FamilySearch adds First World War army service records

FamilySearch has added the surviving First World War army service records from the National Archives collections WO363 and WO364 - aka the 'burnt records' - in a browse only format at https://familysearch.org/search/collection/2125045. There are some 43,542,691 images - but they can unfortunately only be accessed from one of the LDS church's family history centres.

There's more on the records at https://familysearch.org/learn/wiki/en/United_Kingdom,_World_War_I_Service_Records_(FamilySearch_Historical_Records) - the same records have been available on Ancestry (www.ancestry.co.uk) for many years, and have also recently been added to FindmyPast (www.findmypast.co.uk).

Now available for UK research is the new second edition of the best selling Tracing Your Family History on the Internet: A Guide for Family Historians, whilst my new book British and Irish Newspapers is also now out. And FindmyPast - please reinstate the original Scottish census citations on your new site.
