Boer War Ancestors?

If you have ancestors who fought in the Boer War, both Ancestry and Find My Past have searchable databases.

Ancestry's can be found here: http://search.ancestry.co.uk/search/db.aspx?dbid=1912

And FMP's can be found here:

FamilySearch also shared a searchable database of British Concentration Camps from the Boer War. That database can be found here:

Happy Searching!
