The end of the great war

This month, Ken Nisbet shares his top tips for using medical registers and directories to research ancestors who used the services of a hospital or doctor

2018 has seen the 100th anniversary of the great flu / influenza pandemic, which killed millions at the end of the great war and also continued into 1919 and 1920. Local newspapers reported on the impact of the pandemic, with schools and cinemas being closed and local medical services being in some cases overwhelmed. For details of doctors in practice during that period, information can be gleaned from the medical registers (1859-1959) and medical directories (1845-1952), these can be found on Ancestry. com. They can also be useful if a doctor is mentioned on your relative’s death certificate.
