This event is part of the Adelaide City Library History Hub program

The National Archives has developed a new website Discovering Anzacs to coincide with the centenary of World War I. The website provides access to World War I service and repatriation records as well as other records from the period relating to internment and copyright. This session will provide an overview of what the site offers and show how you can get involved by contributing your own stories and photos or by transcribing records. There will also be the opportunity for participants to explore the site themselves and ask questions about their own family history research.
