Hi Susanna, I sent you a message back in October. Just checking to make sure you received it, as I haven't heard from you.

I'm one of the co-Leaders of the Nordic Project, which oversees Sweden Project. While going through some error reports, we've come across a few profiles that we would like to discuss with your Project leadership.

If you could reply by email, it would be easier to include everyone involved.

Dagsê Susanna, Ek het onlangs 'n boek gepubliseer oor die de Bruyn familie wat vir meer as 100 jaar skoenwinkels bedryf het. Ek is tans besig om iets oor die Adelaars en Dreyers verbintenis te versamel. Hulle was ook betrokke in die oorlog.
Hi Susanna, could I please be added to the COGH project and get the badge. My family is deeply rooted in so many of the South African surnames. Keen to explore these further. Many thanks and baie dankie! Dee

HI Susan, I'd like to join the COGH Project. I'm trying to find my great grandmothers family. She was born Beatrice Muller in 1903 in the Eastern Cape. I have no information about her prior to her marriage to my great grandfather Samuel Harrison on 15th May 1916 at the Church of the Immaculate Conception in Port Elizabeth. Could you please organise a badge for me.

Many thanks Drea

Hi Susanna,

Hello Susanna,

Good morning Susanna, I would like to join the Cape of Good Hope project to contribute to the Du Toit family tree.

hi Susanna, i have chosen to send my request to you as I'm also from South Africa. i feel rather foolish. I'm a member of Wikitree however i haven't really used them, for no other reason that i forgot about them.

so now i would like to be active. my first question is, how do i see if I uploaded my DNA? please can you get me back on track as it all seems rather daunting. thank you in anticipation

Good Morning Susanna

I would like to join the Dutch Cape Colony project. I am living in South Africa. My links to this topic are the eastern Cape colony and the great trek and my main focus is Minie, Minnie and Mieny ancestors. I would like to connect to the main tree in Wikitree and be a contributor to this project.

Hello Susanna,

I would like to join the Dutch Cape Colony project. Living in South Africa, I have great links to this topic including my primary focus, Paulus Maree. Paulus Maree is one of many profiles that Philip has worked on and is my 8th great grandfather. I recently connected my family to the main tree by finally working out the connection between him and Isabella Susan Maree.
