New Database of Military Records
- Genealogy Today announced the start of a database project involving
the transcription of military service data from various sources.
Annual subscriptions are available at no charge to visitors.
The Military Roots Project is a collection of genealogical facts
from various books containing rosters, muster rolls and troop
histories. Each record is accurately sourced to document which
resource (and what page) the information was transcribed from.
The database launched today with several thousand names from several
different books and additional sources will be uploaded on a regular
basis. Visitors can quickly search for the surnames they are
researching, and optionally sign up for free surname trackers to be
notified when matching information is added in the future.
A short registration is required for free access to this database.
