The man with his arm on the grammophone is Antoon, son of Jacques and Rika. Brother from Jacques, Jan, Karel, Kees, Annie
He was married later with Jo Bugter and they had 4 children. 3 girls and a boy
My father Kees is the guy who is sitting behind Annie (Right row at the back)

Or... Is your father Kees (the one with his arm on the gramophone)?

So Freddy... You are first cousins with Bernard Bosmans! Since Kees is your father (who is Antoon's brother.... )

I'm the daughter of Kees Bosmans who sits right behind. I think the man next to tante Jo is another brother Antoon.
It was a great pleasure to find this site. I sent it to my brother Bart and also to my 2 children.
