Our Archives and Local Studies team have compiled some useful resources on the impact of the First World War (1914-1918) on the communities of East Dunbartonshire:
- Use our research guide to uncover your own First World War family history, or the stories behind the names on your local war memorial
- Search our index to the casualty reports in the Milngavie & Bearsden Herald newspaper
- View and download our learning resource about the experience of the First World War in East Dunbartonshire on our East Dunbartonshire’s War website
- Visit our East Dunbartonshire’s War Facebook page for photos of past community events and work with schools
The East Dunbartonshire’s War project to create the First World War learning resource was funded by the Scottish Information & Library Council (SLIC) and ran from 2015-2017. EDLC Archives and pupils from East Dunbartonshire schools were also involved in the Heritage Lottery Funded Theatre of Remembrance project managed by the Scottish Council on Archives in 2018.
