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.

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.

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.

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.

A few handy links to get you started:
(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”.

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
