Update on WW1 Military Files Digitized by Library & Archives Canada

Library and Archives Canada (LAC) announced earlier that progress has been made in their project to digitize the complete files of all Canadian Expeditionary Force (CEF) members from WW1

Part of digitized CEF file for M. G. McGinnis
As of today, 101,452 of 640,000 files are available online via the Soldiers of the First World War: 1914–1918 database.

I searched for my Vollick and Peer relatives but so far their files have not been digitized. 

However I found the digitized file for Nursing Sister Mary Geraldine McGinnis who was born in London Ontario in 1893.

There are 33 pages in her file and it makes for interesting reading.

LAC is adding files every week to this huge project.
