Default Very useful database

Hello,

is just stumbled over an recent article that the around 700 members of german genealogy club have voluntarily put all names and information from the "Verlustlisten" into a database with scanned reference to the pages. The Verlustlisten were issued by the german war mistery from 1914 until mid 1919.

There are 31.000 pages of each containing 300 names of german WWI soldies. Listed are all fallen, wounded or missing soldiers.

if you search a name, than click on the name of the result-list and it leads to the jpg.

I hope that is helpful for our imperial militaria collectors.

Regards
Christian

Christian,

Thank you very much. Just found out through this awesome source you shared, my great grand uncle was killed in WWI most probably in the Somme. Got his military info. as well. Tiny piece of puzzle back in place. Feels great. A legacy to my future. Cheers, Alex

What's really nice is that it not only lists, deaths, but also wound dates, soldier's unit and in some cases the place of death (for instance, "in English captivity" or "in the field hospital of the XV. Army Corps"). Unfortunately, by 1915 these rolls were already getting behind with the crush of new casualties, so later additions don't have as much information as the earlier ones.
