Digital Books of Remembrance

From my colleague, Joanne McCarthy, at Halifax Public Libraries:

The Halifax Public Libraries (Nova Scotia, Canada) is pleased to announce the launching of the online Halifax County Books of Remembrance.  If you are searching for family members who died in World War 1, World War 2 or the Korean War, have a look at our online Books of Remembrance, a digital copy of the two handmade and hand illustrated lists commemorating those who lost their lives during the Wars.

It can be found at  http://www.halifaxpubliclibraries.ca/content/view/197/397/

You can search by surname, rank, regiment or cause of death (for WW1). You can also print out a colour copy (if you have a colour printer) by clicking on the "print page" icon underneath the page display.
