WW1 Internment on the Isle of Man

Was someone from your family interned on the Isle of Man during the First World War?

To find out visit www.imuseum.im where under People (Advanced Search) you can search the names of internees extracted from the original source material (where it exists) held in the Manx National Heritage Library and Archives: LINK

Equally fascinating and unique a record are the 3,000 glass plate photographic images of internees and life in the camps, all digitally available on iMuseum. We need help identifying many of the internees, maybe you can help? View the images: LINK
