Like to be in the know
My paternal grandmother had a half-sister who was a Dearlove. Their bloodline now extends to at least 3 continents.
I am one of the research coordinators and co-leader of the Dutch Cape Colony Project (the main difference is I do not [de-]protect profiles but screen them before passing them on the project leader).
Progenitor blood in my veins ...
I am project member - in order to follow tags in the G2G.
Andriesz was the patronym of the progenitor of the van der Walt-family in South Africa. Geale was his first name. Like many Dutch and other European surnames the place from which a person came got administratively attached to the LNAB during migration in the 17th and 18th centuries.
Stay in the now about new stuff.
Am interested in following Leaders content and genealogist-to-genealogist (G2G) forum activity.
On both the maternal and paternal side of my family there is extensive Liebenberg blood.
My great-grandmother nine times removed was a slave from India; van Malabar is just one of the variations in spelling used.

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!

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!)
