Communication Preferences: I am interested in communicating private message with anyone who shares the same genealogical or historical interests. My family tree is here on WikiTree but it's private.
As much as I would like it, I don’t have time to assist people with their personal research or how-to guidance – particularly when the query bears no relation to the period in which I work. In such instances, even if I at one time researched the period or location of your interest, I haven’t done so for a long time, and so would have to do some research to refresh my own knowledge before helping you. There are many groups populated with experts who can and will help you, just search on your topic of interest. I am open to communication within the project[s] that I'm working on, and to issues relating to shared personal genealogies (I'm related as most South Africans from european descent are, to the same ancestors). On not responding to emails - I'm pressed for time & priority.

Hi Phillip, in antwoord op jou vraag op my blad.

Ek het die profiel Van_der_Walt-2598 geskep omrede sy getroud was met ñ Gert Abraham Coetsee en ek was onder die indruk dat sy die eggenote was van Coetsee-787. Ek het toe later agter gekom dat sy met ñ ander Gert Abraham Coetsee getroud was omrede hulle nie dieselfde kinders gehad het nie, daarom het ek die twee geskei. Hoop dit is duidelik genoeg omskryf. Groete Peet

Last month, I visited the French speaking Walloon church where my Wife’s ancestors were members in the 1600s. They were Huguenots.

Inside the sanctuary of the church, there were many burial plots with markers engraved in the floor. I took several photos. I was wondering if some of these people could be ancestors of Wikitreers.

Any suggestions of where I might post these pictures of the church and markers on Wikitree so people might access them?

My apologies, Philip. I am currently participating in the Source-a-Thon, but I had added the profile in question to my bookmarks so that I could return to it after the Thon is over. Thank you for your diligence!

Regards, Amy Utting

You posted it as a comment, not an answer, so I cannot "thank you" thank you, so here is my "thank you" for actually seeing my point and acknowledging its validity. (Clarity is everything, so if this isn't clear, let me know!)
