This study looks at the spatial and temporal dimensions of witness relations in marriage networks by applying a space-time kernel density approach. Marriage networks represent chosen patterns of sociability for a large proportion of the population. We aim to answer research questions: To what extent did witness relations became denser over time and space, i.e. consisting of relatively more kin and/or of geographically more clustered family hubs, during the period 1830-1950?
