Family Research – English, Scottish and Irish Genealogy


Tracing Your Medical Ancestors

The RCGP archives only holds limited biographical material about it’s own members [see MRCGP below for further information] remember the College was only founded in 1952 so if the person you are researching was prior to that it is unlikely that we will hold anything about him/her at all.

There are a number of useful printed sources to use when looking for genealogical/biographical information about the medical professional.

N.B. These sources are not held in the RCGP library or archives but most of them are available at the BMA Library, Wellcome Library, Guildhall Library and other large reference and medical libraries. A helpful work is Susan Bourne and Andrew H. Chicken’s self published book Records of the Medical Professions – A Practical Guide for the Family Historian available
