Saturday, December 6
Bucks County Genealogical Society Annual Meeting and Program  (FGS Member Society Events)
10:00 am to 1:00 pm
David Library of the American Revolution, 1201 River Road, Washington Crossing, PA
“Dowered or Bound Out: Records of Widows and Orphans" presented by renowned speaker "The Legal Genealogist Judy Russell".

Widows and orphans have always had a special place in the law. But it's not always the place that 21st century researchers might expect. An orphan in the early days wasn't a child whose parents had died, but rather a child whose father had died. The law didn't care much about the mother. She was just the widow, entitled to her dower rights and generally not much more. Learn more of the way the law treated widows and orphans, and what the records may tell us about them.

Admission $5 Members / $10 Non-Members, Open to the public
