Vimy96, Ancestry, and a new HistoryBlog

Canadian artillery at Vimy (Wikipedia: Vimy Ridge)
Tomorrow being the 99th 96th (sorry)anniversary of the battle of Vimy Ridge, is offering free access to its records relevant to the First World War for the next few days.

And here with the details about it is a new to me HistoryBlog:  Carrigg is a Vancouver journalist particularly interested in Australian and Canadian experiences of the First World War -- having had ancestors in both armies. He has been blogging steadily for a while on many aspects of WW1 history.
