Are your great-grandfather's letters home from the Front in a box in your attic? Have you laughed or cried over your great-grandmother's WWI letters or postcards? Are there First World War photos from far-flung places in your family albums? Well then, we'd like to see them and hear your family stories about them!
We're helping to build Europe's first ever online archive of private stories and material from World War One in time for the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of war in 1914, and we need your help.
On Monday 5 November
, we're holding a WWI Family History Roadshow at the beautiful Hunt Museum in Limerick
. If you can come along and join us there between 10am and 5pm
, we'd love to see you. All WWI memorabilia welcome (photos, letters, postcards, medals, coins...). We'll scan or photograph what you bring along, and they'll be archived online along with your family stories that bring these objects to life. To see the treasures and amazing stories people shared with us back in March when we had our first Roadshow Day in Dublin, have a look here
There'll be historians and experts on hand to answer your questions on the day, and we'll be joined by Mr Jimmy Deenihan, Minister for Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht, whose Department has made these Roadshow Days possible.
