    take my place in the family dynasty.

    Jim is saying his dead father wanted both of his children to become a broker, but after Jim's brother died, the pression got bigger on Jim, taking his place...But what is "take my place in the family dynasty."? Is it "His position became important in the family?" I guess so, but dynasty is for a series of a nation's history.

    g.h
    Jim- He wanted my brother and me to go into his brokerage business, one of these huge wall street companies. A lot of people with very nice shoes. Then my brother died and the pressure was really on me to step up and, you know, take my place in the family dynasty.

    I guess dynasty is like a comparison to royal dynasty meaning "family root or tradition or history"

    Yes, but "dynasty" is also used for powerful families in English.
