Library Workshop: Marriage, Divorce and Bigamy with Christine Hills

A members-only event, led by Christine Hills.

In the past, given the chance, most people would have got married rather than ‘live in sin’.

Understanding the marriage law in England and Wales over the last 400 years when the Church held sway and divorce was impossible for the majority of the population, will enable you to understand why your ancestors behaved as they did.

Through discussion of examples, we will devise search strategies for missing marriages or even discover why your ancestor married the same person twice.

Numbers are restricted to enable all participants to ask questions, share knowledge and engage with other members.

Please reserve a place with workshop.booking@nwkfhs.org.uk including the event, title and date together with your name and membership number.Workshop leaders freely give their time, but a donation towards the Society's contribution to the library running costs is appreciated.  A donation box will be available on the day.

This is a face to face meeting at the library, which the Society has sole use of on Wednesdays.

Kent County Library, 80 Summerhouse Drive, Joydens Wood, Bexley, Kent, DA5 2EE
