ARMED FORCES & CONFLICT
If you're putting together a family tree and are looking to search military records, these lists are essential for uncovering your ancestry. They include any conflict involving Australian and New Zealand armed forces in World War 1, World War 2, The Boer War, and many others - such as The Soudan War and even the New Zealand Maori campaigns.
"What information about my ancestors can they provide?"
Our military records often have a great deal of information about each armed forces member, including:
- "Last Address" details and information about each where they were enlisted to the forces
- Occupation and marital status
- Information about their injuries or death
- Where they served and fought, and under what ranking.
These military records are an invaluable genealogy tool, and often provide the missing link in building your online family tree. Some of them even contain recorded letters from soldiers during battle and some wonderful photos you simply won't find anywhere else. If you think any of your family ancestors spent time in the military, you can't afford not to explore these Australian and New Zealand Armed Forces records.
To search these record sets individually, choose a record data set from the left hand of the screen in the "Records In This Collection" menu.
