First World War global view map launched on TNA

The National Archives at Kew has launched a First World War 'global view' map, showing the global impact of the conflict and linking to various contemporary documents. From the site:

You can see countries, territories and empires as they were during wartime alongside a map of the present day for comparison. This first release focuses on the involvement of countries and territories from across the British Empire during wartime. For each of these, you can read about key events, historical figures and lesser known stories from the war. There are also images and links to our records held here at The National Archives.

The full story is at http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/news/951.htm


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 please consider purchasing the great new version of Caledonia by The Libations at 79p via www.caledonia2014.com - all profits go to help fund Scottish foodbanks
