“Genealogy without sources is mythology” I therefore endeavor to add at least one source to as many of the members of the tree as possible.

I got bitten by the genealogy bug in 1999 when my mother told me she’s the only person left in South Africa with the surname Urbasch. Finding other people with the surname Urbasch was quite easy but putting the tree together will probably be something I may not be able to complete in my lifetime. Whose tree is ever complete?

Maternal Grandfather Urbasch My initial research can be found in SAG v13 T-U. There are some mistakes though! I will submit my latest research, with sources, when the U’s are due for an update. Hopefully I can break through the brick walls before then.

Urbasch Brick walls:

My grandfather: Vaughan Daniel Urbasch – Only oral sources and no source at all for his death.

My second great grandfather: Carl Heinrich Urbasch – The line stops here as I can’t find any records for him in Prussia.

Maternal Grandmother

My grandmother: Marian Mclean Verster

I assumed my paternal line will be all smooth sailing because the Labuschagne family’s quite well documented and researched. Well I learned a huge lesson here, never assume! I think we must have been the black sheep of the family because nobody’s recorded our branch of the family.

Paternal Grandfather

Labuschagne Brick wall: Frans Engelbertus Labuschagne – I found his gravestone so I’m sure of this birth and death dates. His parents however are just well calculated guess work at this point.

Paternal Grandmother

Annandale Maria Petronella Annandale, b8c10 once I found her correct names and birth date it was quite easy to tie her into the Annandale family tree.

Thanks Charmaine for taking the Pre-1700 Quiz!

Because pre-1700 ancestors are shared by many descendants, working within the projects which coordinate them is essential.

Use the Pre-1700 Projects list to find one which best fits your research focus, whether time period, location, or topic. Read the goals and tasks of the project and join if it is a good fit.

Add the project tag to your Following list to be kept up to date on any activity that occurs for that project.

Can't find what you're looking for? Let me know, and I can make some suggestions! :-)

On NAAIRS there is no tolerance for spellimg variants. It may be useful to check "Urbach" there (6 documents).

Hi Charmaine,

You have been an active member of WikiTree for about a month now so I thought I would check in to see how it is going. You might be interested in some of the tips and tricks that we have included in the How-Tos that we share with new members these days. They were created long after you became a member so you never received them.

If you have WikiTree questions, I am here to help. Just click my name, then ask in the comment section of my page. I'll get back to you by the end of the day.

PS If the link does not work, you can find it in the public comment I left on your profile.
