Remembered Today:

More Military Records From find My Past


Recommended Posts

Just received an update from Find My Past regarding their latest acquisitions as follows:


'Military records being scanned

The Chelsea pensioners’ records form one of the National Archives' most popular sets of records in the reading rooms at Kew, and findmypast.com, in association with The National Archives, are currently scanning the WO97 documents (Royal Hospital Chelsea: Soldiers Service Documents 1760-1913) for online release.

The WO96 papers (War Office: Militia Attestation Papers 1806-1915) documents are also being scanned and it is hoped that both sets of records will be available online in their entirety by 2011. A total of around nine million images will be made available, which will be searchable by name.

Visitors to the National Archives at Kew will not be able to access those records that are being scanned. Documents are being scanned in batches and a scanning schedule is available on The National Archives’ site.'

End quote

Anyone wanting to visit Kew specifically to look at these records may want to check out the scanning schedule at TNA first.
