Anzac Day is coming up on April 25th, and Findmypast.com.au are are asking those with Australian or New Zealand military ancestors to join them in honouring your Anzacs and the sacrifices they made for their country.
Can you even imagine what it was like for Anzacs during war? Findmypast.com.au is creating an Anzac Memory Bank to honour and remember the brave men and women who represented their country during war. The Anzac Memory Bank will commemorate not only the lost lives but also the brave men and women who made it home safely again.
They will share real-life stories from soldiers, odes to those dearly departed, war stories, photos, as well as detailed information on the Boer War, WWI, WWII and Vietnam War, and you will also have the ability to ask their experts your military questions.
Share your appreciation for these brave men and women and send your thanks …
