Canadian Great War Project

Malcolm Moody's most recent Archive CD Books Canada newsletter mentions a biographical database of all the Canadians who took part in The Great War being developed. The current database contents are available at www.canadianGreatWarProject.com.

With presently 83,028 soldier entries there's quite a way to go yet to the goal of 619,636 who served in the CEF. They'd appreciate help, including adding information from non-official sources.

The site is also worth visiting for the extensive background material accessible from the menu on the left side of the home page.

If searching for CEF fatalities don't forget the Maple Leaf Legacy Project as well as the Commonwealth War Graves Commission database.
