The Ogilby Muster First World War online archive set to launch – FamilySearch November 18, 2021

I saw this recently on FamilySearch – The Ogilby Muster First World War online archive set to launch: Longer article.

A NEW online resource will help “unlock history” by giving access to British First World War archives.

The Ogilby Muster (TOM) is an online platform which provides access to archives held in regimental museums across the UK – preserving the experiences and memories of those who served in the First World War for future generations. The new collection covers the period 1900 to 1929, and contains documents, photographs, letters, diaries and more, all related to the British Army and the men and women who served.

“TOM allows us to piece together the truth left behind by the subjects, to build up that wonderful pattern of a jigsaw and find the missing fragments of information. It is especially important as it will help us all further our knowledge and understanding of not just the military side of the First World War, but the social aspect of an event in history that affected and shaped this country and the world,” said the Hon Katherine Swinfen Eady, Trustee of the Army Museums Ogilby Trust.
