Title: Hidden Treasures: Canadian Military Records Seen and Unseen

Speaker: Glenn Wright

Details: Researching a military ancestor in the 20th century takes us in many directions. From the service documents of First World War soldiers and nurses to war diaries of Canadian regiments that stormed the beaches of France on D-Day, we have a wide range of sources to document our men and women in uniform. Yet, there are records in archives, primarily Library and Archives Canada, that have been underused or not used at all. Better still – and this is the focus of the presentation — more than one hundred years after the end of the First World War, more personnel records are now available and there is more to come.
