Grass Widows, Bigamists & Dearly Departed: Alternatives to Divorce in the 19th Century  (Monthly Meetings)
6:30 pm to 9:00 pm
Downtown Farmington Library - 23500 Liberty St, Farmington MI 48335
Barbara Snow presents:
What happens when the marriage doesn't work out and both husband and wife are perfectly healthy and unlikely to die soon?   Divorce?  Not always.  Our ancestors had a number of creative ways to end a marriage without enduring the difficulties and expense of a divorce.  Understanding what might have happened can help us look at some of our genealogical puzzles in a new light.
