    She is listed in Wikipedia and other sites as “Cape Coloured”.

    Her father has a sort of “white-passing” look to me: https://www.tyi.co.za/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/95896926.jpg

    I was finally able to trace her maternal ancestry, but not yet her paternal ancestry.

    Demi-Leigh’s maternal grandfather was Willem Andries Nel (the son of Willem Andries Nel and Andrea Stefina Viljoen). Demi-Leigh’s grandfather Willem was born in Orange Free State (now Free State). Demi-Leigh’s great-grandfather Willem was the son of Willem Andries Nel, who was killed during the Second Boer War, and of Anna Helena Louisa Potgieter.

    Demi-Leigh’s maternal grandmother was Beatrice Mulder (the daughter of Jacobus Munro Mulder and Alberta Maria Streso). Beatrice was born in Cape Province. Alberta was the daughter of Pieter Anthonie Streso and Petronella Gertruida Neveling. Pieter’s paternal great-great-grandfather, Andriy Strezov (later Andreas Stresau/Stresow), was a Ukrainian soldier, from Berlyn, Lviv Oblast.

    Here’s her ethnicity so far: Afrikaner [Dutch (including Frisian), French, German, small amount of Belgian (Flemish)], 1/256 Ukrainian, as well as remote African, Chinese, English, Indian, Indonesian (including Sumbawa), Malagasy, Norwegian
