Discover Military Ancestors Today
With over 70 million global military records, there's no better place to uncover the remarkable life stories of your bravest relatives
What Can You Expect to Find?
Military records are vital genealogical resources, particularly for those times when an ancestor seems absent in census data and during the ages of mechanised warfare where conscription led to most men in the country being sent to fight.
The level of information preserved in military records can help you understand more about your ancestors and even read full physical descriptions (especially useful if you have no surviving pictures of them), details of where they were sent, and even their disciplinary and medical records.
Sadly, only around 40% of First World War service records have survived. However, we've indexed and combined what's left with supplementary papers that reveal the details of more soldiers than ever before, giving you a better chance of finding details to add to your tree than anywhere else online.
We don't just have a massive collection of service records though, you can also search for ancestors in medal rolls, embarkation lists, honour rolls, casualty lists and much more. Not only that, our records cover Australian, British, Irish and American military.
