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

Het probleem ondervind in die week. Iemand het my na 'n dame toe verwys. Ek vind mense wat wil boeke skryf deel nie graag inligting nie maar neem graag dit was die rede hoekom ek dit verander het. Ek het dit baie onregverdig gevind.

Meeste van my inligting het ek persoonlik bekom maar daar is leemtes. Ek het dit ook verkeerd verstaan ek het gedink julle sal dit nog kan sien.

Waardeer hulp verskriklik baie dankie. Laat my weet as ek foute maak.

Hi Ronel, I have 2 separate cases of adoption. I'm not sure how sensitive these are, and If they are, how they should be handled.

1. Meyer-9679 and husband adopted Meyer's sister's daughter. Meyer-de Waal marriage was 1923. No date yet for birth or adoption. 2. de Waal-983 + wife van Zyl adopted 2 children but there is no info of them yet except their names which i have not added. De Waal-983 died in 1931. Could you give me some advice please? Thank you Wendy
