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 - a question of clarity on the Source-a-Thon --- does the SA springboks get points only for SA project profiles sourced, for South African profiles out of projects or any profile sourced by a springboks team member. Just wondering - I will be joining.

Welkom by die jaarlikse Help:Connect-a-Thon

Al die nuwe profiele wat jy maak hierdie naweek word getel. Die doel is om 'n profiel te gebruik wat nie gekoppel is aan WikiTree se hoofboom nie en dan al daardie familie by te sit wat jy kan opspoor. Die kompetisie begin om 14H00 vandag (Vrydag) Voorspoed en geniet dit

Welcome to the annual Help: Connect-a-Thon All the new profiles you make this weekend are being counted. The goal is to use a profile that is not linked to WikiTree's main tree and then add all that family you can find. The competition starts at 14H00 today (Friday) Good Luck and enjoy.

Hi Ronel - this has come up as an error -- do I remove the project box, or should it be given the project as a manager?

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?
