WWI VETERANS FROM BELLARINE PENINSULA

28 Oct

I have been doing a bit of research into the local records of WWI veterans and have attached 3 PDF files to this post with my findings so far. It can become very addictive in tracking the history of some of our local diggers.


One file is a listing of WWI Veterans that were born in the various towns and villages on the Peninsula, the other is a listing of all WWI veterans that gave their address as towns and villages on the Peninsula at the time of their enlistment.
You will see that quite a lot of those born here must have moved to other areas and enlisted locally where as others born here stayed here.
I must tell you that the information is very sketchy and at times can be misleading and repetitive, especially if you search by known service number, you may find that there were many veterans with the same number thus making it very difficult to follow any family trail.
If you are interested in doing any family research into a connection with WWI veterans I have listed  below some of the web sites I have found so far that have helped me to compile the PDF listings.
