Postcard Project

About The WWI Postcard Project

A century ago, thousands of Kingston and Frontenac County soldiers and other personnel enlisted in the Great War, while their families and friends waited anxiously at home for news of them. These people lived in your town, in your neighbourhood, and maybe even in your home.

The KFPL Home Town, Home Front WWI Postcard Project invited Kingston-Frontenac residents to learn about the families who lived in their communities during World War I. Everyone was welcome to participate, and to share their stories and discoveries.

We've collected some of these stories, about the soldiers, nursing sisters, and families who live in Kingston-Frontenac a century ago.
