April 25th is Anzac Day. A time to reflect on the impact of war, as well as history and family. In commemoration of Anzac Day, a new online resource called findmypast.com.au is helping people build their own family wartime memories with the Anzac Memory Bank. This online commemorative contains heroic stories, photos, and expert information about Australian and New Zealand involvement in all wars and conflicts around the world.
People have shared their own personal and family stories, photos and diary entries so others can learn what it was like to live through these times of turmoil.
Leading up to Anzac Day to Friday 26 April, 2013, findmypast.com.au is offering free access to its entire international military collection for people to research their ancestors’ military history. The comprehensive collection includes 3.6 million records from Australia, New Zealand, Britain, Ireland and the United States.
Anzac Day is a national day of remembrance in Australia and New Zealand, held on the anniversary of the Gallipoli landing on the 25th April each year. It is a day to honour those that sacrificed their lives, those that came home and all the families affected by wars all around the world. The Anzac Day Memory Bank provides a place for people to remember the sacrifices of these brave men and women.
