My 'To Do' List

Following are some likely sources on Australians in the Boer War that I've identifed but as yet neither examined nor partly processed (see the Progress page for material in the latter category).

If anyone has access to source materials in either list (or anything else that is relevant) and wants to volunteer to contribute to the database, the type of information being extracted is outlined on the Submissions page.  Any assistance will, of course, be credited to you in the Acknowledgements.
