I have an ancestor who, it is said, joined the Foreign Legion in the late 1800s. Are there any searchable indexes which may help me find out if this is true?

Regards & thanks

Hi John, I found this, http://lists.rootsweb.com/index/other/Military:_Europe/FRENCH-FOREIGN-LEGION.html I don't know anything about it, or how good/bad it is, but hope it helps !

Weren't they famous for recruiting people under assumed names? :D

That is exactly what I thought but you have to try!
