Veteran's Day Transcription Project

War Memorials on Londonderry Common
Here is a list of genealogy bloggers who have transcribed the honor rolls on Veteran's Memorials.  These transcriptions make the names available for search engines.  This allows descendants, researchers and family members to find their heroes on the internet.  It is a simple, but very rewarding project.  Thank you for participating!

If you would like to add your blog post to this compendium, please contact me at

  1. Thanks for the motivation. I went to a site in Portsmouth today for WWI and am going to work on getting the transcriptions posted.

  2. This is wonderful! We are going out into the national cemetery close to us this weekend and I will send you the link to the transcript.
