All over the world people are exploring their family histories and we present some of the stories here. Have you researched someone who took part in the First World War away from the Western Front? If you would like their story to reach a wider audience, please contact us.


There are a wide number of online sources of information available for the family historian. You may find it useful to visit Researching the Lives and Service Records of World War One Soldiers where there are a number of useful guides to help you research soldiers who served in the British Army during the First World War. Additionally this website contains a series of guides and articles for those interested in researching Indian soldiers who served in First World War, which can prove even more difficult.
