We'll take a look at theones of Julia and Joseph Olsonawski. Going forwards and backwards. Julia'sparents were Joseph and Ann Vunk they were from the Old country. Theirchildren were Joe, John, Fete, Nelly, and Julia. Joe never got married. Nelly never got married. She is blind and is in a hospital in Winnipeg,Manitoba. John got married and has two boys.

Steven and his wife had seven children. William andwife had two children. Fillex got married they adopted two children. Edand his wife had one child. Vincent got married and wasn't so lucky ofhaving his own children so they adopted three children. Rosey was luckygot married and had three children. Hellen had five children.

some people think this is a large family. And some thinkit is a small family. Just think it will be getting bigger and bigger.And it all started with one man and one woman. So we are all related. In the future people will be coming out of tubes. And they won't be relatedin the way people are today. So be glad you have the parents you have andthe relatives you have.
