Re: How many children make a large family in CH?

That's a family bush. I'm also from one of these. My mother is one of nine and I have around 34 cousins. That's just my mothers side. We haven't really looked at my dad's side for fear of ending up with uncle-cousins or cousin-grandmas.
Thats the problem with not having a television...

I haven't counted my cousins - often get lost - cant remember names..
I do know that there are about 7 with some form of "Alexander" if you include Sascha & Alistair.

When you also take into consideration first and second wives its gets really confusing.

My eldest cousins grandkids are the same age as mine

Nowerdays where people are less likely to marry "just because" they are going to have a child, you can also get into the complication of multiple fathers and mothers...

You don't look nearly old enough to have grandkids.

Re: How many children make a large family in CH?

We have three and I think where we were living before we certainly were known as the 'Aussie' family with three kids!

At the moment, though, we so rarely go anywhere with all 5 of us, that I think some of our local shopkeepers and bus drivers would probably get surprised if they saw us together as a whole family...

My mum's one of 12, all surviving. My grandma is 93 this year, and still has all her 'marbles' - I think there are about 38 Grandkids and 18 Great-grandkids, and counting! - when we are all counted, there would be more than 100 of us in the extended family...and everyone knows everyone because we hold a 'family reunion' for one week every second christmas...
