I'm pretty sure the men in this picture are my great grandfather and my great, great grandfather on my father's mother's side. Is that convoluted enough for you? I don't think I'm related to the horse... at least not the front end.

Women in my family have thick hair... Although I have no idea what a "Gibson girl" is.
And although they look Italian for some reason, they are scots-Irish. Go figure.

The Gibson girl was popular in the late 1800s and early 1900s. She was what was considered the epitome of youth and beauty back then. Her hair was piled high in what you see of the woman in the back, 2nd from the left. Good images: http://www.google.com/search?q=gibson+girl+hair&hl=en&biw=1140&bih=550&prmd=ivns&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ei=PNBqTrynLOzK0AGS3ImUBQ&ved=0CCIQsAQ

Sorry about the crappy linkage.

Anyway, this is how I wanted to wear my hair for my weddding, some 100 years after it was fashionable, but... whatever... it was not to be. My hair was never thick enough.
