Kim Phillips

Kim Phillips has served on the Committee of the Australian Jewish Genealogical Society (AJGS) since 1998 and has given presentations in 2006 and 2009 at the NSW & ACT Association of Family History Societies Annual Conference; 2004 at the 24th International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies in Jerusalem; 1999 and 2001 Society of Australian Genealogists Annual Conferences; Botany Bay Family History Society; Blue Mountains Family History Society Annual Conference; Coffs Harbour Annual Genealogy Conference and Ryde District Family History Society. She has led workshops at the Society of Australian Genealogists and Central Coast Genealogical Society.

For the past 9 years, Kim has spent her spare time on the Spirits of Gallipoli project, trying to find as much as possible about the men of the first AIF (our First Anzacs), who are either buried, or commemorated at Gallipoli.

In late May of 2009, Kim led a team of 12 self-funded enthusiasts to Gallipoli, and photographed all the headstones, memorials and cemeteries.  These photos will form part of the large amount of information already held by the project, on the men, and be made available to those interested.  See www.spirits-of-gallipoli.com
