Tameside Group - Poor Law Records - Gay J Oliver

Very little survives of Ashton-under-Lyne Poor Law Union, so I spent a week at the National Archives looking into the Poor Law Correspondence papers, putting together whatever I could find to help fill in local gaps.  I will cover the history of the Poor Law locally and then some discoveries of when the New Poor Law of 1834 and how it took fully 17 years to implement locally.

Hilary Hartigan gave this talk to the Oldham Group of Manchester and Lancashire FHS earlier this year which I found to be one of the simplest ways of interpreting your DNA Matches.  Hilary explained everything in clear and uderstandable language. I feel she takes the jargon out of a complex subject. Not to be missed.
