Auckland Museum's Online Cenotaph Roadshow Unit will be attending Waterfront Auckland's exciting Queen's Birthday event 4-6th June 2016!

Online Cenotaph is a comprehensive online hub for stories of New Zealand service personnel; Containing the records of approximately 148,000 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 "cultural village" within The Cloud for the duration of the Queen's Birthday event 2016. A kids badge making activity will be available throughout the show and 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. The Maritime Museum, MOTAT and Auckland Libraries will also be there, with a variety of activities to keep the whole family entertained.
