This site hosts the extended Wicht & Hofmeyr family branches.
All family, no matter how distant, are invited to join the site and add their details and photos. If you have an email address for someone already on the tree, please add it under their profile as this automatically makes them a full member with the power to update and invite new members - this way the tree stays active and up-to-date. The intention is not to have huge numbers of people on the tree but rather to focus on quality and personal touches by adding plenty of detail - photos, anecdotes, biographies, photos, press articles, trivia, etc.
Also visit the family websites http://www.wicht.co.za and http://hofmeyrfamily.com (this site was down Feb 2013).
Please note there are numerous variations on the spelling of Hofmeyr, and the convention on this site is to use Hofmeijr up until around 1825 and Hofmeyr thereafter (this may have changed at different times for different branches of the family, so please bear this in mind when doing a search for your family - try both spellings).
The site was last updated on Sep 17 2014, and it currently has 198 registered member(s). If you have any comments or feedback about this site, please click here to contact me.
A special thanks to Marsheille Dirkse van Schalkwyk who added nearly 2,000 names from the Hofmeyr "blue book" to the tree.
