The purpose of this study is to trace some of the changes in the Spanish-American family in Bernalillo County from 1915 through 1946. It is justified by the fact that culture changes of any kind taking place in a group are reflected in the family as the basic primary unit. This study specifically includes changes in the following: marriage age of Spanish Americans, type of marriage ceremony, inter-marriage with Anglos, family size, and divorce rate.
