The VWM – For future generations
Posted on: Mon 17 Sep 2018
Chief Executive of the Virtual War Memorial, Sharyn Roberts explains how the work that has been done by Ellen Parrick and Wendy Loneragan, other individuals, organisations and communities can be stored and available from the platform of the Virtual War Memorial. The VWM’s versatility enhances the capacity for people to find and to record those stories of individuals who’ve gone to war for Australia… an invaluable central repository of diverse data with the ability to link from it to records held at National Archives, the AWM, Trove and literally anywhere that holds a digital source of information. Sharyn also explains about the VWM’s schools project… many of us have bemoaned the lack of Australian history being taught in our schools today, and this project by the VWM goes some way to addressing that, and getting our children interested in history.
