During the summer of 1996, students from the Renfrew area digitized over 50,000 pages of Attestation papers at the Library and Archives Canada building in Renfrew, ON, as a tribute to the many residents from the town of Renfrew who enlisted in the Canadian Expeditionary Force. Many lost their lives during the war.

This project was part of the SchoolNet Digital Collections Program supported by Industry Canada and the Library and Archives Canada and included both the Attestation papers of the soldiers and — in many cases their full military file.

To check the list of soldiers included, visit the CEF site at Library and Archives Canada.
