Webinar Wednesday: Using the Chelsea & Kilmainham pensioner records

April 24 @ 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM

$15 – $20

The Royal Hospital in Chelsea was founded in 1692 to look after wounded and disabled soldiers. While there were some resident pensioners in their red tunics, the majority were out-pensioners although the pensions were administered from the Hospital. The Royal Hospital Kilmainham was established even earlier in 1681 and has records of 20 000 men from 1771-1821 (only ~60% were born in Ireland). Soldiers were eligible for a pension after 12 years of service.  

Join this webinar to find out more about the pensioner records and how you might locate your ancestor.
