An 87-year-old in the Ukraine has 346 living descendants. Can anyone top that?
Pavel Semenyuk, 87, always dreamed of a large family and was thrilled when his late wife gave birth to 13 children. Many births and marriages later, the Semenyuk clan stands at a whopping 346 living descendants, with the youngest member just two-weeks-old.
Mr. Semenyuk now has 13 living children, 127 grandchildren (each child had approximately 10 children?), 203 great-grandchildren and even three great-great-grandchildren. ‘I know the names of those who are older. But I often cannot remember the names of the young ones,’ Pavel said.
If anyone in the Semenyuk family is keeping records in a genealogy program, I hope he or she has a very large hard drive in which to store all the data! The records of the Semenyuk family are being submitted to Guinness World Records.
