“It has been a year since we launched the UKGDL web site, and it has been a great success. So now is the time to do the same again and launch another – UKMFH (UK Military Family History). Working in the same manner as UKBMD and UKGDL, the new UKMFH is a free-to-use site providing links to web sites that offer information online that will help you trace your family history for those in the Armed Forces.
“RAF/RFC, Navy, Army, Marines – the aim is to cover all aspects of military history throughout the ages for a wide range of categories. The range of topics is vast, so UKMFH has a new keywords search feature – over 6,000 keywords to choose from! For example, “Battle of Britain”, “Cheshire Regiment” and “HMS Hood”, and many, many more.
“As with UKBMD and UKGDL, UKMFH will be updated regularly as our research continues. There are over 1,000 links on the site today, and we have many more ready to add. If you know of any sites that are missing from our links, please let us know and we will add them. As the topic of Military Family History differs a lot from the topics covered by UKBMD and UKGDL there is a new mailing list for UKMFH. We aim to post regular update notices highlighting the most recent additions. Register via the menu button on the UKMFH site.”
