Mapping our Anzacs

Mapping our Anzacs is a fantastic resource which allows you to locate a service person as well as add information about that person and build a tribute to them online.  As described on the website, 'The heart of Mapping our Anzacs is a tool to browse 375,971 records of service in the Australian Army during World War I according to the person's place of birth or enlistment.'  
You simply find the town on the map that the person was born in, or the town that they enlisted in, and after clicking on the link a list of names will appear.  The person you are looking for should appear in this list and after clicking on their name you will be taken to the National Archives Australia website where the persons service record, having been digitised, will be waiting for you to read!
