Wellington, Western Cape South Africa
Living in the beautiful town of Wellington, Western Cape, South Africa since 1981. [1]
I was born and bred in the Eastern Cape and had the privilege to attend 12 different schools. Getting to know different people and making lots of friends, with whom I still have the privilege to have contact after all these years.
In 1972 life's road brought me to the Western Cape, and I was surrounded with so much beauty that I fell in love and stayed. [1]
In 1987 due to my interest in genealogy, and little knowledge of genetics I became involved in an American based project that opened many doors for me. Leading to research about South African families far beyond my own interest - the Olivier family name. [1]
My involvement with many different research projects took me to new avenues. I met many wonderful people and their friendship and help are a huge benefit, in reaching my goals:
My goals are to help build a global tree with as many South African profiles as possible. Giving each and every profile a place in the sun, to commemorate their joy and sorrows. [1]
Adding as many private sources to WikiTree as possible for future generations[1]
WikiTree opened so many doors leading to so many opportunities that I am confident that this goal will not be as difficult as I anticipated. The collaboration, and help gives me hope that I will see this goal realised sooner than later. [1]

Thank you for greeting me and being a mentor. The South African connection is interesting as my Great Grandfather fought in the Anglo Boer War, (he served in the Grenadier Guards and then held the rank of Captain).

Thank you for the welcome Ronel. I look forward to working with you in the future. I would like to say that at present we are down sizing and moving to a retirement complex. This is a very big job as we have a lot of things to sell etc and general tidying up to do, so my time is somewhat limited at the moment. I hope that everybody will under stand if I don't reply immediately. I hope this situation will improve later this year. However I will monitor this site and answer as soon as possible.

Thank you for the nice welcome. I'm still reading all the information and "rules". I need to work on my gedcom a little before I can split it and upload it. I've been using Legacy as a backup to Ancestry and found some potential errors I want to correct prior to uploading.  :)

I am focused on researching my ancestors who emigrated from Ireland during the potato famine and later 1800's. They settled in Oswego and Rensselaer counties of New York, Bennington, VT, coal country near Pittsburgh, PA, and later to the Denver and Gunnison CO areas. Is anyone else doing similar research?

Good Day Ronel, Hoping I did good on the How to Start Climbing Our Tree?!!! Thank you Barbara BBRAAG

Hi Ronel. Thank you for noticing the error - I don't quite know what happened and how it got to the suffix. Both error reports have been fixed.

Regarding my father's profile, it would appear I'm not a trusted member of his profile yet, therefore cannot be added :(

Hi, thank you very much for your welcome email Ronel - im slowly working my way around here. I did upload my gedcom but im aware there's a bit of tidying up to before I attempt to offer it up to the big tree! I thought perhaps it would be better to prune it back a little and do just a pedigree tree? Any thoughts tips or advice much appreciated. Apologies in advance for any mistakes im bound to make, I confess that I am an amateur genealogist but very much hope I can be of use to wikitree community!

Thanks Ronel for pointing out the errors caused by the two Nathaniel Glovers (4246 and 4247) - father and son with same name. I think I have cleaned it up but since I am new to Wikitree I would appreciate any further help or corrections you suggest.

Also your comment about the supposed connection to Lord Charles Somerset's makes sense to me and I am glad you have added the note. The rumor I cited is family lore from a branch of the Lomberg family and probably apochryphal - but I dare not say so publicly! Charlotte Rosa Lomberg was my mother's aunt and I too grrew up in the Cape - California now
