|Part of Digitized Service File for Nursing Sister Mary Geraldine McGinnis|
Once digitized, the service files will be stored in a permanent, safe environment. We estimate that 32,000,000 pages will be available online once digitization is finished.
LAC has started posting the digitized files online. They are accessible via Soldiers of the First World War: 1914–1918 database. As of today, 76,330 files are available online. Regular uploads of about 5,000 files will take place every two weeks. All digitized files are searchable by name, regimental number and rank.
