Army Lists: 1754 to 1879

Audrey Collins has posted on her blog The Family Recorder information that a run of volumes from 1754 to 1879 of the (UK) Army list has now been made available for free download on the Digital Microfilm section of DocumentsOnline, in record series WO 65. 

If your ancestor was an officer in the British Army during this period he should be listed, and this would include those who served in Canada and subsequently became residents.

As is usually the case with digital microfilm a download can take a long time even with a fast connection, so choose which issue(s) you download judiciously.
