Bastards, Bridges & Bawdy Houses

With speaker Gerald Smith, CG(SM)


Learn about where to find Quarter Sessions records, dealings of the court, and the genealogical information within. These courts had broad jurisdiction over oaths of office, licenses, illegitimate children, re-enslavement, crimes, punishments, roads, and administrative matters. The presentation discusses terminology, using the records in your research, and case studies drawn from Pennsylvania research.
