Engineering your Family History

Postby InstMechEng » Thu Sep 09, 2010 9:03 am

Are you researching a family member who was an engineer? Are you interested in the history of engineering and invention? Three major engineering institutions are holding an open day on Thursday 23 September for family historians at the library of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, Westminster, from 1pm – 4:30pm.

This event is of interest to those researching the history of civil, mechanical or electrical engineers, engineering inventions and the engineering industry. It offers a chance to see some of the archives of the Institution of Civil Engineers, the Institution of Mechanical Engineers and the Institution of Engineering and Technology. The archivists will also be giving short talks on researching your engineering ancestors, the international history of engineering and engineering in wartime.

The event is free but pre-booking is essential: please email the IMechE Archives at to book a place or for more information.
