Many family historians in Australia have a Boer War soldier in their ancestry, although little
is usually said about the sacrifices they made.
1999 marks 100 years since the hostilities began in South Africa and hopefully a greater
awareness will be kindled throughout Australia.
This site is intended to guide, inform and entertain those beginning their research just as
it should help the more experienced ones.
A brief overview of Australian military history, although our energy has been concentrated on
the Boer War to date.
A history of events leading up to the War in South Africa between 1899 and 1902 ... it'll be
