Auckland Museum's Online Cenotaph Roadshow Unit will be attending Waterfront Auckland's exciting Queen's Birthday event 3-5th June 2017!

Online Cenotaph is a comprehensive online hub for stories of New Zealand service personnel; Containing the records of over 150,000 men and women who served for New Zealand from the 19th Century through to today, Auckland Museum is requesting the help of communities throughout New Zealand to enhance these records further.

Contribute to Online Cenotaph in your community.
He Pou Aroha Community Cenotaph provides portable digital access to Online Cenotaph using innovative purpose-built digitisation kiosks. The digitisation kiosks allow you to search Online Cenotaph, lay a virtual poppy against a specific person's name and contribute additional information to the database.

Each kiosk contains an object photo booth that enables you to digitise your family's war-related items such as medals, diaries, letters and more. The digitised objects are uploaded to the relevant service person's Online Cenotaph record for the world to see and future generations to remember.

Visiting The Cloud:
Auckland Museum's He Pou Aroha Community Cenotaph Mobile Roadshow Unit will be positioned within The Cloud for the duration of the Queen's Birthday event 2017. A badge making activity will be available throughout the show for children and the young at heart. Additionally, our experts will be available to help you #DiscoverYourConnection on Online Cenotaph.

Entry to the event, use of the digitisation kiosks and the badge making activity is free.
