Family reunion Ong Jap Lik, Haarlem 2005

Taken: 24 April 2005, Haarlem, The Netherlands. Making pictures of big groups is hard.

* About 200 people attended (including in-law’s and boyfriends/girlfriends).
* Descendants from Ong Jap Lik and his wife (first generation).
* Descendants from Ong Jap Lik’s 8 children were present.
* Most people present were from the 5th child, second most from the 1st child.
* Family spanning 3 or 4 generations were present.
* I’m one of the people of the 7th generation, related through my mum’s side.
* Most of the people attending were from the Netherlands.
* There were people from the United States, Belgium, Canada, Indonesia, Singapore, England and France.

I’ve seen a lot of familiar faces, but more new faces. I still have regular contact with a lot of my far cousins.

    Family reunions are so cool! Some families are so big that they can’t be together at the same place and time, but at reunions everyone comes (well mostly hehe) and it’s great to see eachother. We had our family reunion at a pancake house. ^_^

    Wow…. this is one of the best moment in life. I am so glad that your whole family are gathered in one place. It’s really hard in these days to get everyone dedicated to one event. Also, with family like this big, this is amazing. I wish I have this big big family. Both sides of my family can only add up to… hum… no more than 15 people…. I have never have an experience with this big.. wow… I am so glad for you. 😀

    I think it’s just so amazing that your whole family gathered together in one place. My extended families (mom and dad’s side) are also that large but we can never get everyone together at the same time 😐
