The AIF Project is a database at UNSW Australia Canberra for searching members of the Australian Imperial Force (AIF) who were recruited by the Australian government and sent to help the British empire during World War I. “The AIF database is drawn from a range of official sources, including personal files on the National Archives website, and Embarkation and Nominal Rolls on the Australian War Memorial website.”

“Over 330,000 Australian men and women enlisted and served overseas during The First World War. Who were they? The AIF database provides an insight into who these people were – fragments from hundreds of thousands of lives, each with a personal story and often, a personal tragedy.”

The AIF database includes Anzacs and the site is able to show enlistments by state, marital status, and given names. (For example, it can show New Zealand-born members of the AIF.)
