Identifying our Soldiers of WWI

Appropriately for Remembrance Day Maurice Gleeson has just posted on YouTube this presentation he gave at Genetic Genealogy Ireland, and preciously for BIFHSGO,

Over 330,000 WWI soldiers are still missing-in-action on the Western Front. Every year 30-60 soldiers (many of them Irish) are found during routine farm work. This presentation discusses the identification process using examples from recent finds (such as Fromelles) and how you can help the process to identify your own war dead relatives.
