As we approach Armistice Day and Remembrance Sunday, which this year coincide, there is a special offer from Ancestry.co.uk. Searching World War One records will be free on the site from Friday 9 November until Monday 12 November.
The following records are included in the offer:
British Army WWI Service Records, 1914-1920
British Army WWI Pension Records 1914-1920
British Army WWI Medal Rolls Index Cards, 1914-1920
Silver War Badge Records, 1914-1920
Citations of the Distinguished Conduct Medal, 1914-1920
Since I uploaded that this morning, I have received an announcement that Ancestry,ca are giving free access to their military records.
ScotlandsPeople have added Scottish wills and testaments from 1902 to 1925.
The October issue of The Historian, as usual, contains the membership renewal notice. Current members wishing to pay online and take advantage of the prompt payment discount can do so by using the Registration Renewal form in the Members' Area. Anyone who does not have a password for the Members' Area should request it before the end of November to be sure of receiving it in time.
A reminder also that the Centre closes at 4pm on Wednesday December 19th for the holiday break.
