Find out how to research your Great War family history, with a focus on nursing and VAD stories. The day will feature a mixture of talks and practical sessions, from exploring nursing records online to creative writing and family history. Speakers include family history expert Kirsty Gray, nurse and poet Molly Case, and Dick and Lisa Robinson, who will talk about Dick's great aunt, First World War nurse Edith Appleton. Sarah Paterson, Librarian at the Imperial War Museum, will explain how to spot the different kinds of First World War nurses, and what’s available in the IWM collections.
