Franklin Library: Impact of the 1918 Flu Epidemic - Apr 9

What was the impact of the 1918 flu epidemic? The talk is scheduled for Tuesday, April 9 at 6:30 PM at the Franklin Library.

"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. This talk will be presented by Genealogist Lori Lyn Price."
