- My RouxWiki entry is at Roux, Nickolas Johannes (1969)
Why did I start this wiki
- I have always wanted a copy of our family coat of arms and could not believe there were non available in the public domain or under an open license.
- I just wanted to legally download a copy, it does after all belong to me already, I am a Roux, it is my family coat of arms!
- I therefor opened up Inkscape and drew one myself. Once done I decided that other Roux family members may also be in the same predicament and would also like to have a copy of it for free. So I registered the roux.co.za domain to host it.
- From there things quickly snowballed as I started receiving email requesting and offering information about the Roux family.
- Thus the wiki was born, to allow anyone interested in the Roux family to get together and contribute information on our History and Genealogy.
- I am looking for an original copy of the book Die Familie Roux by Johannes vd Bijl (ISBN 0869654640). If anyone has a copy for sale or know where I can find one, please contact me via my talk page or email.
