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


  • Sensus 1670
  • Sensus 1700

What to do

When you know about a progenitor or come accross one in the tree that could be one of the first 100. Link them here. Also make sure they find their place on the "SV/PROG Mapping the first arrivals to Cape of Good Hope" base project.
