I’m Warning You! The Poor and Impoverished in New England Colonial Times (Webinars)
Presented by Peggy Clemens Lauritzen on 17 Jun 2021 at 7:00pm MT.
In the colonial period there was no social system to help those who fell on hard times. Much of New England relied upon the warning out system to shift the burden of care back to the hometown, often resulting in splitting up family members.
Peggy Clemens Lauritzen, AG, FOGS, was involved in genealogy before she was even born. The daughter of avid genealogists, she was spending time in courthouses and cemeteries while other children were playing on swings and going to the beach. The love of her family's history has never left her. With her experience as a former Family History Director, she is a frequent speaker at genealogical societies, workshops, seminars, and webinars where she loves bringing genealogy to life. Some of those would include The Ohio Genealogical Society, The Ohio State University, Brigham Young University, and many other state and local genealogy societies. She has recently completed several Legacy Quick Guides on Appalachia, which are also available on www.legacyfamilytree.com and www.amazon.com.
