Five new UK military databases came online at Ancestry on Friday.
|UK, Royal Air Force Muster Roll, 1918||94,814|
|UK, Naval and Military Courts Martial Registers, 1806-1930||838,431|
|UK, Military Deserters, 1812-1927||302,802|
|UK, British Army Lists, 1882-1962||2,421,506|
|UK, British Jewry Roll of Honour, 1914-1918||57,202|
It would have been more accurate to have termed these partial transcriptions or index records. They all indicate, but do not actually provide a functioning link to the complete record at another Ancestry commercial database, Fold3.
The RAF Muster Roll and Jewry Roll of Honour are both available at Findmypast, without any additional charge to see the original records, as are some of the Deserters records. Some of the British Army Lists are also on Findmypast and thegenealogist, and for 1754-1879 in WO 65 as free digital microfilm from TNA. Search at http://discovery.nationalarchives.gov.uk/
Ancestry also supposedly added/updated a database UK, British Army Recipients of the Military Medal, 1914-1920, but I could find no way to search or browse it!
