Tuesday, March 19, 2024 19:00 Ragged, poor, and mischievous or young thieves and Street Arabs. By Linda Hammond.You may well think that this session doesn’t apply to you because you don’t have any ‘criminals’ in your family. However, this is one area of genealogical research which can turn up a wealth of information on an individual and their family and background, and it is also one of the most overlooked. Children throughout history have been mischievous, but their acts oftentimes meant they were classed as criminals. The wealth of records available about these children is phenomenal. This presentation seeks to show you both where to find these records both online and in archives, and the type of information you will discover. The substantial treasures you can uncover reveal a real wealth of social and genealogical information unique in its coverage and depth. NFHS ZOOM TALK - Free for members. Zoom will open to members 5 mins prior to talk commencement time of 19.00hrs. This talk will be recorded and placed on our website for members for two weeks.
