On this the 100th Anniversary of Canada going to war in 1914, we wanted to share some milestones with you. We’re very excited that late last night we surpassed 100,000 views on our website since we launched in February 2012! About three-quarters of those views were from visitors in Canada however the remaining 25% were from 134 countries.
We started small but since then we’ve made 119 posts, have 249 static pages and have uploaded 1,025 images.
Fittingly some of the most viewed pages on our site our the transcriptions of the war diaries of the 3rd Battalion, Canadian Expeditionary Force which were completed as part of a crowdsourcing project in the Fall of 2012.
We’ve continued to add material relating to the First World War including nominal rolls, letters from soldiers, personal diaries and profiles on a number of QOR that served. We’ve recently put links to all this material on our WWI Resources Page to make it easier for visitors to find – please take a look!
Of course this isn’t the end – we’ll continue to post information and resources particularly related to the First World War over the coming years and months. Thank you for being on this journey with us!
