Nebraska families

Here are some links to some absolutely beautiful photos of larger families. I can't post the pictures as they are copyright, but they are worth clicking on the links! Most of them include a lot of family history too, which is wonderful! I wish I could make tiny thumbnails to give a taste of them but I don't know how.

Carl Hickstein family

This is from the CD mentioned several posts ago.

Going from facial similarities, I believe many to most of these are siblings.

More unnamed families

More photos from my CD

The children above look kind of like a posed 1-room school group, but so many of them look VERY alike! The boys in overalls must be twins and a brother, and most of the others look so alike as to be siblings to them also.
