Find the digger in your family tree

This year is the 100th anniversary of the Gallipoli landings. Almost half of Australia’s eligible men enlisted for service in WW1 – was one of your ancestors amongst them?

ANZAC digger

Are you aware of how much information is out there about your World War I ancestors?

On Monday 9 February, Tea Tree Gully Library will host an information session, ‘Find the digger in your family tree’. This session will show people how to research and extract information from the National Archives of Australia and the Australian War Memorial, as well as other online sources.

Local History Services Officer David Brooks will help guide people to not only find the digger in their family tree, but also discover what experiences they had while on active service overseas.

This is a support event for Tea Tree Gully Library’s Field of Remembrance project, a commemorative event to honour 100th anniversary of ANZAC Centenary.

If you would like to attend, you can book online or phone 8397 7333.
