It is the Spanish-American family that this study will attempt to analyze. What changes has the family undergone in New Mexico? What changes have taken place in such phases of family life as mobility, parent-child relationships, adoption practices, family reciprocity, and home ownership?
In order to study this institution, the relief clients of San José, a small Spanish-American suburb of Albuquerque, New Mexico, were chosen as the field for investigation. Case records of the New Mexico Department of Welfare serve as the basis for analysis. Therefore, by way of summary, the problem might be stated as follows: What changes in the Spanish-American family are revealed by the study of the case records of the San José relief clients?
