Some ideas to get started with researching
* Ask your family about an older family member or family friend who served or was involved in the conflict.
* Does your school have an Honour Board or Memorial Wall commemorating ex-students?
* The first step for individuals who died during wartime will probably be to look them up on the Australian War Memorial website www.awm.gov.au where you will find lots of other useful links. Start by going to ‘Research a person’ at www.awm.gov.au/research/people/ and entering either a name or service number.
* Research in your local library or local history museum for any local history accounts of an individual from your area participating in your selected conflict.
* Visit the War Memorials in your local area to identify the names of locals who participated in your selected conflict. The RSL website links at www.rslsa.org.au/ may help you with this task.
* Contact your local Returned & Services League (RSL) (www.rslsa.org.au/) to discuss the Premier’s ANZAC Spirit School Prize task and whether they can help your research. The RSL is involved in the competition and have communicated details of the competition and study tour to all their branches. Such personal contact could be invaluable in developing responses.
* Visit the National Archives of Australia website at www.naa.gov.au/collection/explore/defence/service-records/army-wwi.aspx for detailed war records of individuals.
* Visit the Commonwealth War Graves Commission at www.cwgc.org/ for details on overseas war cemeteries and graves.
