In The Family Way (Matrilineal Edition)

From my mom:

Grandpa is the little blonde boy front and center. The one in the dropped waist dress is Nellie, Grandpa's mother and a VERY stern woman); Helen (grandpa's sister) is the little girl with the necklace, next to her is George, Grandpa's father (a sweet, kind man who would sneak us candy when Nellie wasn't looking).

I was never terribly close with my Grandpa, but he was a good man, and I always enjoyed favored status as the first (of fourteen) grandchildren. The resemblance is kinda illuminating too:

This picture would be from sometime in the mid-1920s. Heritage.
