This project is for those who have WikiTree profiles of Australians and New Zealanders who were Anzacs and to honour their service. We shall remember them.
The main aims are to grow the trees of these Anzacs and learn more about their subsequent lives.
Anzac stands for Australia New Zealand Army Corps, which started in WWI and the landing at Gallipoli Cove where over 10,000 Anzacs were killed. Anzac Day in Australia and New Zealand is on the 25th of April, the day of the landing at Gallipoli, and is probably Australia and New Zealand's most important national occasion. Anzac Day is now for all Australian and New Zealand Military Personnel from all wars.
