She has held a variety of posts ranging from Student Radiographer at Frere Hospital, Paramedic, Clerical assistant at the Grahamstown Regional Library and Data Capture Typist at the Dictionary Unit for South African English at Rhodes University and has spent the last 20 odd years working for herself as a computer technician in Jeffreys Bay.

Hi again Tracey - some guidelines for entering data:

1) We don't use Mr, Mrs, Miss etc. - Normally in the South African Roots project that is left blank. 2) In the South African Roots we put all the given names in the First name field and do not use the middle name field. This applies to everyone born in South Africa. For the original settlers we use the England Project rules with only one first name in the first name field and the middle names in the middle name field. It can be confusing at first but you will get used to it. It's really great to see you making such good progress on your tree.

I have looked again at Abraham Wild's profile. It looks like only his children and grandchildren have been added so there is a bit of work to do. One thing I have found very useful is to print a descendants list. You will find the link for this if you click on the profile ID number and get a drop down menu. The descendants list is there. That will help you keep track of which line you are working on and avoid creating duplicates. Explore the different features a bit. I am still finding stuff.

Hi Tracey - I have found out about the project managing Abraham Wild. That profile was abandoned and so the project took over. I am going to try to make you the manager.

OK so it looks like your ancestor's profile is being managed by the South African Roots project but some of the descendants are orphans. I need to find out why an unfinished profile established 7 years ago is managed (or not as the case may be) by a project. In the interim I suggest you check and try to complete the direct line between you and Abraham Wild. Add info and try to get as many actual sources as possible. When you have posted a few let me know and I will help with inline referencing etc.

Start with the New Member How-To Pages - they are really useful as you add profiles and learn your way around: 

Let me know if you require assistance. I am happy to help. After adding my own family and ancestors I have found many cousins and distant ancestors here on WikiTree.
