The wizarding world of Harry Potter is full of famous families. The Malfoys. The Blacks. The Potters, of course. In many cases, these families have generations of history with Hogwarts. Some are magical. Some are muggle. They have checkered backstories, black sheep, fame, and infamy. While you can learn a lot about them on the big screen, you might not catch some of the small details that make them so special. Thankfully, fans online have spotted many of them for us. In Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, for example, if you look closely at Platform 9 3/4 you'll see Neville Longbottom boarding the train with help from his grandmother. In Deathly Hallows - Part 2, Harry and Neville both wear outfits that greatly resemble their fathers' from decades past. On the Weasley's magical clock in Chamber of Secrets, Fred and George actually share a clock hand!

Check out this list of small details fans noticed about the families of Harry Potter, and don't forget to vote up your favorites!
