A few days ago I recorded information on SpittalStreet.com about access to nursing records from Findmypast. Today I can share the following notice I received from the British National Archives regarding the publication of WWI nursing service records. At the same time I can offer the reminder that the National Archives is a tremendous resource:
“This morning we have published more than 15,000 First World War nursing service records online, providing a glimpse into the life stories of the heroic women who dedicated their lives to their profession. The records date from 1902 to 1922 and hold an unusually high level of detail, rarely seen in service records. Search the records now*.
There are many other First World War record series online to search*, including 5 million campaign medal index cards on our website and army service records atancestry.co.uk. If you’re not sure where to start, ourresearch signposts provide an ideal overview of what’s available (and where).
We also stock a number of titles in our online bookshop that might help, including the Great War Medal Collectors’ Companion.
And finally, thanks to everyone who took part in our recent subscriber survey. We were delighted with the response and are working through your feedback now!”
