This site provides 1501 links to web sites that offer online information in a wide range of categories to help you with your Military Family History research. New links are added regularly.
During 2014, the 100th anniversary of World War 1, the UKMFH team will be adding as many links as we can to websites covering the many aspects of this war. If you know of any websites on these topics which we do not link to yet, please let us know.
UKMFH and UKGDL are on Facebook.
UKMFH aims to help you find out the history of your military family by linking to web sites that have online information which will help you discover what your families did and how they lived in their military life.
Muster rolls, discharge papers, pension records are all valuable sources of information which can help you complete your family tree – many are now listed under UKMFH's menus along with a whole range of other types of records.
This is a free to use web site but please note that some of the web sites that are linked to are subscription based or charge per view.

- Category - To list all the web sites for a particular category, e.g. RAF, Navy, Army, Service Records, Photographs, War Diaries etc.
- County - To list all the known MFH web sites for a particular county (or country), use this option, remembering to first select a county from the drop-down list. Note: the counties refer to the pre-1974 UK counties. For information about the county boundary changes see the Local Government Changes page within GENUKI.
- Keyword - Advanced Keyword Search. The Category and County pages provide an easy and effective means of finding links specific to many major topics of Military Family History, but they really cannot do justice to the vast range of subjects that are covered.
