Ted and Louie's Wedding (Genealogy Workshop)
Building the Context for a Family Event
What happens when you start with a name, date, and a place for a family event, and you are wondering "what next"?
Join Brenda L. Smith as she discusses a marriage that took place on "17 September 1901, St. Mary's Parish Church, Eaton Constantine, Shropshire." Brenda will demonstrate how a little exploration of economic, social, and political circumstances can enrich your appreciation of "tombstone data."
In this case, how a small village celebrated such a wedding and why the wedding was held at that time of year. Also the gifts that were given and the clothing worn. Brenda's session will help you discover the right research approach and help you overcome the "what next" problem of a family event that you want to explore further.
