Let No (Wo)Man Put Asunder: Researching Ancestors Who Divorce
In the ideal world, marriages last “until death do us part.” But in the real world, divorces did occur. How can you determine if an ancestor’s marriage was dissolved? Explore the types of documents that give evidence, direct or indirect, that a divorce took place: vital records, censuses, resources at commercial and free websites, court documents, newspaper stories, etc. The speaker’s great-aunt Jeanette, who was married at least 3 times, and engaged in just a tad of bigamy, will provide a case study.
