Hello My name is Samantha and I was wondering if anyone in South Africa- or might know someone there, could help me. I was told by my father that my grandfather ( his father) was The South African Ambassador- His name was WILLEM DIRKSE-VAN-SCHALKWYK- and i can find no proof of this. I would ask my father but, he died 10 years ago and didn't like to talk to my mom about his history, So I was wondering if someone could possibly be able to help me. And any history on the DIRKSE-VAN-SCHALKWYK family ( also spelled DIRKSE-VAN-SCHALKWIJK) would be very helpful.
Thanks you.

I was born and raised in South Africa. My maiden name was van Schalkwijk, and according to my parents, my Grandfather or great-Grandfather changed his original surname "Dirkse van Schalkwyk" to "van Schalkwijk".

I would be really interested in what you were able to dig up regarding the Dirkse van Schalkwyk Family History.
