Until 11 November 2018, Ancestry, the global leader in family history and consumer genomics, opened their WW1 Medal Rolls Index Cards collection free of charge. People were able to find out if you have WW1 connections and the records will helped people discover more about their life during The Great War. 

You can still visit to start finding your WW1 ancestors and share your WW1 heritage stories using #Thankyou100. 

If you find your ancestor was one of the over 1.1 million service men and women who gave their lives in the First World War, you can ensure their sacrifice is never forgotten by commemorating them via Everyone Remembered.
