Vincent Van Gogh has a very interesting Family Tree.
Here's the ones I know about.
His dizzy aunt - Verti Gogh
The brother who worked at a convenience store - Stop N Gogh
The grandfather from Yugoslavia - U Gogh
His magician uncle - Where-diddy Gogh
His Mexican cousin - A Mee Gogh
The Mexican cousin's American half-brother - Gring Gogh
And his niece who travels the country in an RV - Winnie Bay Gogh
Do you know any more to add to the list?
Time for me to Gogh.
His dancing, married, female, second-cousin who came of age in the 60's (and hyphenated her name): Gho Gogh-Boots
What about his negative great nephew who hinders progress: Noe Gogh
And his married, free-spirited, niece who married an Asian man: Ima Gogh-Ing
Well done Lisa
I'm sure you could think of some AEvans:
Like his bird watcher brother - Flamin Gogh
How about that card-crazy cousin? Bin Gogh
Or that light on her feet niece - Tan Gogh
Or maybe even that rocker neighbour - Indi Gogh!
Then there's his seriously ill cousin: Tutchen Gogh
and his ever-fleeting, impatient, second-cousin: Gutta Gogh
The fruit-growing cousin - Man Gogh
And the French brother in law who builds small plastic houses - Le Gogh
and the paternal, married, low-class, aunt with too many clingy children:
and that waffling great nephew who lives in the US, and whose name is often confused with Leg Gogh's: Egg Gogh (He's married to Mable Surrup.)
We've got to stop meeting like this Lisa
I think I'll escape by driving off in my Gogh Gogh Mobile.
I'm going to gogh, but before I do I just had to mention the drum-playing great-grandson:
Oh, and that overweight great-nephew: Carr Gogh
Well, if you guys ever learn how to pronounce foreign words, you will find that none of these are relatives

Thanks for that very authoritative link, although I think that I may have to flag your post as being self promotional.
Because at around 14 seconds, it mentions
"Pompous, artificial, inflated, pretentious A***holes.
He sure can! That is only the second person I have heard pronounce it. The other was a Dutch Australian painter friend. I still can't get my throat to cooperate well enough to say it!
I lived in Holland for 8 years, so not a problem for me. this is the hardest w9rd in the Dutch language - and was a useful test during WWII to catch German spies - "scheveningen". The "sch" requires the throat sound with an "s" in front and the en is pronounced soft "a".
That video was funny. For a bit I thought I was in the religion forum. LOL it made me forget about my original comment I was intent on though. LOL Oh I remember now;
Vincents 3 cousins, Shadrac, Meshak and Abednegogh.
This is fun I just love family trees
don't forget to add the health nut aunt Gink-Gogh
his aussie pet Din-Gogh
his banking uncle who owns Wells Far-Gogh
his speech therapist cousin Lin-Gogh
his second cousin twice removed on his mothers side, you'll recognize his name as it's everywhere Lo-Gogh
and last but not least even though its very sad, poor old Van Gogh had problems with his Lumba-Gogh
now I really gotta gogh get some work done
Then, too, there was his musically gifted niece: Archipela Gogh
And is self-centered great granson: Eee Gogh
His distant cousin who is also related to ZZTop who named one of their albums in the 70's after him: Fandan Gogh
his brother-in-laws sisters kid who overrides trade barriers named: Embar Gogh
this needed to be mentioned even though its not a family tree member but they are all involved: their favorite place to buy the real deal Cocoa from: Con Gogh
I should 'under-gogh' a head exam for continuing this thread
All very excellent responses.I had no idea that Vincent had such diverse relatives.
I found out about a few more today:
The nephew who drove a stage coach - Wells-far Gogh
An illegitimate son who plays percussion in a band - Bon Gogh
His panelbeating 4th cousin twice removed, Ding Gogh
And last but not least, his golfing sister in law, Fore Gogh

It's been said that working with family is a mistake. Do you agree? If you owned a business would you bring in family or friends?
