WW1 Project

York Family History Society WW1 Project (284 downloads)

As part of the World War One Centenary, we are asking for our members to write up short histories of their ancestors who experienced the great war. As we receive them we will publish them here for people to download and read and we hope to eventually collate all the submissions into some form of publication.

If you are a member of York & Distrct Family History Society and you would like to see your ancestor’s story published here please drop a line to the webmaster. We are looking for any interesting story so it doesn’t matter whether your ancestor served with the forces or not.

A few pages with some pictures is ideal and we’d appreciate it if you could email your submission in the form of a Word document or PDF. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact us.
