World War One (continued).

New Zealanders who resisted the First World War.
A small but significant number of men opposed New Zealand’s involvement in the First World War on religious, political, philosophical or personal grounds. Comprehensive lists of these individuals are now available due to original research by the Research and Publishing Group of the New Zealand Ministry for Culture and Heritage. The site provides links to lists of Conscientious Objectors, Sedition Convictions, and Military Defaulters. There is also the report of the Religious Advisory Board regarding the 273 objectors still in prison in 1919, and an article discussing conscientious objection and dissent in New Zealand.
http://www.nzhistory.net.nz/war/nzers-who-resisted-ww1

New Zealand Troopship Magazines.
Auckland Museum Library in partnership with Dunedin Public Library has digitized all the known magazines and souvenir publications associated with World War I troopships from New Zealand. Content and presentation vary greatly, from poetry, sketches, letters, short essays and advertisements. The magazines were published on board, at ports visited en route, or in destination countries. There are also some magazines published on homeward voyages. Many include personnel lists. Each can be viewed as a pdf file and is keyword searchable.
http://tinyurl.com/qb2kh4k
http://muse.aucklandmuseum.com/
How to search the Troopship Magazine database:
1. Find the man you’re looking for on the Auckland Museum Cenotaph Database. This will provide the name and troopship number of the vessel he sailed on. http://muse.aucklandmuseum.com/databases/cenotaph/locations.aspx#
      Example: James Robert MURDOCK (sic), who sailed in 1916 aboard Transport #56, the Maunganui.
2. Go to http://tinyurl.com/qb2kh4k Click on Refine Search. This brings up the Advanced Search box with the parameters already set to search ‘Troopship Magazine’.
3. Insert the search year, in this case 1916.
4. Search the results for name of vessel or transport number. Some troopship magazine titles are obtuse. In this case the title was self-explanatory, S1067, ‘The Kit Bag…
5. Click on the title and the pdf file will open. Use the Find function to search within the document.

Discovering ANZACS.
The National Archives of Australia in partnership with Archives New Zealand has developed this innovative website to create extensive access to contemporary records. The site includes, but is not limited to, records from:
•   Australian Imperial Force
•   Australian Naval and Military Expeditionary Force
•   Royal Australian Navy
•   Australian Flying Corps
•   Australian Army Nursing Service
•   Depot unit personnel
•   Official artists, photographers, war correspondents and historians such as CEW Bean
•   Internees
•   Munitions workers
•   New Zealand Boer War service records.
A large selection of photographs is also available, covering battle sites, personnel, maps and plans, some soldiers and some internees. Users can submit material to add to the database.
http://discoveringanzacs.naa.gov.au/home/
    Example: Lt. Col. William George MALONE, Wellington Infantry Battalion, killed at Gallipoli.
The page lists his basic enlistment data, the names of his two wives, and provides a photograph and links to his probate and his entry in the Dictionary of New Zealand Biography.

Measuring the ANZAC’s
This is a community effort led by a group of academics and supported by The Zooniverse, the world’s largest citizen science initiative, to transcribe the key documents from World War 1 personnel files. The projects aim is to collect information from Attestations, Military History sheets, Statements of Service, and Death Notifications to further genealogical and academic research.
