A Recipe for Well-being: Health and Illness in Colonial New England
Have you ever wondered what British colonists in New England used for medicine? Learn about some of the popular theories of the causes of illness as well as some common illnesses and treatments, including the roles of food, herbs, bleeding, cupping, blistering, purging, religion, astrology and superstition. Examples of some of the treatments will be presented and their efficacy discussed. This talk will help genealogists place the role of health and medicine in their colonial ancestor’s life into perspective.
Impact of the 1918 flu epidemic: A personal stories-based approach
The 1918 flu pandemic killed up to 100 million people worldwide in less than a year, disproportionately taking healthy young adults. The personal impact was devastating and wide-ranging, including immigration, families split apart, and openings for women in the workforce. This talk draws on stories and newspaper articles to explore the multi-faceted ways the 1918 flu epidemic impacted families, sometimes for generations.
