World War I Records

The war started with the assassination of Archduke Ferdinand, heir to the throne of Austria-Hungary, and his wife, Sophie, on 28 June 1914 in Sarajevo.

The two opposing forces were:

  • The Allies:
- the United Kingdom
- France
- the Russian Empire
- Italy
- Japan
- the United States
- and others

  • The Central Powers
- Germany
- Austria-Hungary
- the Ottoman Empire
- Bulgaria
- and others

The purpose of this project is to determine what records were created for each country, where the records currently are, and how to access them.
