Name Index- US and Australians in WW2 US archive photos on Australian Mainland
We, my wife Jenny and I, live in Australia.
As a 'spin off' to our main project, we are generating ... "an alphabetical name list of people appearing in WW2 US archives (NARA) photos taken on the Australian mainland."
Do you have a friend or relative who served in Australia 1942-1945?
Our main project is to ... "BRING HOME THE(se) IMAGES" which will ultimately gather between 10 000 and 20 000 B&W 'still' pictures sourced from around a dozen US National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) holdings.To date we have accumulated around 3000 and from these we have generated a "alphabetical name list" of all people mentioned in such NARA photos.Understandably these are mainly Americans but certainly Australian men and women,including civilians, figure from time to time.
This "name list" will be a spin off from our main project which is ultimately to provide a web-mounted "finding aid" for NARA WW2 photos "on the Australian mainland".
Presently none of this NARA material is digitised nor does NARA plan to do so.Our "finding aid" will aim to provide an overview of ALL relevant photos allowing any interested researcher to order quality prints through NARA.
Our current website - http://members.dodo.net.au/~qaww2http://members.dodo.net.au/~qaww2 is in serious need of review - strange that while a person's doing one thing he or she can't do another at same time!!Please bear with us - we certainly intend mounting this "name list" on such website once it is reviewed.MEANTIME we shall be happy to answer queries you may have.
