The goal of this project is to name all of the Dutch, and those who served under the Dutch, at the Battle of Waterloo in 1815.

Right now this project has 2 members, Alex Fransen and Peter van Munster.

Here are some of the tasks that we are working on.

Phase 1:

  • Add profiles of GOCs and COSs;
  • Add profiles of various ranking officers (Maj-Gen., Lt-Col., Lt-Gen., Col., Lt., Maj., Capt., etc...)

Phase 2

  • Find Dutch profiles on WikiTree who have fought at Waterloo, and link them underneath their relevant commanding officers;
  • Gradually (over much time) add all Dutch soldiers who fought at Waterloo.


OpenArch.nl has a collection called 'Waterloo gratificaties 1815', which details money paid to those who fought at Waterloo. This invaluable collection consists of about 29,910 records, and gives information on name, rank, unit and subunit, and the amount paid to the soldier.

Should you not add a goal of trying to find birth, death, and other records for these men and attempt to link them to the tree? This is the goal of WikiTree...to connect to our global tree.

THanks, Natalie,
