Yep thats hat I've been doing so far but, well there's a lot of days you know. And thanks for pointing out errors, I'll get to fixing them soon.
There are over 35,000 of them. I would strongly discourage anyone from doing anything 35,000 times. It's probably faster, and you'll learn a lot more along the way, by teaching yourself how to code and write a bot that can trawl through wikipedia entries for dates.

The OP can't count.
When 6 of 7 colonies finally decided to federate in 1899, they picked a date, the first day of the new century. They waited over a year and a new country of Australia arose on the 1st of January, 1901. The Colony of New Zealand decided to go it alone.

Another reason for asking others to have a look at this project is to help find errors so I'm always happy to receive corrections however as far as I can see I do have the Commonwealth of Australia forming on January 1st 1901. Is there something more technical I should be aware of here? Again looking forward to input.
