Saturday 7th August


Janet Few will present a Zoom presentation on  The Ill, the Impoverished, the Illegitimate and the Insane: researching our marginalised ancestors


Our more wealthy ancestors leave behind them wills, records of property ownership and evidence of careers in the professions. This presentation focuses on those who were less fortunate. In a society that made little provision for those who fell on hard times, often through no fault of their own, many of our ancestors became marginalised. Nonetheless they may have left their own legacy that can be uncovered in the archives. The many and fascinating records of workhouses, hospitals, asylums and the overseers of the poor will be explained.
