FindmyPast adds First World War army service records

FindmyPast (www.findmypast.co.uk) 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 (www.ancestry.co.uk) and on FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org) - 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.
