13 As part of our Bringing Them Home project, we have now indexed over 300,000 names of Indigenous people that appear in our records. The project was initiated in response to the Bringing Them Home report to help Indigenous people find information about themselves and their families. Although external funding for our Bringing Them Home activities ceased in June 2002, we are continuing to fund this important activity in Canberra, Melbourne and Darwin. We have also begun compiling a list of Indigenous soldiers who served in World War I. This list draws on lists from Reveille magazine, other publications and the Australian War Memorial. Names provided by living family members and from our WW I service dossiers have been added. We hope to make the list available to people attending our information sessions on Indigenous family history. A brochure explaining the Bringing Them Home name index and how to access it is available from our offices. Information about how to find Indigenous records is also available on our website at www.naa.gov.au. t a moving and colourful ceremony in Adelaide we signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with Nun- kuwarrin Yunti of SA Inc to further improve access to Commonwealth and State government records for Indigenous people in South Australia. Acting Director-General Anne-Marie Schwirtlich signed the MOU with Basil Sumner, Chairperson of Nunkuwarrin Yunti, a process repeated by signatories for three other MOUs from State Records SA, the State Library of SA and SA Births, Deaths and Marriages. Anne-Marie spoke of the importance of records in re-establishing family and community links and highlighted our commitment to the Bringing Them Home report recommend- ations through our indexing project (see below) and MOUs.
