Server up again. Let me know if you have further problems
OK thanks it seems to be working now.
Same here, thanks Louis
Although it isn't showing as an error, when we see it should we be removing the South African genealogical coding (e.g. the b2c4d3e5 from the suffix box of https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Trichardt-4) or do I just leave that?
It should show as an error ?

Hi Louis

Something funny, Some of my errors I correct last year (Unique names ) show up as an error again :(


Just mark them as false hide forever
OK guys - I am calling it a day - 11 hours I think I have done my bit for today. Will be back tomorrow!
Net 'n baie groot dankie aan elkeen wat gehelp het oor die naweek.

Altyd 'n voorreg om saam julle te werk.

Julle is STERRE!!!!
It was fun. I am sorry I couldn't participate yesterday - life happened!

Are there problems with the server?

Hi, I'm having specific problems trying to merge Van_Blerk-69 into Van_Blerk-9.

Wikitree cannot do it (says the merger may have been done, but when I check, it hasn't been done) and entering Van_Blerk-9 goes to Van_Blerk-32, which is an utterly different person. Whats going on?
by Anton Bergh G2G5 (5.4k points)

Hierdie was al in Dec 2015 gedoen Daar is geen merge op Van Blerk-69 nie en ook nie op van blerk-32 nie

11:56: Esmé (Pieterse) van der Westhuizen edited the data for Anna Catharina Philippina (van Blerk) Pretorius. (Merged Van Blerk-9 into van Blerk-32) [Thank Esmé for this]


I worked it out: it's Van-Blerk-69 and Van-Blerck-9 that need to be merged. I left out the c in Van-Blerck-9. Does anyone know if the surname should be van Blerck or van Blerk (with or without the c)?
I have found secondary sources with both spellings and put them on his wife's profile where they are more relevant.

Baptized 9 April 1784, probably in Drakenstein. I think Ronel may have a photo in that case.
