Researching military ancestors

The centenary of World War I has prompted many Australians to delve into their own family history and discover the wartime experiences of their ancestors. Us historians at Way Back When have worked on a number of war-related history projects in the last few years and become pretty adept at uncovering these forgotten Anzacs and interpreting the sometimes complicated and often hidden military archives. So we thought, why not share the tips and tricks we've developed over time with those people wanting to know more?

We recently gave a presentation for the City of Boroondara at Hawthorn Library on researching military ancestors and it was met with great enthusiasm from attendees. So we've decided to take this show on the road. If you are interested in having us speak to your group or organisation, please contact us.
