"The Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Families Association (SSAFA) has published its records for 1914 in a free online archive.
It shows that in 1914 alone the Northumberland branch helped 7,885 wives, 18,372 children and 2,322 other relatives of serving forces’ personnel, giving £23,839 in aid.

And across the UK and the British Empire SSAFA mobilised some 50,000 volunteers to help more than a million people in 1914.
The archive reveals the hardship faced by families at the time. Every town is listed, with the number of people helped, the types of cases and the organisations and benefactors involved."
An insight into life on the homefront in the First World War is being offered by a forces’ charity.

Greg Boyd of Arphax Publishing and http://www.historygeo.com had a great idea, so I thought I'd pass it on to all of you:

"Hey genealogy buddies: here's an idea that some of you should consider. September 30th will be the last day EVER for Genforum entries. You could literally have the last word on any message threads where bad information has been spread over the years.

After Sep 30th, all message boards will be read-only. Google still gives very high page rankings for Genforum entries by the way.

One word of advice: be sure to use an email address with your account that you plan to keep the rest of your life. If they have an old address on record, you might consider changing your settings to reflect your latest. 

Just a thought."
