Finding Canadian WWI Soldiers
9/27/2009
Canadian genealogists get a head start on researching WWI soldiers.


In this article:

If your WWI ancestor was among the more than 600,000 Canadians who served in the Canadian Expeditionary Force (CEF) from 1914 to 1918, the Library and Archives Canada has given you your military records research a jump start.

The archives offers an online index of CEF personnel files, which includes more than 800,000 digitized images of Attestation papers (enlistment documents).

The search results link to instructions for ordering copies of the original documents from the archives. Visit the archives' Web site for more on Canada's WWI records.
