Our Goal

The goal of this project is to research (and connect!!) the many people who fought and died in the battle of Waterloo, now in Belgium, which was fought on the 18th of June, 1815.


This project has a few members now:


Here are some of the tasks that we are working on. We could use your help.

  • Find records of the veterans and casualties of the battle of Waterloo.
  • Make profiles for each and every soldier and officer who served, whether French, English, Dutch, Prussian, Hanoverian, or Nassauer, etc.
  • Connect these profiles to our ever-growing global tree.
  • Categorise all these profiles under brigade, regiment, corps, country, etc.
  • Finish the Orders of Battle.

Profile Quality

WikiTree standards are high, and we expect as much here.

Here are some examples of well-sourced profiles with well-written biographies:

  • Dutch Profile: Johannes Hendrik Lux, Dutch Capt. of the Divisional Artillery in Chassé's 3rd. Neth. Div., later Maj. and Artillery Commander at the capture of Brielle, and later Lt-Col.
