Total Slovenia News: First Database of Slovenia’s WWI Military Dead Now Online. Please be warned that the picture included with this article is very graphic. “The first edition of a database of the military victims of the First World War coming from the territory of present-day Slovenia has been finalised, featuring the names of 26,224 people who were either killed or went missing in the WWI campaigns.” The database is currently available only in Slovene, but I found it translated fine.
Eastern Daily Press: Find out if you live in a house that once belonged to a First World War soldier. “A new website has been launched enabling people to search their postcode and find out if they live in or near a house that once belonged to a soldier from the First World War.” I briefly checked out the site, and while there were listings all over the world, most of them were in the UK and Europe.

The Scotsman: The Royal Scots bring history into the present with digital archive. “Edinburgh-born James Fleming was only 22 when he was killed in battle in Belgium on October 14, 1918. The son of Archibald and Jane Fleming, of 31 Nelson Street, was a lance corporal in the 11th battalion of The Royal Scots during the Great War. The young soldier is one of 11,313 names memorialised on The Royal Scots digitised Roll of Honour that has been collated in honour of the centenary of the end of the First World War. Colonel Martin Gibson is the commander of the larger digitisation project, of which the roll is the first stage, which will eventually see the whole of The Royal Scots archive online.” I could not find the actual address of the Roll in the article, maybe I missed it.
