Fife Militia database

More from David McNay's Scottish Military Research blog at http://scottishmilitary.blogspot.com/2010/10/fife-military-history-project-update.html - news that Richard Dickens has now uploaded over 3000 entries to his Fife Military History Project, in a database of militiamen from Fife from 1803-54.

The project can be viewed at www.thaneofife.org.uk.

(If you have militia connections, FindmyPast is currently digitising WO 96 records (militia records) from the National Archives, with an estimated upload in September 2011. For Perth, the Militia Act census from 1802 is available at Ancestry. For details of additional records made available from Perth and Kinross Archives, see http://scottishancestry.blogspot.com/2010/03/more-perthshire-militia-records-online.html.)

(With thanks again to David)
