This database contains data indexed from war memorials by members of ABGH Parchemin, a genealogical association in France. The index includes war memorials of French soldiers from more than 375 communities in the Ille-et-Vilaine and Côtes-d'Armor departments of Brittany.
The majority of records fall between 1914 and 1945, when France lost more than 1.5 million soldiers during World War I and World War II. Other records may date back as early as 1870.
There are over 31 thousand records in this database. While this is a significant amount of records, it does not necessarily cover all war memorials or gravestones for this time and place.
Information listed in this database includes:
- Memorial location (city and department)
- Death date
- Conflict served in
Some records also include comments which may provide additional information about the soldier’s place of death.
