Genealogically Interesting Data
« on: Friday 17 December 04 16:37 GMT (UK) »
Just came across www.home.clara.net/tirbach/HelpPagepearls6.html which contains some interesting information and links - on paternity, for example  '"Before 1875 the mother was allowed to name any man as the father, he was not required to acknowledge paternity.  From that date, a man could only be named as the father if he consented and was present at the registration"

Much of the site refers to Wales.
