| Army biographies in the SoG library||
The Society of Genealogists' library contains much biographical material on those who served in the army. This dataset, compiled by Nicholas Newington-Irving over many years,lists some of the surnames for which material exists, and where it can be found in our collection.
It relates primarily, but not exclusively, to commissioned officers in the British Army and the pre 1947 Indian Army.
There is much else in the library that cannot be shown here (eg Information from regimental histories, the Dictionary of National Biography,etc.). However it gives an indication of the breadth of records we hold fort those researching army ancestors. The list is particualarly useful for locating aricles on military men that have appeared in some of the journals we hold.
The shelf mark for each item is given in square brackets at the end of the entry. If a visit to the library is not possible it may be possible to order a photocopy of the item through the Society's 'Search and Copy' service, details of which are given on our website.
