New Research Guide for Fallen Nurses
I recently received a copy of the Ontario Genealogical Society Newsletter. Inside was a review of a new resource that will be of interest to those who are researching fallen nurses of the Great War.It is called Canadians at War: A Research Guide to World War One Service Records by Glenn Wright (Global Heritage Press c/o www.GlobalHeritagePress.com). It is $24.95 softcover. Wright was military archivist at the Library and Archives Canada before his retirement. The book exhaustively explores the resources available to researchers seeking information on WWI soldiers and nurses. Many people know how to access the basic service records of first war nurses and soldiers, but Wright offers additional suggestions for further research. For instance, Circumstances of Death records often provide additional fascinating insights. Later today, I'll also be posting another profile of another fallen nurse of the First World War.
