Ol' Myrt here has long been interested in prevailing medical practices during the American Revolution and the US Civil War. Now I see that our friends over at The National Archives (UK) are hosting a presentation on Naval medical officers' journals. Since Ol' Myrt cannot attend in person, I will be able to listen to the podcast as noted below.
Talk on naval medical officers' journals and the history of medicine
Come along to The National Archives to find out how the Royal Naval medical officers' journals of ADM 101 provide a valuable source for examining key themes in the history of medicine in the 19th century. Records specialist Dan Gilfoyle will analyse a sample of the records to explore how they reveal the changing understanding of the causes of disease and the nature of tropical diseases.

The talk will be available as a podcast on our website after the event.
Hope this event will be of interest to my DearREADERS.
Happy family tree climbing!
