Library and Archives Canada ( has announced an update on its project to digitise its service files for the Canadian Expeditionary Force soldiers who served in the First World War. many of the soldiers were recent immigrants from Britain and Ireland, my grandmother's cousin Robert Currie amongst them.

The archive has now digitised some 217,062 of 640,000 files, with more work ongoing. The archive is essentially doing them in alphabetical order.
