The maps and archival research provide the context and detail, but it is the first person accounts which bring the exhibition to life. The online version of the exhibition is intended as a permanent and evolving archive, because while we have endeavoured to include everything we could, there must be more out there. We encourage anyone who can to contribute, through written or recorded memories, family genealogies, photographs, news clippings, archival sources we have missed or anything else you can think of.
If you would like to contribute to ongoing research, please add your memories, family history, suggestions or comments below. Thank you.
