The history and rules leading governing a church or civil marriage and the problems caused by marital breakdown are always a challenge to genealogists. Finding a marriage is one of the commonest problems for family historians and this tutorial will help identify the sources that contain information and the techniques that can help track down the information we need.

We will look at the role ecclesiastic and civil courts played in marital breakdown and divorce and what records can help or hinder the genealogist. There will be time for discussions, so do bring your questions along.

Date and Time: 12 December 10:30-12:20 (UK) this tutorial includes a short break.

Tutor: Else Churchill
