Lincolnshire County Council hopes the project will reveal more about how conflict has affected the county, its families and its industries.
Sarah Grundy, historic environments officer, explained: "Lincolnshire has a rich military heritage, from medieval battlefields to the iconic RAF bases throughout the county.
“Through this project we are looking forward to our volunteers finding out much more about this fascinating history – they could be personal stories about their own families, or research on how conflict affected the county's industry.
"We are thrilled to have received the support of the Heritage Lottery Fund and the Armed Forces Community Covenant grant programme, through grants of £76,000 and £40,000 respectively.
“We are confident that the project will help local people have a greater understanding of the sacrifices made by so many during periods of conflict in Lincolnshire, in particular the First and Second World Wars."
Full training will be provided and the results of the research will be made available on the Lincs to the Past website.
