Who Do You Think You Are?
NATIONAL ARMY MUSEUM
From the NAM’s collections landing page you can explore digitised highlights or search the online inventory. The latter contains details of more than 100,000 objects and is growing all the time as the existing catalogue is improved and new acquisitions added. The ‘Advanced Search’ page allows you to drill down into type of object, or to search by regiment or conflict. The museum also holds records of soldiers’ effects dating back to 1901, detailing money owed to soldiers who died in service; some of these records are available via Ancestry in the collection ‘UK, Army Registers of Soldiers’ Effects, 1901–1929’ ( ancestry.co.uk/search/collections/60506).
