As part of the First World War centenary commemorations, Auckland Libraries and the Auckland Council Heritage Unit has developed an A5 research guide outlining the First World War resources available at Auckland Libraries and Auckland Council Archives. This includes resources such as Rolls of Honour and photographs from the Schmidt Collections (from the Sir George Grey Special Collections).

This research guide is intended to help people with their own research into family members or people who took part in the war. This could be a soldier on the front line, a nurse on a hospital ship or a person on the home front including conscientious objectors. The handy research prompts at the back of the guide provide a good starting place and guiding structure for research.The guide is available through Kura Heritage Collections Online.

For more information, please email: OurBoysGuide@aucklandcouncil.govt.nz

Information will also be available in the future on the Heritage et AL blog: http://heritageetal.blogspot.co.nz/
