Introduction

There are 952 people listed as being associated with New Brunswick in the Great War. All of them need to be remembered.

This page is to keep a record of which World War I soldiers have been added to WikiTree that came from New Brunswick, Canada. The project will eventually record all soldiers listed in the World War I Personnel Records for New Brunswick that are available at Library and Archives Canada. I am currently skipping over all but the Killed in Action cases. After creating the initial profiles, the profiles are entered on this page and marked as in progress. In the case of Killed in Action or Died of Wounds, the profile is also entered into the Roll of Honor once the profile is complete. I will go back and improve profiles once the Killed in Action and Died of Wounds pass is done then add the rest.

Keeping a special watch for Canadian Cycling Corps. (Contact Laura Bozzay)

Also paying attention to categorization. Cemeteries and military units sometimes have categories that should be applied.

Contributing to the Project

Anyone interested in helping with the project should feel free to do so. I usually start by finding a Soldier to work on at Library and Archives Canada and use the World War I search in the Canadian Expeditionary Force (database at Personnel Records of the First World War) and use Advanced search with Province set to New Brunswick for both Place of Birth and Attestation/Enlistment.

Add an entry to the appropriate table indicating the Profile is "In Progress." Table entries start |- Then either check for the soldier's profile existence. If it doesn't then create it. From the service record (check the PDF file as well as the Attestation papers) date and place of birth are available and frequently a parent or spouse will be mentioned. If the soldier was killed or died in service then that information will also be included. Add any information you feel is relevant to the Biography. Sometimes medals are mentioned. Also check the Commonwealth War Graves Commission for burial place of any soldier Killed in Action. You may have to search by initials to find him. This entry will frequently give the parents as well. Finally, check on the New Brunswick Provincial Archives since there may be a Biography written that can be added as info.

When possible, try to link the Profile into the main tree. This is not always possible, but the more we add to the New Brunswick area, the more likely it will happen.

When the profile is done, update the table entry to Indicate the status. If the Profile is Connected to the main tree change the I to a C. If unconnected, set it to U.

For Profiles of soldiers Killed in Action, entering them in the Roll of Honor.

Contributors should also add their name to the Contributors section at the bottom of the page. Also, any new resources for research may be added to the Additional Resources section.

Killed in Action

Those soldiers who were killed on the field during action. They are also entered on the Killed in Action page of the Roll of Honor. Most of these men were young and single and didn't leave much behind other than memories to their families. in some cases, their military personnel recorded is all that remains. They deserve to be remembered.
