100in100 has arrived
We’re thrilled to announce the launch of our 100in100 campaign
Over the next 100 days we will release new records every week with millions of new names and showcasing some of our recently added collections. You will find record sets from all around the world, including parish records, military records and many others besides.
You’ll have more records to explore than ever before starting with our Pals Battalions.
We’ve collected records from across the UK, including Birmingham, Edinburgh, Liverpool, Salford and the South Downs. Compiled from contemporary publications, they include details not found in medal rolls or service records
These young men, mostly educated, white collar workers, signed up in 1914 in the first excitement of Kitchener’s ‘Your Country Needs You’ campaign. For many, the first action they saw was at the Somme. The Pals signed up together, fought together and in many cases, died together.
Find out whether your relatives were among them in our Pals Battalion collection, the most extensive online collection available.
