Symes, R. A.
Unearthing Family Tree Mysteries:
(Pen and Sword, 2016). The intriguing characters in these real family history mysteries include an agricultural labourer who left secrets behind in Somerset when he migrated to Manchester, a working-class woman who bafflingly lost ten of her fourteen children in infancy, a miner who purportedly went to live with the Red Indians and a merchant prince of the Empire who was rumoured to have two wives. This book shows how a variety of sources including birth, marriage and death certificates, censuses, newspaper reports, passports, recipe books, trade directories, diaries and passenger lists were all used to uncover more, and how much can be detected by setting the characters from your family tree in their proper historical backgrounds.

Keywords: 9781473862944, social history, geneaology, family trees, women, men, Empire, birth certificates, geneaology, marriage, death, mortality, fertility, diaries, passenger lists, labour, censuses, emigration, family relationships

Meriam, Adele Stuart.
The Stepfather in the Family:
(Chicago UP, 1940). A Social Service Monograph of the University of Chicago. The approach is both sociological and legalistic. Meriam looks at judicial decisions and "sets out the logic and arguments on which those decisions have been based.She brings out clearly the strange dilemma created because of the position of the courts in accordance with the principle that by marriage the stepfather undertakes no obligations to the children of an earlier marriage, as over and against the logic of the older view that when he married a woman a husband took his wife with all of her liabilities." The problem of the stepfather; the stepfather as a stranger; the in loco parentis relationship; liability to support; right of stepfather to his stepchild's earnings; inheritance; right to punish; etc. Paperback.
