Researching Soldiers in Your Local Community

In Association with the Royal Australian Historical Society.

Chair: Christine Yeats

Speaker: Elizabeth Heffernan

A presentation investigating the online resources available for researching First and Second World War Australian service personnel. Participants are invited to follow along the Internet trail with their own local soldier to ask questions such as: How did the people who once lived in our hometowns and suburbs experience war? How do we remember them? What can this tell us about the forces of change and resilience within our own communities?
