Library Europe's largest nursing-specific collection

Family history


From August 2016 the RCN made key nursing registers available via Ancestry is a genealogy website that provides access to a wide range of resources on a subscription basis.

The RCN now offers a searching service. If you would like us to search for a nurse then please complete this Family Search Service form after reading the terms and conditions.


Use the guides below for information on nurses leagues and registers, midwifery, training and employment records and recommended reading. The Library and Archive Service holds the books listed in the guides, but most of the supporting information is available on the internet or in local libraries. If you need further support or advice in using these guides please email Family history.
