Veteran's Day 2015 ~ Honor Roll Project Contributions

Derry, New Hampshire Veteran's Honor Rolls in MacGregor Park

Thank you to all the volunteers who contributed to the Honor Roll Project for Veteran’s Day / Remembrance Day 2015.  These volunteers spent many hours of their own time taking photos of war memorials and honor rolls, posting them on their blogs, and transcribing the names.  These transcriptions make the names available for search engines, and the names can be found by family, descendants and friends.

This project started in 2010.  Since then dozens of honor rolls have been included, and thousands of names transcribed from all across the United States, and five other countries!

Please check out the new website
