All the SA/PROG's look more or less the same - think it will be great if we can have them a bit more individual-like :-)

Hope nobody mind me being so forward as to create a new one for my very own PROG and adding it.

If a problem - sorry :-)

Just remember - we are family and you have love FAMILY (including me)

Tevrede. But that is more the family crest is it not. But I have it on my Marais although I would love to have the SA one as that are the French one.♪♪♪♪

Wat is fout met die familiewapen soos gepubliseer in C.Pama-Die Groot Afrikaanse Familienaamboek?
"Hiedie wapen het in 1946 in gebruik gekom en is is 'n variant van die wapen van die Neederlandse familie Potgieter" bl255.
He is not your very own but ours ( my 8th g grandfather.).
It is the one depicted above in the smart matches by Michael on the van Zyl website.

My eighth great grandfather too. What about us agreeing to use the the one mentioned in Pama? If you click on the media tab on his profile page, you will see that I have uploaded the Pama family crest for Potgieter.
Greetings
Chris

Also looks good, Chris. This is my 9th ggrandpa.

My 8ste Oupagroot, my keuse is ook die een gepubliseer in Die Groot Afrikaanse Familienaamboek

Ek stel voor dat jy so spoedig moontlik regmaak wat jy verbrou het. Soos ek reeds gesê het jy kan nie die geskiedenis verander omdat dit vir jou mooier lyk nie.

7/13/2013 at 6:35 AM

Magda, Willa het 'n ekstra moeite wat ook kunstig mooi is bygevoeg. Sy het nie die geskiedenis verander nie, en hoe meer mense wat belangstel om in te voeg om ons profiele, hoe beter vir ons almal.
Sy het genoeg belangstel om dit te doen, en was mooi genoeg om ons almal te vertel - Laat ons nou as neefs en niggies met haar praat .

(Jammer, ek weet dat my vertaling nie goed geoeg is nie :-( )

Ook my 8 x oupagrootjie!

Ek hou nogal van Willa se ontwerp.

Peter Dennis haal aan uit Pama:

"Hiedie wapen het in 1946 in gebruik gekom en is is 'n variant van die wapen van die Neederlandse familie Potgieter" bl 255.

- Ek dog ons man was van Nordhorn, Laer Saksonie, Duitsland en nie Nederland nie? Het ons SA Potgieters ooit enigiets met die Nederlandse Potgieters te doen?

- Verder klink 1946 maar baie onlangs.

How do I merge this with my tree?? He is my 7th X ggrandfather linking in with Matthys Johannes Weeber

7/14/2013 at 7:58 AM

The fact that you can see your relationship with him means that he is linked to your tree.
I do not understand what you mean my merging with your tree?

Harmen Jansen Potgieter, SV/PROG
→ Jan Harmensz Potgieter, b1
his son → Elisabeth Potgieter, b1c2
his daughter → Frederik de Jager, b1c8
her son → Matthys Gottlieb de Jager
his son → Johanna Catharina Magdalena de Jager
his daughter → Matthys Johannes Weeber
her son → Olga Butler
his daughter → M. Lineker
her daughter → P. Blacklaws

Hi, You 7th and 8th cousins,
What is the fight about. He was my sixth great grandfather and as the only remaining great grand child with the nearest connection to him and still sound of mind I should have the main say in any thing regarding him.

So stop the fighting and get back to the merge issues
Dries Potgieter.

7/15/2013 at 1:27 AM

Thanks Peter. Patricia he's correct- your tree is already linked to his.

Hello Dries, I see we are 6th cousins. I hope nobody's fighting. I'd say 6th ggrandpa trumps us all :-)

oh wow, I started a war when I just wanted to make the profiles look more individual like.

I am sorry if I offended with my creative-mind - I just find it boring and also sometimes hard to distinguish the profiles as they all look the same with no image (or all the same image) and some text ....

I don't think of of us are more important than the other, no matter what distance we are from the PROG.

Herman Janz Potgieter happens to be my 8th great father, Potgieter all the way up to the top. That is why I started at his profile - many of the PROG's is my 5/6/7 great parent, but not all of them are Potgieter's and I had to start at a point.

I notice the image is removed.

What I meant with : "Hope nobody mind me being so forward as to create a new one for my very own PROG and adding it"

was not that I created a new family-crest ...
it should have read a new image for my very own PROG and adding it ... and of course he is all your PROG too - I did not mean his just mine. One has to be careful in the choice of words, specially when the other person can not see you.

So I am sorry for upsetting you guys ... was never the intention.

C.Pama-Die Groot Afrikaanse Familienaamboek crest is fine - but it will be boring too if it is everybody's profile photo that does not have a photo ...

It is very expensive to register a family crest and a very few families truly have a crest.

Again - sorry if I stepped on toes and hurt feelings - was not my intention.

love you all -
your crazy cousin
Willa

Okay - perhaps the "crest-like" image might create confusion or give the impression that that is the crest for the person.

So I tried something new ... just to give the profile a different look than all the rest.

I will in time do so for all the profiles I link to (If you link to one I don't link to and you want something, I will gladly help) that is without a photo - just to add color and also to make it more individual like

can we live with this ...

let me know

the creative-crazy cousin of you all
lots of Cape TOwn love
Willa

7/15/2013 at 8:14 AM

There is also a new one for Beeldjie ... Isabella (Beeletjie) Fredericksz, SM/PROG

if cool - create - if not - let see how and what will make everybody happy

some of us are happy with just the text, but some of us love color :-)

7/15/2013 at 8:15 AM

If cool great - not create - I am blessed with dyslexia and sleep depravation :-)

7/15/2013 at 8:51 AM

Thanks ~ I didn't realise that it was already linked! I wasn't fighting! LOL Bye to all the cousins

7/15/2013 at 11:56 PM

Why this is seen as a "fight" is beyond me. Surely we are allowed to express our differing opinions.
Not all of us are comfortable with changes to our environment even semi public spaces such as this are scary places.
I am sure Willa especially will now understand .

7/16/2013 at 4:36 AM

Sorry for using the word "fight" I should have used the Afrikaans term " Bek geveg" Wiila, ek weet jy het dit goed bedoel maar ek het geleer moenie krap waar dit nie jeuk nie. I think in English they have a saying "Let well enough be"

7/17/2013 at 2:00 PM

ag ons is familie en lief vir mekaar - sorry vir die bek-ge-veg wat ek veroorsaak het - darem is ons almal nog heel .. Change is good Peter :-)

Ek moet se, ek voel trots om familie te wees en ek is veral trots op my Potgeiter-erfernis. Ek voel erg bevoorreg.

Ek is so af en toe op skype en het al die voorreg gehad om met Dries te praat ... die van julle wat dit gebruik, ek sal van volgende week op die oggende meer gereeld in skype wees ... darem makliker om face to face te praat as per swart letters op die skerm.

my skype handel is : willapoet

lets well enough be and be great together :-)

ns - as ek droog maak - ek is ook maar nog nuut tot hierdie veld van Genealogie ... ek het baie om te leer. Peter Dennis help my baie mooi reg en ek waardeer dit ... ek mag 'n koppigheid in my he, maar ek is oop vir leer en beter doen more ;-)

nag nigs en neefs :-)

Willa ek hou ook nie van gesiglose profiele nie. Ek probeer die grafstene kry of iets wat aan die persoon gekoppel is. Ek stem saam ek sien geen "bekgevegte" nie. LOL.

7/21/2013 at 2:38 PM

Ja - ek soek ook altyd eers na die grafte se foto's as ek nie die gesig foto kan kry nie :-) Maar ek merk dat baie van die PROG's is of gesigloos of min of meer dieselfde foto ... ai ...
