New data base of Ancestry
- If you go into Ancestry and click on Recent, the latest appears to be British Army WW1 Pension Records - A and B. You get a lot of information and hopefully they will be adding other letters of the alphabet soon. This is what someone said they found -<<I've just been lucky enough to find 15 wonderfully detailed pages on my
gr-uncle Walter BRIGGS, of Leeds.
<<Date & place of birth / distinguishing marks / height / eye colour etc.
<<As he was unmarried when he entered the Army in 1903, it gives the full
details of his 1909 Marriage, including the names of witnesses.
<<Full details of the reason for the Discharge and monies paid.
<<His son's name and date of birth is also there... he received the grand sum
<<of 2/6 shillings a week for him.Carol Lylyk
