Hello, Richard -- I would also invite you to participate in our informal "Indonesia Project" -- it doesn't really have any official status at this point and I'm not sure it would count for Pre-1500 certification, but with your family connections it might have a great interest to you!

Hello, Richard

One of the requirements of Pre-1500 certification is participation in a project. You may want to take a look at our German Roots Project.
