Good Day All,

I'm on a journey - a difficult one I am realising! - to find out how I relate to Francois du Toit, the first du Toit French Huguenot to reach South Africa and even more difficult, where the surname du Toit had its origin.

I am very, very new at this and I'm trying to learn a bit every day.

Any support, information and advice will be highly appreciated.

Great to be part of this community.

Welcome to WikiTree & G2G Juan!

Du Toit originated in France. I believe this is the profile of the man you are talking about François du Toit. If you start building your tree and connecting into other ancestors, then you will be able to use the Relationship Finder and it will show you the line of descent.

Hello, welcome to Wikitree and genealogy. My best piece of advice (I've been at this 50 years) -- Always write down where you got your information (source). Eventually you'll run into conflicting information and you'll want to know which one to believe. And because Wikitree is in the public eye, others want to know where you got your information
