Hi Ewald, I see you added some South African profiles to Saunderson-130. Please have a look at this help page to help you with South African profiles. There is also a page with links to sources for South African profiles. Please do not hesitate to contact me should you need help.

Hi Ewald,

This is a courtesy e-mail to see how things are going. Are you enjoying WikiTree so far?

I see that you uploaded a GEDCOM. Do you have questions about the GEDCOMpare process? The best place for help with your question would be in the G2G Forum.

Have the tips in the New Member How-Tos been helpful? Most of us still have some questions after reviewing them.

I'm here to help with issues and questions about how WikiTree works. Click my name to send me a private message or ask in the comment section of my page.

Sorry everybody, this Wikitree is harder than the other genealogical sites, I have made many mistakes learning my way around here. Sorry for acting like a bull in a chinashop! I will learn and improve, I promise, sorry for stepping on some toes, it was not intentional.

The main reason I am here: I am still searching for Peter Schmidt, (Schmidt-11229) the first Schmidt of my line to South Africa, and his son Jacobus Stephanus Schmidt (Schmidt-11228). They keep eluding me. I am exploring all possibilities that might lead to info on them.

Any help will be greatly appreciated. I have ordered Peter's War Records from the Archives in Britain. He was part of the British German Legion of 1858.

Hi Ewald

Welcome to WikiTree. I hope you will enjoy it as much as I do. Because we collaborate on the world wide South African tree we have created some rules to avoid unruly profiles, and unnecessary work. Please read the SA Project Home page to help you with first names, middle names and place names additions to profiles. Also follow the research tab on that page to help you find sources and useful information 2 make it easier for you to add sources to the profiles in your family tree. https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Project:South_Africa Do ask if anything is not clear. We are always happy to help. Warm regards R.

See for example Smit-392. You just created a similar profile Smit-4591 with 'about' in the birth and death estimates. I've seen that some of your previous data imported from FamilySearch to be etiher "off" or duplicate information. We are desperately trying to collate data in order to validate profiles.

Also - the 'Cape Province' and 'South Africa' did not come into existence until the 20th century.

Please Ewald first join a project to learn the ropes! As you created profiles beyond 1807 you enter the period of the Dutch Cape Colony project. Not only do we have certain protocols, but all profiles pertaining to that period must be in time be brought under co-management of this project. As for the 19th century, there is the SAR-project that could be very helpful. This is an urgent request to please slow down and avoid potentially creating more duplicates, which involves a lot more work for everyone.

Hello Ewald,

Thanks for taking the Pre-1700 Quiz!

Because pre-1700 ancestors are shared by many descendants, working within the projects which coordinate them is essential. You can learn more about joining the community in How To #3 and in the Project FAQ.

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

Let me know if you have trouble finding projects which fit your focus. Click my name, then ask in the comment section of my page.

Hi Ewald, a warm welcome to WikiTree! Many / most of the South African genealogical lines and profiles of the eigtheenth and seventeenth periods (and earlier) have already been made. Many have also been validated with primary sources. Many 'surnames' (we call them LastNamesAtBaptism/Birth) will not be familiar to you as often they were also patronymic, semi-patronymic of even topomymic. A good example is the the duplicate that you created of Schalck-10, who has not written entry for van der Merwe in her baptism (the van der Merwe -genealogy is being researched by me at this very moment; there are some mistakes and some conflation going on).

A few handy links to get you started:

  1. Getting Started
  2. Adding to WikiTree.
  3. What are duplicates? Why should and how can they be avoided?
  4. G2G Help - for any questions you may have ....

Perhaps you would like to join the South African Roots Project ? Besides links to sources, there help pages that are also useful.

(In Afrikaans) - in Suid-Afrika, Nederland en elders word die tussenvoegsel in vanne met klein letters gespel, tensy dit anders op die primêre rekords gespel word, byvoorbeeld van der Merwe, van der Walt, van den Berg, du Preez, de Villiers ens. Die vanne wat aangemaak word met tussenvoegsels in hoofletters (dit gebeur automaties in WikiTree) , kan jy regmaak deur dit in “edit” mode te verander in 'n van met klein tussenvoegsels (met as rede aangee dat dit die konvensie is vir Afrikaanse vanne), en dan weer te “save”.

Hi !

First welcome to WikiTree, I saw that you just joined this month! Glad to have you aboard.

The reason I am writing is that I noticed you chose our Integrators Challenge for this month. You need to be a member for at least 3 months. Because what we do is try to find G2G questions that are a couple years old etc that ask for research of a particular family or ancestor, and then we create new profiles assisting them along the way.

For more information about our project please go here, it may help in understanding our work in the monthly Integrator challenges:



Thanks, Dorothy B. Integrator project coordinator
