Genealogy website MyHeritage has announced that its collection of 47 million military records will be free to search from 8 to 12 November, to mark the centenary of the end of World War I.

The military records at MyHeritage can provide birth and death dates, names and addresses of family members, and details of an individual's service. Search through a wide range of military records as well as military histories to learn more about your ancestor and the political climate during their service.
