Canadian Military Resources

Posted by: Jan Meisels Allen

A recent article in About.com genealogy has some interesting resources if you are researching Canadian military ancestors.

The resources include:
1. Legion Magazine's free database of death notices for Royal Canadian Legion members with military backgrounds.

2. Online index from Library and Archives Canada to service records of the 600,000 men and women who enlisted in the Canadian Expeditionary Force (CEF) during the First World War (1914-1918) as soldiers, nurses and chaplains.

3 Canadian Post-War Military and Dependent Graves.

4. Books of Remembrance- includes names of Canadians who fought and lost their lives in wars from WW I through Afghanistan.

And more!
