Online Event – Criminal Records
2nd December @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Researching Criminal Records with Penny Smith
We are frequently shocked when finding out how severely our criminal ancestors were punished for what now seem the slightest of offences. In 1868 in Wolverhampton, a sentence of 3 months hard labour was given to a 16 year old lad for the theft of a cap. Penny will guide us through the various ways to find the criminals in our ancestry, we all have black sheep somewhere.
Penny is Chair of our Wolverhampton Group and Vice-Chair Genealogy of Midland Ancestors.
