Philip is a Wiki Genealogist following these tags:
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.
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.
I am a member of a few in would like to be in the know.
I am a project coordinator for the Dutch Cape Colony project
South African roots of course
Another LNAB which many slaves (among them some of my ancestors) had, also with different variations in the toponymic spelling.

Thanks Phillip, I assumed you were a DNA boffin because you asked about dna links previously. Regards Richard

Out of interest, Maria De Wege (De_Wege-2) profile lists 3 GedMatch ref's for possible links. not sure what segment size thresholds I should set for 7 generations distant, but set to "minimum segment size = 2", for the 3 people listed I get 10 shared segments total 27.6 cM, 7 shared segments total 17.4 cM, and 9 shared segments total 28.5 cM. - Regards Richard

Hi Phillip, I rechecked dna link to Retief-4 with tighter parameters, and YES, I have 2 shared segments, total 6.8 cM. Advice on a different subject please. I posted a message for Susan De Bruyn (Coetsee-48) noted as COGH communications etc, but have not had a response re who I should contact. COGH profiles Pitzer-137 and De Wege-2 show 3 children Pitzer-262, Pitzer-217, Pitzer-261. I believe I have a record for a 4th, Rosa Catharina Pitzer, (my direct ancestor 6 generations) baptised 14 Aug 1763 Cpt, but do not want to mess about with project protected profiles as a novice & non project member. Any idea who has specific interest in these profiles that I can talk to?

Regards Richard

Hi Phillip, I checked possible GedMatch noted on Retief-4, but no match found. Retief-174 is allegedly a direct relation 7 generations, so their siblings children would be quite seriously diluted I guess. I have not yet concentrated on Stevens research - my sons maternal side, but I have his DNA test as well which may help, but am not aware of any 1820's link, I will check, thanks.

Regards Richard

Hi Philip, indeed Peens-4 appears to be Peens-3's niece. Am I correct?

Thanks for the note. I did catch the Nigel. Can we get them to stop that as an error? Can you explain the Zuid/Suid difference. I googled it and it means South Africa, why are we being asked to change it to Suid? Wish I knew about that page before I started!! Thanks Terry

Hi Philip, do you have knowledge of the Perron or Butters or Stallwood clan, or are you just helping to tidy things up?
