World War One Army Records Workshop

Did your ancestor serve in World War I?, then this workshop will help. The majority of records for the men and women who served in the Great War 1914-1918 are now online (though not everything) but what are they and where can you find them? Have you got stuck with your research into a serviceman and need advice? We will discuss what sort of records are available from medal rolls to operational records and where they are to be found, as well as how to interpret them. 

Attendees are invited to submit questions and images in advance of items they would like to ask questions about.  

Pre-booking is required because places are limited. Bookings close one day before the event.

Please note this is an Online workshop using Zoom software (link supplied). A face to face version takes place in The Centre for Heritage and Family History, Reading on 2nd April – see separate event posting.
