He is new. He has to learn to find his way around, that's why I didn't give the short answer :)

ps - I did sort the index by date for him
Awesome Louis.

I immediately  saw that it was sorted.

No harm done, Thanks for being so thoughtful.
Thank you

Maybe I should have clarified the question further. Was the first Venter into SA from Germany or France? What is the general opinion. Please see. www.venter.co/venter/History.htm
Please read the profile at the link Ronel gave. It is discussed there.
Thanks Louis

But then the original Venter is only Hendrik Venter and not Hendrik Conrad ?
It would seem so. I see that both data sets are provided for on the profile. Maybe you will be the researcher that can provide conclusive proof ;)
