Is it in order to add Johanna Margaretha (van Deventer) Debes (1702-abt.1757) as mother of Gerrit Snyman (bef.1730-)? The name of his mother on the baptism record is Anna Margaretha van Deventer.

I have asked the name to be merged into the correct spelling and then protected with that spelling, connected to the mother as well.
