TheGenealogist has added another 15,000 names to its War Memorials collection, from 53 new memorials. This collection now has more than 383,000 fully searchable records.
This latest release includes war memorials from Worcestershire and South Yorkshire as well as some further monuments from Australia, Canada, London and various other British counties. A more unusual one added in this release is from Olds, in Alberta, Canada – the memorial is a Sherman tank (pictured)!
With the records fully searchable by name, researchers can read transcriptions and see images of the dedications that commemorate soldiers who have fallen in the Boer War, WW1 and various other conflicts. You can read an interesting case study from these records at www.thegenealogist.co.uk/featuredarticles/2017/warmemorials-that-reveal-ww1-heroes-681/.
These new records are available as part of the Diamond Subscription at TheGenealogist.
