CEF Service Files Digitization: March Update

As of 15 March 2017,  416,749 (404,164 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 7059 (6831 last month) and last name McLelland (McGee). Library and Archives Canada is digitizing the service files systematically, from box 1 to box 10686, which roughly corresponds to alphabetical order.

12,585 (16,454) files were digitized in the last month. At that rate the project would be complete by August 2018.
