CEF Service Files Digitization: February 2017 Update

As of 15 February 2017,  404,164 (387,710 last month) of 640,000 files are available online via the LAC Soldiers of the First World War: 1914–1918 database.

The latest digitized is from Box 6831 (6526 last month) and last name McGee (Murray). Library and Archives Canada is digitizing the service files systematically, from box 1 to box 10686, which roughly corresponds to alphabetical order.

16,454 (9,481) files were digitized in the last month. At that rate the project would be complete by May 2018.
