Esmé, would you or one of the other South African Roots Project members be willing to welcome Izak van Heerden in Afrikaans. He has been a member of WikiTree for a couple of weeks. His tag comment and the profiles he has added all have "Cradock" as the location. A Google search indicates that is in South Africa. Thanks, Debi

Thank you for posting William Gleeson's 25/2/1838 marriage. I did also find the information on but had not taken the time to add it to Wikitree.

Hi - noticed you changed the death date of Taliaferro-71 to 1 Feb 1727 with the comment " as per source". If you read the biography, there are two primary sources for his death, one that says he was deceased in 1711 and another that mentions his wife as his administratrix in 1688. Most likely, you are using one of the various old secondary sources, but obviously when a secondary source conflicts two primary sources, it has to be discarded.
