As of May 2018, I am 26. I believe I have at least three relatives (a grandfather and two granduncles) who were in the 28th Maori Battalion. I want to research more and, perhaps sometime in the future, update their profiles with what I learn about them.
I'm very interested in history as a discipline and firmly believe that the actions of every individual ─ guided by their ideas, beliefs, goals, and values ─ affect the course of history. Exactly to what extent each individuals' actions played in the complexity of major events is the task of the historian and of historical research. To help the historians of today and tomorrow, we need to provide as much information as we can about the myriad of individuals who existed at those various times and places in history. We hope that this will aid the historians in providing ever more detailed and richer accounts of past events.
