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]

Hi Ronel. Got your nice welcome message. There is just sooo much info to absorb so fast it is overwhelming at first. So I just dived in and began wading my way up the tree and learning as I go and finding it most often is the best way for me to understand. That is once I find where the edit button is!! I just hope I can find the How To pages when I need them. Thanks so much!

Thanks for the message, Ronel. This is a pretty awesome site.

I have a bunch of German letters and notice you have people willing to help translate. Do they do "large" projects, of more like just short phrases? I don't wish to ask for more help than is normal. Thanks!

Thanks for the welcome. I'll be slowly working through source documents gathered by my maternal grandfather and his aunt. They did a lot of research 'the hard way' back in the 1950s and 1960s.
