Every now and then someone writes in via the ‘Contact Us’ facility to point out errors and/or to contribute new information about the family. We all benefit from this – errors are caught and corrected and the information on our website becomes richer and more authoritative.
Sometimes the errors might seem minor – for example James Ashford BATTY instead of what we had, James Allison BATTY – but it is important to get it right. Unfortunately I cannot correct the published Morkel Genealogies going back to De Villiers/Pama where the error came from, but we can do it on the website.
As I describe in our next Blog, we got our Hercules link for the Beaufort West MORKELs wrong. Thank to a generous contributor, we now have entries in registers for baptism and marriage of Gert Thomas MORKEL which need quite far reaching changes.
Thanks so much. I am cautious about mentioning names without permission and have thanked the contributors directly. I shall make the changes.
