Many people believe that the poor were not well documented  but this is a misconception. Using records created by both the parish poor law system and the post 1834 workhouse system we can often find a wealth of information about our poorer ancestors. We will look a wide range of records that you are likely to find which will shed greater light on your ancestors' lives.
