England Church Records and Records of the Poor  (Salt Lake Valley Chapter)
6:30 pm to 8:00 pm
Family History Library

Presented by Margo McKinstry, AG.

The Church of England & Wales, as the governing body for centuries, not only recorded parishioners’ life events but managed their affairs. They maintained the roads, paid the bell ringer and supplied spiritual guidance. One of their most enduring works was to serve the poor. Apprenticeship records, settlement/removal papers and bastardy bonds aid in identifying family lines accurately.

Margo’s passion to share her family history knowledge comes from her own British ancestry research successes. Now retired from FamilySearch employment with England accreditation, she has taught numerous classes at the Salt Lake Family History Library and genealogy conferences. Married to Jim, Margo is originally eastern Canadian, the mother to seven children and twenty-three grandchildren. Jim and Margo served a full-time mission at the Los Angeles FamilySearch Library and are presently residing both in St. George and Layton, Utah.
