Symes, Ruth A.
It Runs in the Family:
(The History Press, 2013). In the quest to uncover our family history, we turn to written records, the family album and even heirlooms. However, they can often be difficult to interpret and sometimes pose more questions than they answer: Why didn't my ancestors smile for the camera? Why did great-grandfather wear a beard while his sons were clean-shaven? Why is my great-grandmother holding flowers in this photograph? Drawing on evidence from social history, women's history, and the histories of photography, art and fashion, and using examples from the lowly as well as the famous, Ruth Symes explores many aspects of ordinary life in the past - from the state of the nation's teeth, to the legal and economic connotations of wearing a wedding ring and even the business of keeping a dog. This fascinating volume aims to help family historians get to know their elusive ancestors by deciphering the wealth of personal and historical clues contained in photographs, documents and artefacts. Paperback. New book, fine. 160pp. Order No. NSBK-D15428
Keywords: 9780752497020, family history, family, families, Ruth Symes, genealogy, geneaolgical, social history, evidence, sources, research, women, old photographs, photography

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. Ex library, covers yellowed, otherwise good+. x + 158pp. Order No. NSBK-A2346
