A study was performed to determine whether the family structure of standard model particles be present in the monopole solutions. The approach taken to solve this problem is to construct all spherically symmetric monopole solutions with unit winding and fixed charge orientation in the model. It was found that there are three solutions that are gauge equivalent but would correspond to physically distinct degrees of freedom in the dualized version of the model.
