You go gal. The Great Trek was my favourite History topic in primary school. We had a wonderful teacher who made us an ossewa that opened up; and I seem to recall us naming all the oxen - something like Rudolf's reindeers.
However when it took over the entire history syllabus for the next 8 years, there was a saturation factor -that crept in - so I'll jump in later on!
Ohh fantastic Chris Steyn - Please upload the relevant data onto the project when you get a chance.
Also add it as a recommended resource on the project.
Peter Dennis...Gone fishing! - which profile is it? I'm not so much understanding what has upset you. If you've done some hard work on the profile issues, surely everyone will be delighted if you start the edit work on the About Me?
HI Peter. I agree with Sharon. It happens jong. I also added one as I go along but don't necessary change the sources etc, immediately. Onverskoonbaar, I know. We all somtimes get the feeling - "sommmer my lus verloor vir geni." I also have that, and Shelvin here I must add to you, those dear lovked profiles. Somtimes completely in the wrong place but you can't do anything. No help from sending messages either.
I added information from "Voortrekker Stamouers" to profiles on my tree before the project was launched. Sharon Lee Doubell do you think we could add an icon like a little Ossewa wielietjie or something to indicate which of our stamouers were involved in the Trek, or am I being over ambitious??
Magrieta Magdalena Maria Britz that's an idea - I like visual stuff, but I don't know how to do that without changing the whole profile pic - Although it is possible to do. However, I think maybe we'd be covering the profiles in too many 'badges' as many of them belong to more than one project.
I have created an icon for the profiles I have added to the project. There is also an icon for the Voortrekkerstammoeders that June created. If you want to use it you are welcome. I am just not quite sure how to set it up for use. Here is a link to a profile with the icon.
