Amy Johnson Crow challenges us to remember our ancestors and their families through this task: 52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks. I completed ’52 Ancestors’ in 2014 & here I go again. This post is in response to that challenge. The topic for this week is ‘LARGE FAMILY.
52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks: LARGE FAMILY
What is considered a large family? It depends on the year, the generation.My brother & I have three children each. My father & most of his siblings had four children each. I went to my families on my Family Tree Maker Program and looked for the largest family in each generation in my direct line.
My Great Grandparents
Leopold & Fannie (Edelstein) Gardner 5 Children
My Great Great Grandparents
Markusz S. & Devorah (Horn) Gartner 7 Children
Adolph & Netty (Grofs) Edelstein 6 Children
**William Mark also had two more children, with his first wife.
