For Us They Fell is an exhibition about the men and women of the Waikato during World War 1.

A large part of the exhibition will be created out of information which we will crowd-source via an easy-to-use interactive website.

The website allows you to gather information about soldiers from the region - your own family members perhaps, or the men whose names are on your local war memorial. A surprising amount of information about these men is available (via the website) from different databases in New Zealand and around the world.

You don’t need any special knowledge to collect this information. All you need is an internet connection and a little time. Even a few minutes is enough to make a contribution.

(Note: Although the site works for portable devices, it’s much easier to use on the larger screen format of a computer).

Of course, if you do have relevant information or images that are not available online, the website will also help you share their stories.

Can you help us?
