Sarfarnaa, Many thanks for the link to this new anzac site - wonderful
the family history link is so hard to use- im trying to find when and where my great grandmother and grandfather arrived in Australia - only know my grandmothers married name and her date of birth. Trying to use the date event business is driving me crazy- her brother was in the Boer war. i cannot enter a date-
Which website are you talking about that you are finding hard to use? If you are looking for an immigration record, where you search will depend on the approximate year. Did she arrive after 1900 or before? Was she single then or did she arrive with her husband? If she was single you will need to know her maiden surname first. If you want to post some details we will see if we can help. Please don't post any information about people who are still living though. At the top of the page you will see a button that says '+Add' - just click on that and you can start your own discussion with a title.
this website includes Boer War records as well - http://discoveringanzacs.naa.gov.au/
