First World War archives on Twitter
On June 10 the Memorial participated in a Twitter event as part of International Archives Day, organised by Ask Archivists and Follow an Archive. Archives, museums and libraries from all over the world searched their collections for archive material relating to the First World War and posted it on Twitter using the hashtag #ww1archives. You can read about how the day went on the Ask Archivists blog and read all the tweets here.
Unfortunately, we weren't able to post about everything in the Memorial's extensive collection, but what we did post is a snapshot of our online resources and a starting point for anyone undertaking First World War research or family history.
