He Pou Aroha, Community Cenotaph mobile Artefact Digitisation Unit (ADU)
Do you have a relative who served in the New Zealand armed forces?
Helensville Library is hosting one of Auckland War Memorial Museum’s ADUs during October and November.
The digitisation kiosk allows you to search Online Cenotaph, lay a virtual poppy against a specific person’s name and contribute additional information to the database.
Online Cenotaph is a comprehensive online hub for stories of New Zealand service personnel; it currently contains approximately 127,000 records in total with around 99,000 biographical records relating to WWI.
