Your Family History
The Army Museum of Western Australia is not a repository of Army records. If you are researching army service records of family members or others then you should first try these external sources for guidelines on searching and for access to records:-
Army History Unit – Family History The Army History Unit website provides a Family History page which includes a useful summary of how and where to search for information relating to army service from the Boer War period (1899-1902) through to post-World War Two conflicts. It provides direct links to many record sources and also advises where you can obtain service records of those who enlisted in the Australian Regular Army from 1948, including those who did not see active service.
Australian War Memorial – Research and Family History The Family History section of the AWM website provides useful information on researching family history records and links to a number of record sources.
Our Links page has an additional section “Opening the Door to World War One” that provides some useful resources for specifically researching World war One.
If you have tried on-line searches and have reached a dead end please send full details of your query via email to [email protected]. Due to demand, a response may take some time and priority is given to Army Museum Foundation members.
