About the Eureka Stockade

The Eureka Stockade is a free space project concerning the 1854 Eureka Rebellion on the Victorian goldfields. The Team Leader is Anne Young.

The original Eureka Flag

It was one of the most significant events in Australia. It was a key event in the development of democracy in Australia.

Peter Lalor, the leader of the rebellion, later went on to become a member of parliament.

We swear by the Southern Cross to stand truly by each other and fight to defend our rights and liberties!' The diggers' oath, 30 November 1854.

The term digger, went on to become the name used for Australian Soldiers, embodying the principles of mateship adapted by the "diggers" at the Eureka Stockade.

Our Mission

The mission is to link WikiTree profiles (or create them) for people known to be involved in the Eureka stockade, the diggers, politicians, soldiers, and tell their stories, and to research their family trees. Where did they come from? What brought them here?

This will also link with the Australian Cemeteries Project.

Please go to the the Eureka Rebellion participants if you have profiles to add.

Today is the 168th anniversary of the storming of the stockade. As of today the Eureka Rebellion project has at Category:Eureka_Stockade 11 pages and 217 person profiles. Lots more research to be done but some great progress over the last year. Thanks to all project participants.
We have created a new free space page at https://www.wikitree.com/index.php?title=Space:Eureka_rebellion_obituaries&public=1 As at today there are 31 people who have obituaries or newspaper articles and who do not yet have profiles
Woohoo - we have reached 100 profiles - many hundreds more to go but a great milestone :)
