My birth names were Jacoba Petronella van der Schyff, but I changed my first names after immigration to Botswana.

Now that you have had a little time to try WikiTree, there are a few more features you may find useful.
Ideas on what to include in a profile can be found in Styles and Standards, including some tips on writing biographies.
If you need to describe an event, an heirloom or a location relevant to your research, you may like to learn about Free Space Profiles.
Lastly, sometimes you'll run into unresponsive profile managers. We have a process for resolving those unfortunate situations.
If you have any questions, feel free to ask via my profile page.

Welcome to the One Name Studies Project! I have awarded you the project badge. For instructions on how to get started and suggestions for getting the most out of your study, see our: One Name Study project page. We also have a FAQ page that may answer any questions you might have, or you can ask me! ;-)
I set up your category for Fröhlich Name Study which can be added to any Fröhlich profile to help organize your project. I also set up your tags and redirect.

Thanks for your note. Once you have confirmed your email address, you'll be able to fill in some tags (things your are interested in researching/working on) and volunteer.
Then you'll be on your way to add your limbs to our great big ole shared tree!

Welcome to WikiTree! The initial email from us has helpful links that will get you started on WikiTree, which is not like any genealogy site you’ve ever used.
WikiTree is different because our goal is to have one profile per person, and that means we all work together as a BIG collaborative team!
What brings you to WikiTree? Do you have research you’d like to share? Are you interested in how your family fits into the big tree? When you confirm your email address, you’ll have an opportunity to volunteer and tell us about your genealogical interests.
Once you volunteer, one of our Greeters will be happy to confirm your membership, and you’ll be on your way!
Welcome to the family! We’re really glad you’re here.
