Journal of Marriage and the Family, v50 n2 p533-41 May 1988
Investigated 169 family stories told by 56 families. Found no generational differences in number and types of stories. Parents were considered main source of stories; grandparents were main characters. More male than female characters were used, and themes of personality, work, and family were predominant. Concluded that stories go down into family history only temporarily. (Author/NB)
