For social historians and family historians
A one-hour talk on the Poor Laws. The original Tudor Poor Law limped on, administered by the Church in its civil capacity, until it was replaced in 1834.
For historians the records produced under these Laws give an amazing amount of information about those who did, or who might, become a burden on the parish.
There are no special entry requirements and you do not need to be a Member of the Society of Genealogists. Expect a friendly atmosphere, an expert speaker and lots of detail.
Cost: Free of Charge
