Welcome to Illawarra Remembers

As the 100 year anniversary of the Great War approaches many institutions are expanding their online collections and digitising items that relate to 1914-1918.

Extensive work is also being done to catalogue and describe these collections in ways that allow items to be linked across collections and institutions using web technologies.

This online resource has been funded by the State Library of NSW and the Library Council of NSW.The Illawarra Remembers 1914-1918 project is being coordinated by Wollongong City Libraries in partnership with the Illawarra Family History Group, Kiama Library, Shellharbour City Libraries and the University of Wollongong

The stories which have been added to the website have been made possible by local families who have shared their precious family stories, photographs, documents and memorabilia. These stories were collected during public Scan & Share days during 2013 & 2014.
