JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen MyHeritage Offering Free Access to Selected World War I Record Collections #general

Jan Meisels Allen

In commemoration of the 100th anniversary of World War I, MyHeritage is
offering free access to selected World War I record collections. (July 28 is
the actual date of the beginning of World War l-the day that Austria
declared war on Serbia.)
The record collections are available now through the end of July. It is not
necessary to register or give any credit card information.

To access the record collections, you do need to click on one of the links
in the blog posting:

Silver War Badge Recipients, 1914 - 1918
British Soldiers Died in the Great War, 1914 - 1919
The National Roll of the Great War, 1914 - 1918
Tennessee WWI Veterans
Ireland's Memorial Records, 1914 - 1918
Royal Navy and Royal Marine Casualties, 1914 - 1919
De Ruvigny's Roll Of Honour 1914-1924
Distinguished Conduct Medal Citations 1914 - 1920
British Officers Taken as Prisoners of War, 1914 - 1918
British Military Officers
Victoria Cross Recipients, 1854 - 2006

The resulting data I received when I did a search on several of the databases
in the collection are extractions-not the actual record. Each database does
give the source of the original records.

MyHeritage has a rich collection of military records. However, if you click
on the general military collection you will be prompted to sign up for a
7-day free trial which requires registration. Only the above-mentioned
selected World War I databases are available with free access through the
rest of this month.

I have no affiliation with MyHeritage and am posting this solely for the
information of the reader.
