At long last, I was really missing the usefulness of Geoff's WW1 search engine.


I am aware that the new site will be searchable on most fields , rather than only surname and cemetery. There will be an " export " feature which I think will be useful to many.
As ever, there will be some who will complain whatever CWGC do, but it will reflect CWGCs desire to share its data, even though they are not compelled to do so.

Geoff,

Thank you very much for bringing your 1914-1921 search engine back online. It is very much appreciated.

Cheers,

Stuart

"Its data"? Our data, surely?
And no, perhaps they are not compelled. Exempt from FOIA requests for example. So you will never know how much IT is costing them. Very odd since it is public money.

I'm afraid GSE is on hold for a while.... sorry everybody!

EDIT: typo!

I noticed this morning that CWGC now have a Unit Text search. When was this added ? No one has commented on GWF yet as far as I can see, it is something many had asked for.

Name search is still a mess.


cheers,

geoff

That's what they need to prioritise, it's awful.
