    Better than me, 23 from 142 (all RA service numbers and in the A-P range) and nothing at all in the A-G range at all which is 71 searches, how did you get on with that group?

    I have to say its a very disappointing upload

    The cards do include transfers in and G.S. Corps, I'm just a little disappointed at how few cards I found.

    How did F.M.P. miss out on the tracer cards when they hold the attestation records and casaulty cards?

    Ah well, I better get checking all the lads who didn't directly join the RA - I might leave that until tomorrow - for now I'll look at the few cards I got and try work out what they mean - its not always clear

    I was midway through the H's before I hit anything - it looks like the first bit of the alphabet has been culled at some point and for some reason

    Some new American records added (worldwide subscription probably needed)

    US WW2 Hospital Admission Cards 1942-54

    US Navy & Marine Awards & Decorations 1942-1994

    US Veteran Administration Masted Index 1917-1940.

    As well as the British Military records free this weekend on Ancestry.co.uk, some Electoral Registers and Probate records are accessible.

    Edit. Forgot to say Find My Past have added some Burma Star Association records according to the blog this morning.

    Today's addition on FMP include British WW1 Medical Records (I could be wrong, but I thought Ancestry had a similar collection?)

    From WW2
    United States, Massachusetts: Index Of Casualties, World War II
    Find out if your Massachusetts ancestors died in service during World War II. Explore this collection of more than 9,000 records compiled by the Adjutant General of the Commonwealth and held by the Massachusetts Archives. Transcripts include rank, death date, death place, additional notes and a link to an image of the original document.

    An accompanying printed booklet with the title: World War II Honor list of dead and missing-- the State of Massachusetts contains corresponding data, although the information in the booklet is arranged by county, and is confined to the name, serial number, rank, and circumstances of the death of each soldier

    Maybe of use to those searching soldiers from the Dundee area. Not subscribed, but from a few basic searches this archive seems to be in a bit of a guddle.

    I tried searching the name Alexander Goodman with spelling variations on both names in the Electoral register that goes up to 1939, FMP returned the name, A There A G694!!

    Over 6 million new Scottish records available to search
