Nursing Family History Launch at the Royal College of Nursing

  • London

  • 12 August 2016

  • 17:30 - 18:30
  • Free

Join us for a reception to find out more about the Royal College of Nursing's new Family History service and the digitised nursing registers now available online. This year, our records of over 1.5 million nurses have been published digitally for the first time by specialist family history website Ancestry. The records span nurses’ registrations and appointments from 1891-1968, and provide a unique insight into nursing and women’s history in the UK. The evening will include a short talk by Chris Hilton, Senior Archivist at the Wellcome Library. Refreshments will be provided, and there will be a chance to explore the digital records free of charge through the RCN's network. The reception will be followed by a free public lecture on disability history, which can be booked via Eventbrite Event held at: 20 Cavendish Square, London. W1G 0RN
