FindmyPast adds First World War army service records

FindmyPast ( has added the surviving First World War British Army service records from the National Archives' catalogued War Office collections WO363 and WO364. About a third of the records still exists, the other two thirds being destroyed in the Second World War.

Both collections have previously been made available on Ancestry ( and on FamilySearch ( - though whilst Ancestry is searchable, the latter is a browse only database.


Now available for UK research is the new second edition of the best selling Tracing Your Family History on the Internet: A Guide for Family Historians, whilst my new book British and Irish Newspapers is also now out. And FindmyPast - please reinstate the original Scottish census citations on your new site.
