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.

Tracing Your Ancestors Through Letters and Personal Writings: a Guide for Family Historians
(Pen and Sword, 2016). Could your ancestors write their own names or did they mark official documents with a cross? Why did great-grandfather write so cryptically on a postcard home during the First World War? Why did great-grandmother copy all the letters she wrote into letter-books? How unusual was it that great-uncle sat down and wrote a poem, or a memoir? Researching Family History Through Ancestors' Personal Writings looks at the kinds of (mainly unpublished) writing that could turn up amongst family papers from the Victorian period onwards - a time during which writing became crucial for holding families together and managing their collective affairs. With industrialisation, improved education, and far more geographical mobility, British people of all classes were writing for new purposes, with new implements, in new styles, using new modes of expression and new methods of communication (e.g. telegrams and postcards). Our ancestors had an itch for scribbling from the most basic marks (initials, signatures and graffiti on objects as varied as trees, rafters and window ledges), through more emotionally-charged kinds of writing such as letters and diaries, to more creative works such as poetry and even fiction. This book shows family historians how to get the most out of documents written by their ancestors and, therefore, how better to understand the people behind the words. Paperback. New book, fine. ix + 270pp. Order No. NSBK-A15529
Keywords: 9781473855434, family, geneaology, family trees, geneaological, diaries, social history, family historians, ancestors, literacy, correspondence, journals, autobiographies, signatures, commonplace books

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
