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]

Even if that can be done selectively for/per Profile manager.

Your consideration for this request will be appreciated.

Best regards Jo

Hi Ronel,

Regarding to your message: "According to the new rules when a template is on a profile the project must also be co-manager. Should you need this profile to be under the custodianship of the project please add the project as co-manager. The edit bod will be removing template in the near future if the project is not added." I have no problem with this, however what about the hundreds or even thousands of profiles in the past that will then be undone? I do not think it is unreasonable to request that such a conversion should be done programmatically, else all my effort done to capture that will be wasted. It can in any case be tested that the profile falls within the parameters required to be a South African Roots object. see following message...

Hi Ronel, I have taken all my profiles from the unsourced list. I'm going to go through my other profiles to source where necessary. Is that OK.? Do we accept gedcoms generated profiles as sourced?

I have church work this weekend so wont be able to spend much time on sourcing. Will try my best. Be strong! Blessings.

Dankie vir al jou onbaatsugtige help!
