Can anyone explain the difference between "gezin" and "familie", if there is one?

Yep, there is a difference:

  • Gezin: your close family, usually living in one home. E.g. a mother, father and their children. Or you and your spouse and your children.
  • Familie: the rest of the family: grandparents, uncles and aunts and cousins, and, later on, your siblings, their spouses and nephews and nieces.

I said "Is your family living in the center?" That should be correct too, right? I sent a report.

You can say "centrum" in English, it should be accepted. If you're in a European city, you will say "centrum" in English and an English speaker will understand exactly what you're saying.
