Illawarra Remembers 1914 - 1918 Blog

To commemorate the centenary of World War I, Wollongong City Libraries, and its partners, has been developing an innovative on-line resource which is now live - Illawarra Remembers 1914 - 1918 - includes information and photographs that tell the stories of the Illawarra's brave men and women who went to war. This resource will continue to grow as members of the community adds stories and photographs of their relatives in WW1.

We need your help.

We will be asking you to share treasures from your family's history for this period. Over the coming months the project partners will be collecting and recording stories and scanning photographs and original documents. The next Scan & Share day will be 26 September 2014 at Wollongong Library.

Project partners are: Illawarra Family History Group, Kiama Council Library, Shellharbour City Council Library and University of Wollongong.
