Participate in the Indexing of the Canadian World War I Personal Records

Posted by Jean-Yves on Nov 6, 2019

During the last indexing week, you were almost 2,000 participants and you have indexed more than 200,000 records.

To mark the Armistice of 11 November 1918, we propose to participate in the indexing of Canadian World War I personal records, from November 8, 2019 until November 17, 2019.

Over 600,000 men and women enlisted in the Canadian Expeditionary Force (CEF) during the First World War (1914-1918) as soldiers, nurses and chaplains.

To participate, go to the menu “Projects” and “Collaborative indexing”, select the collection “Canadian World War I personal records” and the time you can spend on it, then click the button “Start indexing”.

I’m curious to know the purpose of this project since many Canadian World War I Personal Records can be found on the Library and Archives Canada and/or the Canadian War Museum websites.
Access is free to all documents so no Premium fees are charged.

Thank you.

I tried to participate, but I do not understand the vRious documents to complete. The instructions are lacking.

Answer from Geneanet: Could you please give some examples of what you don’t understand?
