  GrahamClayton: Are there many other mother-daughter combinations in chess history?
Premium Chessgames Member
  HeMateMe: Mother and daughter chess:

Naira Agababean and Almira Skripchenko

Olga Rubtsova and Elena Fatalibekova

I guess if <Anna Bellon>, the young daughter of Pia Cramling and another GM becomes a titled player, the list will go to three.

I'd heard of Rubtsova, and, of course, Skripchenko, but not the other two.
