Heather Wilkinson Rojo of Nutfield Genealogy started an Honor Roll Project in 2010. The goal of the project is to post photos of various war memorials and honor rolls along with the transcriptions of the names on the memorials/honor rolls in order to make the names available for search engines. In this way, people can search for family members, ancestors and friends. This is a VERY worthwhile project and I want to participate in even a small way to support Heather (my blogging mentor and, incidentally, a distant cousin).
To participate in Heather's project this Veterans Day, I offer photos and transcriptions of names from the war memorials in Leesburg, the county seat of Loudoun County, Virginia. Leesburg is located about 35 northwest of Washington, DC.
