Sharing from Tara Calishain of ResearchBuzz News:
http://www.chattanoogan.com/2015/2/25/294855/New-Online-Application-Maps.aspx "This fully functional (and free) geographic information system application shows 150 wartime sites—refugee camps, early freedmen schools and churches, and recruitment sites for the more than 20,000 black Union soldiers who enlisted from Tennessee. In addition to narrative information, the sites are linked to scans of original primary sources that document historic events. These sources include maps, newspapers, and manuscript items from the collections of the Tennessee State Library and Archives and the Tennessee State Museum."

"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.

I've spent the last couple of days updating more then 3,700 links to the Family History Library catalog on FamilySearch. These links have been on Cyndi's List since the FHL catalog first came online. They recently did away with the older version of the catalog, so all my links were redirecting to the main FHL catalog page. I think I'm in the home-stretch at fixing these. If you all happen to find one that doesn't work right, be sure to let me know.

The catalog contains everything in the Family History Library's collection in Salt Lake City, Utah. Items in the collection can be ordered on loan to be sent to your local Family History Center for you to use in your research.
