Memoire Des Hommes

Mémoire des hommes intends to provide the public with digitised documents and data from the archives and collections held by the Ministry of Defence of France.  France lost over 1.4 million men in WW1 and you can find a certificate for each man on the website.  Searches are done by name and the scans of the documents show where a man was from and when and where he died.  The Minister for Defence proposes that users of the site annotate the pages of certain useful digitised documents for genealogy and searching in local history.
