Hartlike welkom!

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. Please note, I do NOT manage the site nor administer your branch of the family- you do. 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 Feb 23 2017, and it currently has 208 registered member(s).


A special thanks to Marsheille Dirkse van Schalkwyk who added nearly 2,000 names from the Hofmeyr "blue book" to the tree. 


Yours familially
