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]

Hallo Ronel, ek is nie seker van wat jy versoek op profiel van Abraham Hendrik Matthee (Matthee-209) nie. Praat jy van Hendrina Glaudina of eintlik van sy ouma Roodman/Botma, en in die bios verandering?
