OLD AGE PENSION ACT OF 1908

Did you have relatives in Britain in 1909, particularly relatives 70 years old or older? If so, this post on the Family History Circle blog will definitely be of interest:

“The year was 1909 and in the UK, the Old-Age Pension Act of 1908 began paying claimants. There were 837,831 people who filed claims in the first three months of the program, which offered public support to those over seventy years old who met specific qualifications.”
