What can we learn from York poverty records over the last two centuries?
We're very pleased to welcome Julie-Ann Vickers for our first talk in 2018, on Friday 26 January at 7.30pm at Clements Hall.
Julie-Ann is working on the Explore York Past Caring Project, funded by Wellcome. This project is engaged in cataloguing health and Poor Law records stored by the York City Archives. These are from the York Poor Law Union and Workhouse, York Medical Officer of Health, Department of Health, and Department of Housing and Environmental Health.
