still alive. But my mother side is still is very close too. We come together more than my father's does because it is easier to come together.
The farthest I can go back about my family is my great, great, great Grandfather whose name was Hasilew Malgue. He lived on the border of Germany and Russia. My family all came from Germany excepts my Great Grandfather on my Mother's side who was a French Canadian Native American.
