A bit late as usual, but this is the final Newsletter for 2015. The great news is that the DVD now has 702 061 names on it in 3010 cemeteries, an increase of 63 610 names and 37 cemeteries. In parallel with that, but rarely overlapping, eGGSA now has a total of 646 809 published photos on their site, an increase of 43 126 photos for 2015. Well done to all the contributors and to the many people working behind the scenes to make this Project a success.
