Index of CEF WW1 Soldiers

This blog is an index of blogs that have been prepared by numerous authors that provide details about soldiers that served with the Canadian Expeditionary Force in the Great War (World War One). Although the blog started in February 2007, the date of this posting is updated to record when the last addition has been made.

In order to have some form of standard for the blogs that are being completed, it was proposed that the titles of the new blogs that were being formed have a standard blog address, such as:

where the soldier's name would be inserted in place of "name" as the "common name" initial followed by the last name.

This blog will be updated to add the names of new blogs as they become available. If you wish to have yours added to the list, please send the details to the CEF Matrix Project. The index will be listed in posts that differentiate the nature of the blog.
