No Wriggling gets a guest slot: Hellish Nell: Helen Duncan – spiritualist, martyr or fraud?

A quick post just to let you know that No Wriggling has been given a guest slot over at Kith and Kin Research today. My subject is wartime spiritualist Helen Duncan and her trial under the Witchcraft Act in 1944. It is a fascinating story of exploitation, superstition and suspicion. Was any aspect of her ‘gift’ genuine? Was the government really concerned about the possibility of a war time security risk? Go over to Kith and Kin Research – The blog and see what you think…..

My thanks to Luke Mouland at Kith and Kin for allowing me to hijack his fabulous blog. Luke posts regularly on genealogy and social history and he is well worth a regular visit.
