Categorisation/Kategorieë

Om ons familie lede makliker te vind tussen die groot hoveelheid profiele in die Suid Afrikaanse Projek maak ons gebruik van Kategorieë wat op streke en plek name gebaseer is
In order to organize profiles and to make it easier to find groups of people in the vast South African Project we use Categories based on regional and place names
