Was your ancestor a criminal? (Wed. 14 Nov, 2018 8:30 pm - 10:30 pm)

Dr Colin Chapman will describe the offences that were regarded as crimes in the 18th and 19th centuries in Britain, and the severe punishments that followed conviction. He will then ask: “Was your ancestor a criminal?” Dr Chapman has published and lectured extensively, founded five county family history societies, and is currently president of three, patron of a fourth, a vice-president of the Society of Genealogists and a life vice-president of the Federation of Family History Societies. He compiled the Chapman County Code for British Isles counties that formed the basis of a British and later an international standard.
