Alberta Family Histories Society's CEF Nominal Rolls
The Alberta Family Histories Society has placed an interesting resource on their website, specifically the nominal rolls of the 50th Battalion, Canadian Expeditionary Force, as well as those for the 3rd, 12th and 13th Regiments, CEF. As the site notes, these were compiled "by AFHS member Lt Col W. van der Schee and were published by the AFHS in two volumes in 1994." The published versions of the rolls are still available for purchase via the site. Visitors to the site search the rolls first by choosing the first letter of the individual's surname, which leads to an alphabetized chart - integrating all four units - and containing the information found in the original nominal rolls as printed by the Department of Militia and Defence during the First World War.
