WWI Database - FREE

"What’s Included in the Database
This database combines references to various First World War personnel records. Over the next few years, digitized versions of all of the files will be added to the database references. At present, the database includes digitized files for many individuals of the Canadian Expeditionary Force and the Royal Newfoundland Regiment and Newfoundland Forestry Corps (courtesy of the Rooms Provincial Archives). Newly digitized CEF files are added to the references every two weeks."

I encourage you to read through the introduction before you begin your search. BUT I know you won't do that. So I encourage you to read through the introduction after you've not been successful in your searches. haha It's what beginners do - so excited to jump right in and search, but without understanding how the database works you will never be totally successful.

Complete personnel files have been digitized and linked, alphabetically, and will be completed sometime in 2018.

It seemed fitting to post this today. Thanks for your service, past and present.
