News from TheGenealogist

The first in the new BBC series of WDYTYA? airs on 23 July. The subject is Daniel Ratcliffe. I'm hoping to view it later. In the meantime, there's a spoiler post from TheGenealogist.

TheGenealogist has just released over 658 War Memorials with 75,973 new individuals. This means that there are now a total of over 568,000 individuals that are fully searchable in TheGenealogist’s War Memorial records.The new data will allow the family history researcher to discover:
  • close to 76,000 individuals recorded on War Memorials
  • 658 War Memorials from England, Australia, New Zealand and Canada
These fully searchable records are transcribed from images of the tributes put up to honour the war dead from various conflicts including the Boer War, the First World War and World War II. This latest release from TheGenealogist covers war memorials from many parts of the UK, as well as some further afield monuments in Australia, Canada and New Zealand.
