How does "gezinnete" (I assume) mean family? Doesn't "family" translate to "famillie" (poor spelling on my part)? Do both words mean family? Or is there no word: "gezinnete", "famillie" only means family, and "gezinnetje" solely means small family?
Gezin can only refer to the family members in the same household: mom, dad and their children. Familie can, and more commonly will, also include every other family member like brothers, granddads, nephews, sister-in-laws.
