Boer War Records online

Boer War Records onlineFindMyPast has updated their Boer War records collection with 10,000 new records. The major inclusions in this update are:

The complete Queen’s South Africa medal roll for the Coldstream Guards, Irish Guards, 1st battalion Royal Irish Fusiliers and Rundles Scouts

The Wepener clasp rolls for Royal Scots, Royal Engineers, Cape Mounted Rifles, Driscoll’s Scouts and the Kaffrarian Rifles

I’m told that this collections comes from 470 sources so it is wonderful that they are all in one place and available at the flick of a button.

I don’t know who Meurig Jones is, but she is the genealogy angel that has provided FindMyPast with these new additions. So 3 cheers for Meurig !!
