TheGenealogist adds another 64,920 War Memorial records and 13,487 new headstone records.

A press release from TheGenelogist gives information on an eclectic mix of 64,920 War Memorial records just added:
- a complete roll of honour for both WW1 and WW2 for Shetland, with men's units and the Shetland village in which they had resided. - other war memorials including the Abercarn Tinplaters Memorial Institute in Wales.
- plaques and monuments in Bedford, Bolton, Lancashire, London, Merseyside, Greater Manchester, Warwickshire and even further afield.
- a fascinating, but sadly very worn, WW2 memorial from Calgary that names 227 aircrew from Australia and New Zealand who died while training in Canada.
- from the USA WW1 and WW2 war memorials from New York, including a fine one in Battery Park, a roll of those men and women who lost their lives in the Atlantic coastal waters in WW2 and had no known grave as a result of U-boat action. The war memorial gives researchers the ranks, units and the US state from which they had come.
- a number of Boer War memorials - for example the tribute within Blackpool Town Hall that commemorates the 74 Blackpool men who volunteered to join various units for service in South Africa.

These new records and more are available as part of the Diamond Subscription at TheGenealogist.
