Moll 50th Aniversary Reunion

Moll family, August 2003

In August 1953, Gerrit Moll, his wife Johanna, and ten of their 13 children emigrated to Canada on the ship Groote Beer, a ship commonly used for Dutch immigrants. In August 2003, 12 of their children, and another ~70 of their descendents, met in Oakville to commemorate 50 years of the Moll family in Canada.

Here is an assortment of some of the photos I took that day.
