What Age Could They Do That?

Selling real property, getting married, being a witness, and other "legal" acts usually require the person to have arrived at a certain age. Think about the date when a relative performed any legal act and remember that legally he or she would have had to have been a certain age.

Are you using that as a clue?

  1. Yes but how do you find out what the ages are for those different acts, do they differ state by state, and how did they change over time?
