Recently Olive Tree Genealogy received an interesting email about a project called Lives of the First World War

 Lives of the First World War is one of the Imperial War Museum’s (IWM) major centenary projects, which looks to uncover the life stories of the men and women who served Britain and the Commonwealth during the First World War. 

The platform will bring together a wide range of record sets, including material from museums, libraries, archives and family collections, together in one place, enabling users to explore documents, link them together and start telling the stories of those who served in uniform and worked on the home front.

More information on Lives of the First World War can be found here. You can also follow the project on Facebook and on Twitter

This should be an ideal site for genealogists, especially the writing and contributing of a family story.
