George DeFrieze is a Wonderful WikiTreer

+15 votes

This  George is an Over-over-over-Wonderful WikiTreer!!!!!

Our NUMBER one at X-a-Thons of the DRP last years.

My wonderful pupil and my sweetest growler. Always so much fun to message (email) with. He makes me always smile big!

But most important George, who dared to ask "how to" at any at the DRP and WT at Bea and me, and learned fast, his age is a secret but be sure it is legendary, managed it to get how to add reliable sources and read documents from The Netherlands, especially Friesland.

As he managed he was our number one and fastest and best at adding and receiving points at X-a-Thons.

His frustrations lies into new ones changing things at profiles that are well sourced, new ones not knowing what they cause. Love how he handles that. Although I think he scares some "fritters" at WT away who think they know better. laugh

George I think, and I think you know too, you found a friend for live the moment you mailed me again, after little mail before,  as I was on a vacation in Senegal in January 2018.

Besides your and your families big supports to Africa - not only finacial but working there too - and that does not have to do anything with WT anyway-  but shows you and your family are taking their social obligations

You changed WT!  You made WT so much better and I am sure you will do in the future if you do not have to mow your land. laughheart

Within 3 years you,  as you are a member of WT since 2017 now, you added almost 990.00 contributions!!! Who did?

You received to little thank you's though for what you did. I am sorry about that. But the cause is you work in silence, not bragging about your contributions at any.

I know you do not care.  But I know from experience the "thank you's" makes someone feel acknowledged.

Again at our X-a Thons you added more contributions as any others, even more than all members of our Project did together.

I know it is getting to heavy for you. Just please do not feel wrong. Bea and I understand and only love what you did!!!!!

You participated to pay Bea and me back for our HELP? George we are even. Verrrrrrrrrrrrrry even.

I know you re a winner but please, if you like to participate we love that but please keep it slow.

George you are just a


Besides I just love we met, as I love you as you are. Please stay in my mail. Even about politics. laughheart

Thank you!

Humble bow,

Hi George,

Reading the message from Astrid, made me smile. The secret of your age will remain a secret, but I'm so happy to read and realize that there's still time for me left to learn and get to maybe 10% of the numbers you've realized.

We are so proud and glad to have you as one of our most Wonderfull Wikitreers.
