Towards the middle of December 2013 you will notice some changes on our website.  The changes are intended to make it easier for you to find information on our site.

There will be a new way to search the material on our website, and we are also adding a lot of new digitised records from the First World War.  These changes are intended to help you find information among the more than 408,000 collection records, many with images, and over 2 million pages of digitised documents that you can find and view on the website. We will also be taking this opportunity to enhance the existing website to give it a new look and feel; while the menu bar is changing slightly, most of the content on the site will not change and we are working hard to minimise broken links.

For now, the existing searches for people in sources like the Roll of Honour, the Embarkation Roll, Nominal Roll, Honours and Awards etc. will remain. You will also be able to do similar searches using the new single search. 

The changes are the first stage of the ANZACs Connections project which will continue during 2014 and 2015. In later stages, we will be making more digitised records available, as well as enabling people to tag and comment on collection material, and to transcribe original diaries and letters.

I can't wait to receive your newsletters etc and to see what is happening to glorify the memories of all those lovely young men we lost in that crazy first war thanks to our precious war memorial they will never be forgotten for generations to come thank you so much, I wish I could think of something else to say to say how all this effects me, as a former soldier who never saw active service, I honour their sacrifice, hope all are resting in peace, I'm sad for what they missed out in life, love the family of service people, I honour them by serving in the RSL ,william tweedie.
