    Hello twogog.

    Yes you can use either form.

    The second is a valid contraction of the first, with the 'of' implied. The second is more common unless you intend to put extra emphasis on the point.

    You can use either, but when writing I would use the first form. All of my family, all of my houses.

    However, in spoken or informal text, it's perfectly acceptable to omit the "of" which is implied by the construction itself.
