Mothers look back on the joys and tears of raising a large family.
In response to my post, A Quebec Family Portrait, Quebecer Georges Allaire writes, "Not all Quebec families fit present standards."
Here’s a nice change. Usually it is Christian families causing a sensation by having extra large families (Remember the Duggar family of Arkansas? More about them later.) But this story in the New York Times is about a Hasidic Jewish woman who died last month aged 93 leaving probably 2000 living descendants.
We have featured a couple of very large families on MercatorNet -- a
New Zealand family with 14 children
and a Spanish family with 15 (now 16)
both are outstripped by the Duggar family of Tontitown, Arkansas.
