The Common Room / Complicated Working Class Histories
« on: Thursday 04 July 24 11:25 BST (UK)  »
I've had a difficult challenge researching my family history as several of my ancestors were in and out of workhouses under the Poor Laws and earlier Debtor Laws.

I was shocked to read how many young children and babies died in 19th century workhouses.  No wonder there are so many tales of children escaping and living on the streets - just like the Artful Dodger and Oliver Twist.

It shocks me to compare their desperate lives with so many affluent school children of today.

Some of us are drawn to family history because out-of,-the-blue info has shed doubt on long established identity.  This can happen at any age and can be good or (very) bad - but you have to laugh or go completely mad !
