Regarding Judith Anne (du Plessis de Mornay) I have been , despite extensive research, unable to find her name connected to any of the du Mornay genealogical sites, such as Racineshistoire..She is certainly Not the daughter, of Philippe de Mornay, & his wife Charlotte Arbaleste..I have traced back earlier lines, & found nothing leading to this name either...Where did her name originate from?...If there was indeed a Judith Anne de Mornay, who definately existed, then the only conclusion I can reach, is that she was a descendant of Martin de Mornay de la Tour de Mornay, who was the illegitimate son of Pierre "le Jeune" de Mornay (died 1423), who was the son of Pierre de Mornay (died 1404) & Jeanne de Vendome....I have already found incorrect ancestry on the du Plessis line, as the line leading to Francois du Plessis & Francoise de Charge, was a different Francois du Plessis...An earlier line from the eldest son, Pierre du Plessis (not Sauvage) of Guillaume du Plessis & Charlotte de la Celle,..I have already posted information regarding this..It makes me wonder now about Jean du Plessis..He obviously existed, but were there records to show that he was indeed the son of Francois II du Plessis (1510-1560) & Francoise de Charge?
Private User. perhaps it will help if I start up a DuPlessis Project page where you can collaborate on your research on the duPlessis family line with other managers of this family name's profiles. For eg, Private User and I were chatting about this profile last week - and she is also researching her. We spoke about my finding of this first hand account http://www.archive.org/stream/huguenotfamilyin00mornuoft/huguenotfa... Judith's mother (and my 11th gggrandmother!) of their experiences as a Huguenot family in the 16th Century, and were going to try and find out more details from this. (It's long - so the more of us trying to glean info from it the better :-)
Remember to make sure you've messaged other managers on the profiles before you make significant changes.
Okay, I see Private User, has already created one: http://www.geni.com/projects/du-Plessis-family-of-South- She just hadn't got around to linking it to the http://www.geni.com/projects/South-Africans-Geni-Landing-Site-WELKO... page. I'll add you as a collaborator Danielle (that should mean you can add all the profiles you want queried to the page too), and put up this question as a query on that page.
Also, have you joined our Geni SA FaceBook page?http://www.facebook.com/groups/243811932355680/ There's a du Plessis discussion going on there too. I'll add this one - Sometimes it's easier for people to access questions there.
I've re-posted this discussion as one connected to the du Plessis Project Discussions: http://www.geni.com/discussions/106997 as well.
Danielle - can you post the link to the Francois du Plessis Discussion you say you started there too? I can't find it.
