South African Stamouers/Progenitors - Mapping the first arrivals to Cape of Good Hope

We are able to now start gathering data to get an accurate view about who would have been at the Cape at a certain date. These projects are intended to allow us in time to accurately count the "Progenitor" population at these particular years.

Four sensus projects are intended -

  • The first 100 (to arrive)
  • The first 1000 (to arrive)
  • Sensus 1650
  • Sensus 1660

Future:

  • Sensus 1670
  • Sensus 1700

Sensus 1650 is to link all profiles thought to be LIVING at the Cape on 1 January 1650

So from SV/PROG to last living relative.... Link them here.

The idea is to get a list of people alive on this date if a sensus would have been done.

In particular those linked to this project would have likely been at the Cape when Jan van Riebeeck arrived.
