|Some members of my family tree who have been to war|
Taking advantage of the Easter Break and a little R and R time, I have been catching up with some blog reading and came across the blog by Auckland Libraries' Kintalk Whānau Kōrero: family history blog, which challenges bloggers to share their family military stories, on the 2013 Trans Tasman ANZAC Day Blog Challenge.
The aim of the challenge is to share stories of family members who served in military conflitct, their experiences and how their story has shaped your family history. The challenge is designed to coincide with the upcoming ANZAC day celebration on the 25th April, however your story could be on family members who served in other wars other than WW1 or WW2.
What a Great opportunity to share some of our family's military tales!!
The Kintalk Blog points out that it is very easy to participate, just follow these steps:
- write a story about an Australian or New Zealander serviceman or woman's family and the impact the war had on their family history
- Post a comment with the URL to your blog on the comments section of the
2013 Trans Tasman ANZAC Day Blog Challenge page, or if don't have a blog and would still like to participate you can send your story to firstname.lastname@example.org
- Publish your post by Anzac Day, 25 April 2013.
