Who Were the Victims of the 1918 Pandemic? – FamilySearch January 19, 2021

I saw this on FamilySearch recently – Who Were the Victims of the 1918 Pandemic?: https://www.familysearch.org/blog/en/byu-linking-lab-pandemic/. Longer article, but here’s a short synopsis.

Have you ever wondered how the 1918 pandemic affected families? Who exactly were the victims, and how did their families cope? With a little help from the BYU Record Linking Lab, you can now find out! Discover who the victims were, where they came from, and who their families were, using the lab’s interactive map called “Families of the 1918 Pandemic.” 

This map allows you to explore different areas of the United States to learn more about victims and their families. You may even be able to find information about your relatives who were impacted.

NOTE: While not all states are currently accessible, records are still being added. The map is live, so check back to look into more states as their records become available.
