Vaccination Records for Family History

June 9, 2021 @ 7:00 pm – 8:45 pm
The History Society is holding its monthly meetings online on Zoom for the foreseeable future. In this meeting guest speaker Sylvia Valentine will cover the records which were created as a result of the compulsory smallpox vaccination legislation from 1840 and will discuss the anti-vaccinators who were able to “take over” the board of guardians in Keighley.
This meeting is exclusively for members who have paid to join the History Society. Members should receive an email invite a week or so in advance – remember to look out for it.
The ‘doors’ will open at 7pm but the talk won’t start until around 7.30pm. This is to give people the chance to log in to the meeting and for updates on Society news.
Sylvia Valentine’s talk on Vaccination Records for Family History is on the 9th June. The main picture is a photograph from Dean Smith & Grace, held in the History Society’s archive.
