Event description
Retired professional archivist Anna Watson explains how Church Court Records can help to find our illegitimate ancestors

About this Event

Anna Watson is a retired professional archivist with over 30 years experience working at Lancashire Archives in Preston, specialising in probate and Church Court Records.

"The latter has led me to looking into how to find our illegitimate ancestors, a stumbling block for many family historians. My talk looks at legislation and sources beyond the filiation and maintenance order, hopefully offering new avenues for genealogists to explore. "
