 Was your ancestor wounded in the Great War?

 

Over 36,000 new additions from the National Archives in Kew are now available to search. These highly detailed records include images of original documents and will reveal when and where your ancestor was wounded, the nature of their injuries, where they were treated and how long they were. Service details and other additional notes may also be included.

 

The medical records were collected by the Medical Research Committee and then given over to the British Museum during the First World War, 1914 to 1918. The records were used for statistical research. In 1931, Thomas John Mitchell and G M Smith published History of the Great War, based on official documents. Medical services: Casualties and medical statistics of the Great War from the data gathered from these medical records.

 

 

Did your ancestors serve in the volunteer force of the United States Army between 1861 and 1865? Explore thousands of PDF images of official army registers created by the United States Adjutant General’s Office to uncover details of their service.

The United States Volunteers force was separate from the Regular Army. During the nineteenth century, this was the United State Federal Government’s main means of raising large forces of citizen soldiers needed in time of war to supplement the regular army.

 

Find out if your Massachusetts ancestors died in service during World War II. Explore this collection of more than 9,000 records compiled by the Adjutant General of the Commonwealth and held by the Massachusetts Archives. Transcripts include rank, death date, death place, additional notes and a link to an image of the original document.

 

An accompanying printed booklet with the title: World War II Honor list of dead and missing– the State of Massachusetts contains corresponding data, although the information in the booklet is arranged by county, and is confined to the name, serial number, rank, and circumstances of the death of each soldier.

 

 

Over 6,000 new images have been added this month. These new additions add additional years for the Saint Louis Catholic Historical Review, Daughters of the American Revolution Magazine and the Friends Historical Society Journal
