Hi Andre,

I have started looking at the South Africa Project. I live near Perth in Western Australia, I am curious where you migrated to, Cheers, Steve Thomas.

posted by Steve Thomas
Hi Steve, I migrated to Adelaide in 1982.
posted by André Laubscher
Thanks. My South Australian family has significant ancestry from the early Lutherans that emigrated from Prussia. In Wikitree, I am a Project Coordinator for the Germany Project.

Regarding South Africa, I worked for 3 months near Johannesburg before you migrated. My brother still lives north of Adelaide and last year supported a farmer and his family to come to South Australia from near Mossel Bay, Western Cape Province.

Hi André, I will make sure I reed the rules, I have already been looking at some names that match my research and have been able to add new details and family members. I have family connections to the Netherlands and many links to VOC. My first family link was Thomas Le Breton who settled in Cape Town after his military service (88 Long Street was his last address and his profession was brewer). Another name of interest is Matthew Adams, he arrived in 1820 and was a clock maker (he installed the clock in the original St George church in Cape Town). Other names of interest: Botha, Venter, Van Der Ploy to name a few.

Good Day Andre, I wish to join the Dutch Cape Colony project. I moved to Langebaan, Western Cape from the UK and have been building my family tree for quite a few years and have now found several connections the the Early Dutch and English settlers to the Cape.
posted by Jan North
Hello Jan. We would be very happy for you to join the project. I do however ask that you read through the project web page first and take particular note of the requirements listed under "Important for Cape of Good Hope profiles". Please also note that a large proportion of profiles for the period (1652 - 1806) already exist, so please do a thorough search before adding new profiles (we have a constant battle with merging duplicates). Also, do you have any family lines of special interest that I can note against your name ?

Hi André, in my text awarding you the green generous genealogist badge I wrote: "André more than deserves this badge. As research coordinator he takes care that the profiles in the Dutch Cape Colony project and the adjacent Progenitor project are well integrated and sourced. I trust him completely - he works diligently, neatly and above all - accurately. You are an asset André; many thanks for your quiet and unassuming role within this project and on WikiTree!" - not assuming. Apologies for the mistake.

Thank you Philip, I appreciate that very much. I have learned a great deal from you and no doubt will continue to learn more in the future.

Johannes, on the COGH (and PROG) profiles we do not apply the stickers added to the Dutch Roots Project. I removed

Thank you very much for your input and help regarding  Kotze-313

I will look into this. hopefully today :-P  Warm regards R

Hi Johannes, please do not change the data of others in the biographies. This is tampering with information. For example here, on Loúbser-246 you removed : Place: [Cape Town] <ref name=ESME/> and added instead place: Cape Town, Cape of Good Hope <ref name=ESME/><ref name=BAP/> Which is untrue. The square bracketts indicate that Cape Town was called some thing different then. By removing it you are falsifying history (I know - not on purpose). And then you add the current day repository of the actual baptism as the place of baptism. Which might not have been Cape Town at all but for example Stellenbosch. Please just add information. Do as little editing and removal as possible. Always first go the the link provided and see what is there.

You'll have to re-add the marriage info. Thanks for that.

Johannes, I corrected your editing of the bio of Laubser-8. Please keep to the protocol of this project. We do not divorce sources from input. We add names. This in order to collate and validate in orderly fashion.

nie. Die rede is eenvoudig. Sy het getrou / het kinders gehad met 'n stamvader Wilken-29. Dit maak haar stammoeder.

Daar is nog 'n rede. Ons het gekies om onderskeid te maak tussen Stamouers en gewone Kaap geborenes in die periode 1652-1806. Dit is naamlik baie lastiger om Stamouers te valideer (die spelling van die vanne deur middel van primêre rekords soos doop rekords) as hulle kinders - die VOC en die mense in die Kaap het baie goeie rekords gehou.

'n Voorbeeld is van my eie stamvader Andriesz-6 wat 'n patroniem gehad het. Die van der Walt was 'n verkapte toponiem. Sien hierdie afbeelding.
