    Default Re: CWGC WW2 Air Forces Database (114400+ / 93% Done!) Only 7,800 to go!

    Last year http://www.rafcommands.com/forum/sho...148#post146148
    This was the status
    100063 records (81.78%) have circumstances of death.
    22294 records (18.22%) do not have details.

    Two years into this project, we are at
    114,580 records (93.59%) are "Accounted for".
    7,854 are still unaccounted. (6.41%)

    So the past year, we made updates to 14,440 entries, bringing us much closer to the end.

    A shout out to member Jon Hayworth, who helped us knock out nearly 3000 of this year's updates.

    We have almost reached a point where it is like squeezing blood out of water. There are still 4000 unaccounted airmen from England, perhaps someone hit the lottery and pays for the death certificates, we can get this pretty close to 98% done? :-)

    This week I implemented a (hidden) search feature in our CWGC DB.. thought I would socialize it here

    This will allow you to simply take the CWGC UID number and query my site..

    Eg: the CWGC Site, you take the bold/italics part
    https://www.cwgc.org/find-records/find-war-dead/casualty-details/1536592/NORMAN%20STERLING%20EWART/


    And append it to the RAF Commands URL
    http://www.rafcommands.com/database/wardead/details.php?qnum=1536592


    Ofcourse going from the RAFCommands page to CWGC is always easier - just click the Icon..

    Default The WW2 Accounted Airmen Coverage is now at 95% - Thanks Jon!

    I had to call out one milestone that we crossed today.

    The current number of Accounted Airmen in our CWGC based DB has crossed 95% Completion!

    In October 2020 we were at:

    114,580 records (93.59%) are "Accounted for". 7,854 are still unaccounted. (6.41%)


    Since then, it has been like pulling teeth, but pretty much it was Jon Heyworth who has been carrying out slog on a daily basis. Having dug up excess of 1600 (if not 1700) entries to help us cross the 95% Accounted Milestone

    And on the side many other entries have been improved 'qualitatively' .. thats another story.. Great work Jon!

    Now only 6100 airmen left!
