Don’t forget! 25 April 2011 is ANZAC day – a national day of remembrance for Australian and New Zealanders who died at war.
To commemorate this significant day for both our nations, Twigs of Yore and the Central Auckland Research Centre, Auckland Libraries are jointly hosting an ANZAC Day blogging event.
- Write a blog post about an Australian or New Zealander serviceman or woman’s family, and the impact war had on their family history.
- Publish your post by 25 April 2011.
- Post a comment with the URL on my original ANZAC Day blogging post, or under discussions on the Auckland Research Centre’s Facebook page.
By the end of April, all submissions will be listed in a summary posting on this blog and Auckland Libraries’ Kintalk blog.
I hope you will join us.
Actually, I’m not entirely sure I’ll be able to participate myself! I have not yet discovered any Australians (or New Zealanders) in my family tree who died in military service. I may have to have a chat with my co-conspirator Seonaid (@genebrarian) about whether I can bend the rules a little…
Regardless, I look forward to reading your posts!
