Women’s Land Army Index Cards digitised by Ancestry
I’m beyond thrilled to share that Ancestry has digitised the index record cards of Land Girls who worked during the Second World War. You can now search online to see if your family member or relative was in the Women’s Land Army and if so, find out the following information:
- Maiden name
- County of employment
- Place of employment
- Birth date
- Age at enrolment
- Date of enrolment
- Date of employment
- Date of release
- WLA membership number
To find out more about this amazing resource for those researching the Women’s Land Army, read a blog by Vicky Iglikowski-Broad about the new collection (drawing on material from this site).
