Hi all, I am Nicole and I have been researching my ancestry on off for about 15 years. I am from Cape Town, South Africa and currrently living in The Netherlands.

I am searching for more information on my family names: DARKOW (born Penkun, Randow, Pomerania and arrived on Cape Town with his parents in 1860) & VAN SCHALKWYK (born in Newlands, Cape Town)

Welcome to wikitree.  Where are those families from?  If you edit your question and add some 'tags' which is a box that you can fill in with the countries or locations, that might generate interest from people with knowledge in those areas.

Hi Nicole,

Welcome to WikiTree, I'm have South African roots too, we have a project that you could join if you're keen. Here's a link to the South Africa Project. Many of the profiles for our SA ancestors from the 1700's and before are all already here so I'm sure it won't take you long to connect your branches to other's. Happy connecting!
