Symbal Reunion



On June 28, 2003, some of the grandchildren of Alex and Katherine Symbal got together for a family reunion.  The brainchild or Sonia Peters and Pat Cohen, news of the reunion spread quickly via email.  The result: a large turnout descended upon the Holiday Shores RV Park in Wisconsin Dells, Wisconsin.  It goes without saying that we did NOT run out of food.....not even close!

If you want to know more about how all these people are related, visit my genealogy page for a link to my family tree. Basically, the attendees were the descendents of three of the daughters of Alex and Katherine Symbal, Vicki (Victoria) Szymoniak, Bernice Szczech, and Olga Urbas.  In attendance were large contingents of first, second, and third cousins, and a whole lotta "in-betweens" as well!

Like I said, we had no fear of running out of food....enough to feed a third world country for maybe a week, actually... and all soooo very good!
