Exploring military history records

  • You can continue your wartime ancestor’s story with the largest collection of British and Irish newspapers online, digitised in partnership with the British Library. Among the pages, you may find details of bravery or moving tributes to the fallen: these rich details can help you feel closer to your ancestors.
  • Next, uncover those all-important life events in the most comprehensive collection of British parish records online, and be sure to check Findmypast’s vibrant Photo Collection for a glimpse into life during wartime.
