Remembering World War I Yarmouth Connections
Wartime Heritage Centenary Remembrance Initiative
   Do you have a relative from Yarmouth Nova Scotia who served in the First World War? Those Who Served (1914-1918) The   Wartime   Heritage   Association   has   now   published   "Those   Who   Served   1914   -1918"    on-line;   a   working   list   of   men   and   women   of Yarmouth Nova Scotia who served during World War I. This project is the cornerstone of the Association's First World War Centenary Remembrance Initiatives. Many   hours   of   volunteer   time   have   gone   into   the   historical   research   to   create   a   detailed   list   of   all   those   from   the   Town   and   County of Yarmouth who served for this on-line publication, as well as the supporting database with additional details on each individual. Included   on   that   list,   Wartime   Heritage   has   identified   181   individuals   from   Yarmouth   who   died   during   the   war;   each   with   profiles telling   their   stories.   One   of   the   discoveries   the   research   uncovered   were   the   23   men   with   connections   to   Yarmouth   who   died   during   the war and whose names were not engraved on the Yarmouth War Memorial when it was completed in 1923. With   no   living   Veterans   of   World   War   I   left   in   Canada   or   abroad,   the   oral   histories   from   relatives,   the   photographs,   the   letters   home and the archival documentation such as their original wartime sign-up (attestation) papers enable us to learn about "Those Who Served". If   you   know   of   someone   missing   from   our   list   or   you   recognize   any   of   the   existing   names,   we   encourage   you   to   please   share   photos, letters and memories with us so we may include them in the collection. Contact Us Wartime   Heritage   is   a   proud   partner   of   the   First   World   War   Centenary   Partnership   Program   by   the   Imperial   War   Museum.   The Partnership   led   by   Imperial   War   Museum   is   a   growing   network   of   over   3,000   not-for-profit   organizations   from   50   countries   planning   to mark the Centenary.
