Ancestry.ca, the commercial genealogical website, has been offering free access to a big collection of military/genealogical records -- but just to the end of tomorrow, Remembrance Day.
Ancestry promotes its Remembrance Day promotion by news of a survey that, it says, reveals "more than a third of
Canadians unaware if they had ancestors who participated in either of the World
Wars." Ancestry does not provide the survey itself, or data on its methodology and accuracy, so it is hard to know just what kind of question produced this "don't know" response.
But it suggests a fresh twist on the old question "(What) did you do in the war, daddy?"
