Just had to share this news.

Will be nice not to have to pay for these records and to not have to wait so long to get them.

Look forward to when it is all done. Doing the happy dance  :) :) :) :)

This is an amazing website.  I have found records for two brothers from Robin Hood's Bay, North Yorkshire who emigrated to Canada and joined the Canadian Expeditionary Force.  The records reveal their participation in WWI, including dental & medical records, also copies of their Wills, so poignant.  The Tindall family lost 4 of their 8 sons in WWI, one in 1917 and three in November 1918, from wounds, influenza or bronchopneumonia.

Thank you, Lilybell, for posting this.
