Remembrance Day

Armistice Day. With the centenary of World War I fast approaching major collecting institutions are announcing special projects to mark the centenary. 

National Archives of Australia have a new site - Discovering Anzacs.
'Discovering Anzacs' is a website being jointly developed by the National Archives of Australia and Archives new Zealand. It will have a unique profile of every Anzac who enlisted in World War One, linked to their service record. You can help tell the story of Australia and New Zealand during the War by building on profiles and adding your own family stories, photos or details of their service. 
The National Archives (K) has launched a new portal - First World War 
National Archives (UK) hold the official UK government records of the First World War, including a vast collection of letters, diaries, maps and photographs. Discover the online collections, research guides and educational resources to learn about the history behind the war.
The Archive will be marking the centenary of the war with an extensive programme, spanning a five-year period from 2014 – 2019. With a rolling series of digitised record releases, online and on-site events and education resources being added to this portal as we move through the centenary period, this will open up the unique collection of First World War records as never before.
