Webinar - 08:00pm - 09:00pm  In the workhouse

Location: Your place!

Presenter: Helen V. Smith   Bookings essential: $12, Members only

The dreaded workhouse came into being in England due to the introduction of the New Poor Law legislation and the establishment of the Poor Law Unions in 1834.  Life in the workhouse was deliberately made to be as unpleasant as possible so that people didn’t think it was an easy option but instead a place of last resort and for many it became a final resting place. This has created a number of records of assistance to family historians.
