Event - A Glossary & Guide to Ancestral Ailments (Worksop)

Tonights talk (07/02) is by Joan Grundy.  Based on her book Joan’s ABC glossary of the ailments of yesteryear is a layman’s guide to the terminology used on death certificates, burial books, parish registers etc. She describes the cause of sicknesses, their symptoms and possible outcome. However, are we becoming complacent about diseases that could still, so easily, re-appear? The last case of Black Death was in Glasgow in the 1900s!

7.30pm at the BCVS Old Abbey School building next to the Priory Church, Priorswell Road, Worksop, S80 2BU. Entrance is still only £3 (or £2 for members) Free tea/coffee and biscuits are provided at each meeting. Membership remains the same at only £5 per year.
