2.1: Family Correspondence , 1899-1956

The bulk of the Lazzell's family correspondence is with her sisters on the subject of daily life, experiences, and travels. There is also additional scattered correspondence with her brother Rufus and other relatives, such as her niece Frances Reed.
The correspondence with Lazzell's sisters are grouped together at the beginning of the series and arranged chronologically. The letters with her sisters were not alphabetized since they were frequently addressed "Dear Sister" and did not specify the recipient's name, though Lazzell often wrote to her younger sister Bessie. The rest of the subseries is arranged alphabetically, starting with an aunt and uncle who are only given nicknames.
