For most individuals financial survival depends upon luck, matching income to expenditure, paid work and the mobilisation of resources via a series of links acquired through kinship, neighbourliness, friendship, ethnicity, religion or shared interests. This is a guide to some of the secondary sources that discuss external resources: friendly societies, building societies, life insurance, businesses and the co-operative movement and the relationship of these to families. It draws attention to disparate studies and aims to encourage small-scale research.
