There are irregularities in the publications of South African Genealogies/Suid-Afrikaanse Geslagregisters which are being addressed by the GISA team and which will be included in future publications. A-K is already available, and no doubt new revisions will be made as new irregularities are found!

To participate in any project


- you do need to first be a collaborator - so join the project. Visit Geni Wikitext, Unicode and images which gives a great deal of assistance. Also see the discussion Project Help: How to add Text to a Project - Starter Kit to get you going!

How to add a link is explained in the attached document - Adding links to Geni profiles in projects.

It will be necessary to personally advise GISA of any discrepancies you find - this project is purely for the benefit of Geni users. Contact GISA - info@gisa.org.za - with your corrections.

However - before you do this please check their Errata List to make sure that the error hasn't already been reported.

For those who use the older publications it would be good to list here any irregularities that have been found, supplying sources and references that support the corrections. This is not the place to list minor errors in dates, spelling, place names etc. - these need to be made in the "About" field on the profile. In these cases if necessary a curator can be requested to add a "Curator Note" to the profile drawing attention to the error or discrepancy.

Curators working on the South African tree are -

Please note sources, reasons, references etc. MUST support any claims of this nature that you make.

Please add the name of the Progenitor/Stamvader to the following list with a brief description of the basic error, in alphabetical order by last name, slotting them into the list already in place, and then load a document to the project which supports the findings. Please add the profile to the project. List individual descendants of the Prog/SV in the summary to draw attention to them, using the numbering system assigned in the SAG volume, whether it is right or not. Add the Volume and page name.

If there are errors which users need to be made aware of, but which are not yet fully documented, please add the SV/PROG to the list with a note to that effect, alerting others who may be interested. Please also add your name and profile address so that people can contact you. Alternatively start a discussion as in [1] below. If you do not know how to do this please contact one of the Curators who will happily help!

[1] If you wish to open a discussion on some names please use the discussion tab (top right of this screen) and give the name of the Prog/SV as a heading to the discussion.

Bastiaans

Recent discussions between some descendants of François Bastiaans prompted a thorough examination of the information available. This has resulted in the interpretation of the information in existing documents shown in the attached document. The table follows the information as presented by Richard Ball - http://www.ballfamilyrecords.co.uk/robberts/I041.html very closely, and his interpretation has greatly influenced this report. We are also indebted to the information presented in the eGGSA Record transcripts, the Inventories of the Orphan Chamber and The First Fifty Years Project.

Blomerus x Eybers

This concerns: Susanna Maria Elizabeth Eybers There were two Arie Erasmus Blomerus cousins living roughly the same time. According to family written documentation, b2c6d2 (22.8.1848) married Eybers. GISA mentions the wrong AE Blomerus (c. 1838) when referring to the marriage with the above Eybers. This has been taken up with A Heese personally, but not with GISA directly.

Coetzee x Roets

Elizabeth Catharina Roets is shown married to Dirk Coetzee (a1b7c8d4) and Dirk Coetzee (a1b7c8d4) in SAF vol 7 during the same period, The latter is probably the correct version. Geni adapted and GISA notified

Couvret

Paul Couvret SV/PROG had four children (he left the Cape in 1712 with 4 children SAF v7) Only two are listed in SAF v7 but 3 at http://www.e-family.co.za/ffy/g11/p11230.htm The 4th may come to light as that project progresses

Diemer

SAF v8 page 326

Abraham Diemer b6 - there is a 7th child not mentioned in this table - Elizabeth Diemer b6c5 who was baptised October 18, 1705. Not mentioned on MOOC8/3.31 so deceased before 18 July 1713.

Eksteen

Firstly

The error involving Heinrich-Oswald-Eksteen-SV-PROG

He had a child before his first marriage - Hendrik Eksteen who has been numbered b1.

The name of Heinrich Ostwald Eksteen's second wife is mistakenly added in the G.R no 107 and 11, p 60 as mentioned to be his sons wife. The wife being Everdina Cruywagen.

He had 5 children with his 1st wife.

The research to correct this has been done and will be forwarded to GISA. See the document added to this project outlining the research done. Acknowledgements - Lea Herbst.

The de Villiers numbers on Geni reflect these findings.

Secondly

There has been a duplication of information in South African Families (SAF) Volume 9, 2012 in connection with b12c5d4e6 Jacobus Adriaan Bapt. 13.11.1814 and b12c5d4e12 Jacobus Adriaan Born 29.1 2.1826. Information connected to e12 has been listed under e4 as detailed below.

The revised list follows the original lists in the attached Document

Esterhuizen x Jansen

The error involving Jan Christoffel Esterhuizen and Johanna Francina Jansen which now reflects the corrected version. SAF vol 9 erroneously shows Jan Christoffel Esterhuizen's spouse as "Johanna Francina ESTERHUIZEN d.v. Johannes Esterhuizen en Engela Erasmus" The research to correct this has been done and has been forwarded to GISA. See the document added to project for the research done.

Esterhuyse

The error involving Jacobus Johannes Esterhuyse II b2c1d9e4 and Jacobus Johannes Esterhuysen and Johanna Barendina Visser

SAF vol 9 erroneously shows Johanna Barendina Visser and offspring Linked to b2c1d4e4 instead of b2c1d9e4.

The research to correct this has been done and has been forwarded to GISA. See the document added to project for the research done.

Geldenhuizen/Odendaal

SAG Vol 2 page 233 Esterhuizen No matching record found.

If anyone has any documentation to clarify these issues please let us know. I have drawn this to the attention of GISA: CJB

Groenewald

SAG and Die Geslagsregisters van die Ou Kaapse Families have the birth order of his children incorrectly. They also had a 4th child Francina. See “About” and documents.

The birth order should be:

b1 Johannes » 26 September 1696 x 11.4.1717 Margaretha HATTINGH

b2 Coenraad » circa 1699 x 24.12.1719 Anna HASSELAAR

b3 Christoffel » 25 July 1700 x 24.9.1717 Catharina LOOS d.v. Hinrich Loos en Lysbeth Jansen

b4 Francina » 10 September 1702.

The research to correct this has been done and has been forwarded to GISA. See the document added to project for the research done.

SAG and Die Geslagsregisters van die Ou Kaapse Families have the birth order of Christoph Grunwald and Catharina Niemand children incorrectly. Johannes Groenewald should be b1 and not b2.

The research to correct this has been done and has been forwarded to GISA. See the document added to project for the research done.

SAG and Die Geslagsregisters van die Ou Kaapse Families have the birth order of Christoph Grunwald and Catharina Niemand children incorrectly. Coenraad Groenewald should be b2 and not b3.

The research to correct this has been done and has been forwarded to GISA. See document added to project for the research done.

SAG and Die Geslagsregisters van die Ou Kaapse Families have the birth order of Christoph Grunwald and Catharina Niemand children incorrectly. Christoffel Groenewald should be b3 and not b1.

The research to correct this has been done and has been forwarded to GISA. See document added to project for the research done.

SAG and Die Geslagsregisters van die Ou Kaapse Families do not have this child of Christoph Grunwald and Catharina Niemand. Fransjina is b4.

The research to correct this has been done and has been forwarded to GISA. See the document added to project for the research done.

The folllowing information incorrect in SAG. (Jacobus) GROENEWALD ≈ Stellenbosch 23.11.1760 son of Christoffel Groenewald en Elisabeth Minnaar was not married to Magdalena Rossouw as per SAG Vol 10 under the surname Rossouw. See documents.

The research to correct this has been done and has been forwarded to GISA. See the document added to project for the research done.

Kotze

Research done by Scott H. Kotze about "Hans Jurgen Kotze - Die verlore seun." which was published in GENESIS Edition 39 of 31 May 2013, p.13-16, brought to light another son of Johann Kotze, SV. This son was in fact the first born of nine children, and not eight as currently in SAF.

Genealogically the first two generations of Kotze's in SA are as follows::

Krugel

The error/omission involving [http://www.geni.com/people/Christiaan-Theunis-Gertse-Krugel/6000000027576979337]

SAF vol 20 omitted this profile and it should be f13 and siblings following to be renumbered.

The research to correct this has been done and has been forwarded to GISA. See the source documents attached, for the research done. http://www.geni.com/discussions/138421

Lourens

Petrus Gerhardus Lourens b3c1d2 was never married to Maria Magdalena Taljaard as per SAG and “Die Geslagsregisters van die Ou Kaapse Families”. The correct information and proof thereof has been sent to GISA. Please see the document under media. Maria Magdalena Taljaard was married to a Petrus Gerhardus Lourens. The research is continuing as to which Petrus Gerhardus Lourens she was married to.

The research to correct this has been done and has been forwarded to GISA. See the document added to project for the research done.

Dina Maria Jacoba Lourens, b3c1d2e12 was the daughter of Petrus Gerhardus Lourens b3c1d2 and Margaretha Johanna Blom. She was not a daughter of Maria Magdalena Taljaard as in SAG. See documents.

The research to correct this has been done and has been forwarded to GISA. See the document added to project for the research done.

Elisabeth Catharina Lourens, b3c1d2e11 was the daughter of Petrus Gerhardus Lourens b3c1d2 and Margaretha Johanna Blom. She was not a daughter of Maria Magdalena Taljaard as in SAG. See documents.

The research to correct this has been done and has been forwarded to GISA. See the document added to project for the research done.

Catharina Johanna Lourens was the daughter of Matthys Johannes Lourens b3c1d1 and Elsabe Luytje Lourens. She was not the daughter of Matthys Johannes Lourens b3c1 and Catharina Johanna Swart as per SAG and “Die Geslagsregisters van die Ou Kaapse Families”. Matthys Johannes Lourens b3c1 and Catharina Johanna Swart witnessed her baptism.

Charles Marais b2

An examination of the children of Charles Marais b2 has revealed some irregularities which are documented - http://www.geni.com/documents/view?doc_id=6000000024725638250. Feedback invited.

The revised list of children for Charles Marais and Anne des Ruelles is as follows -

  • 1. Charles c.1695
  • 2. Daniel = 1698
  • 3. Jean = 1700
  • 4. Estienne = 1703
  • 5. Debora = 1705
  • 6. Jacques = 1709
  • 7. Izak = 1711

Sara Magdalena Meurs

  • Sara Magdalena Meurs was the daughter Sara Janse (a.k.a. Leendertsz van Gijselen) – not a child of Andries Oelofse (b5) as listed in SAG v7 pp40 who died before 31 May 1709.
  • The document can be seen at -

Nel

The research to correct this has been done and has been forwarded to GISA. See the document added to project for the research done.

Niemand/Niemandt/Niemann

The first 3 generations have been revised according to the document attached.

Oelofse

  • The children of Andries Oelofse, SV/PROG as listed in SAG v7 pp40 have been thoroughly investigated and the following revision suggested.
  • b1 Johanna Oelofse * before 1690. In a relationship with Harmen Barend van der Schyff
  • b2 Leendert Oelofse ≈ Stellenbosch 20.8.1690
  • b3 Dorothea Oelofse ≈ Stellenbosch 19.10.1692 x Cornelis Campher/Kamfer 7.1.1709
  • b4 Roelof Oelofse * between c. 1692 and 1696
  • b5 Margaretha Oelofse ≈ Cape Town 16.9.1696
  • b6 Cornelis Oelofse ≈ Paarl 28.6.1699
  • b7 Anna/Antje Oelofse ≈ Stellenbosch 13.5.1703
  • b8 Johannes Oelofse ≈ Stellenbosch 9.5.1706
  • The document can be seen at -

Oosthuizen/Oosthuysen/Oosthuisen

In Volume 7 page 144 b1c7 was reported in Genesis issue 14 in 2007. The research to correct this has been done, and GISA was informed and will be reported here as soon as I have it! It is very annoying that GISA has not listed this in their errata pages. See the attached Genesis issue 14 where this research by Keith Meintjes & Ariel Rudolphis © 2007 is outlined.Our thanks to them for allowing us to share this on Geni - CJB 21-2-2012

The information from the Inventory listed below (full document attached) strongly disputes the claim in SAG that Marthinus Gerhardus Oosthuizen was c7 the son of b1 Gerhardus. "Marthinus Oosthuysen Jansz" suggesting that he was probaby the son of Jan Hendrik b5. SAG do have a son of Jan Hendrik c5 bapt. 6 Oct 1743, but with no additional information.

MOOC8/50.101a

Marthinus Oosthuysen

21 September 1792

Inventaris mitsgaders taxatie van alle zodanige goederen als ab intestato metter dood zijn ontruijmd ende naargelaten door den landbouwer Marthinus Oosthuysen Jansz: ten voordeele van syn overgeblevene wed:e Hester Cicilia Olivier ter eenre, mitsgd:s hunne bij den anderen in egt verwekte kinderen, met naamen

I have contacted GISA and will report back. There are a few Oosthuizen errata listed but not this one. CJB

Palm Meder SV/PROG

SAG Volume 7 pp 283

The numbering of the table for Meder PALM does not start correctly – the child, Meder Palm, of Meder PALM and Dorothea Catharina v.d.K is not the Stamvader – his father is. Meder jnr. is therrefore b1, and his children the “c” generation, not “b” as listed in the publication. This then changes the numbering of subsequent generations. DVNs have been adjusted and locked on GENi and GISA notified.

Pieterse

Maria Elisabeth Pieterse was the daughter of Bernhardus Jacobus Pieterse and Margaretha Brits. And not the daughter of Bernhardus Jacobus Pieterse and Elizabeth Maria Swart. See attached documents.

The research to correct this has been done and has been forwarded to GISA. See the document added to project for the research done.

Potgieter

On page 218 Aletta Maria Potgieter, b1c6d4e6 - ≈ 5 10 1794 is stated as having married Anthonie Michael Muller Graaff-Reinet 2.5.1813 .

On page 253 Maria Potgieter, b1c8d1e1 is also stated as having married him - x Graaff-Reinet 2.5.1813 Anthonie Michiel Muller ≈ 24.3.1771, burger Swellendam ✝ Uitenhage 21 1 1843 s.v. Cornelius Johannes Muller and Susanna Elisabeth Ferreira.

Maria Potgieter, b1c8d1e1 is incorrectly listed as Aletta Maria on page 253. The relevant baptism clearly has her as Maria.

Maria b1c8d1e1 has a sister b1c8d1e7 who is Aletta Maria Potgieter, ≈ 31 10 1790 ✝ 1825 x Cape Town 20 4 1808 Thomas Ignatius Ferreira ≈15 4 1787 ✝23 3 1843 (56.4) s.v. Ignatius Petrus Ferreira and Susanna Elisabeth Ferreira. She has in the past been merged with her sister who had been listed as ALETTA Maria in line with the incorrect SAG entry

This marriage entry needs to be seen to verify but it would seem that the link to (Aletta) Maria as b1c8d1e1 is probably incorrect. Under investigation

Richter

  1. GR gives him as Bernard
  2. His father inventory gives him as Bernard Wilhelm

van Rooyen

Reynier Stephanus van Rooyen was the son of Gerrit van Rooyen b9 and Martha Jacoba Ferreira and not the son of Reynier van Rooyen b4 and Hester Gouws as listed in SAG vol 10.

The research to correct this has been done and will be forwarded to GISA. See the document added to project for the research done.

Reynier Stephanus van Rooyen was the son of Gerrit van Rooyen b9 and Martha Jacoba Ferreira and not the son of Reynier van Rooyen b4 and Hester Gouws as listed in SAG vol 10.

The research to correct this has been done and will be forwarded to GISA. See the document added to project for the research done.

Rossouw

.The folllowing information is also incorrect in SAG. She was not married to Johannes (Jacobus) GROENEWALD ≈ Stellenbosch 23.11.1760 s.v. Christoffel Groenewald en Elisabeth Minnaar.

She was married in Paarl 18.11.1780 to Jacobus Groenewald = 28.3.1734 son of Christoffel Groenewald and Anna Hasselaar. This can be seen by the family members that witnessed the baptisms of all their children.

The research to correct this has been done and has been forwarded to GISA. See document added to project for the research done.

.The information of David Johannes Rossouw and Daniel Johannes Rossouw is not correct and also affects Elsje Dorothea Maryna Botes.

David Johannes Rossouw was married to Elsje Dorothea Maryna Botes and his brother to somebody else as shown by Prins Albert Baptism and Marriage registers.

The research to correct this has been done and has been forwarded to GISA. See the document added to project for the research done.

Smit -Jan Smit, SV/PROG 1

His first child, Christoffel Bapt. Delft Parochie Sint Hippolytus op het Bagijnhof (later Oud-Katholiek) folio 13v

  • 1686 November 19
  • Inf: Christoffel
  • Pat: Johan Smits Soldaet
  • Mat: Lucretia van Senne
  • Patr: Joannes Roef Soldaet
  • DTB 119, Doop- en trouwboek Parochie Sint Hippolytus op het Bagijnhof, folio 13v.

is not included in published Genealogies - see Richard Ball's pages. This throws the "B" generation out of synch. with the SAG tables and has been noted on the GENi tree.

Smuts

SAG vol 9 erroneously shows Susara-Susanna-Smuts d.o. Jan Abraham Smuts b3c2d3e10f11 instead of Cornelius Mattheus Smuts b3c2d3e10f3

The research to correct this has been done and has been forwarded to GISA. See the document for the research done.

Sonnekus/Swanepoel

The GISA file for the surname Sonnekus contains Hendrik Sonnekus b7, which is an exact word for word copy of Hendrik Swanepoel b7. GISA has been informed in 2013 via email, to date no feedback nor is it on the errata.

Taljaard

The error involving Maria Magdalena Taljaard

Maria Magdalena Taljaard was never married to Petrus Gerhardus Lourens b3c1d2 as per SAG and “Die Geslagsregisters van die Ou Kaapse Families”. The correct information and proof thereof has been sent to GISA. Please see the document under media. Maria Magdalena Taljaard was married to a Petrus Gerhardus Lourens. The research is continuing as to which Petrus Gerhardus Lourens she was married to.

The research to correct this has been done and has been forwarded to GISA. See the document added to project for the research done.

'Janse' van Vuuren

The older volumes of the SAG duplicate Daniel van Vuuren and Andries van Vuuren, possible siblings who both married into the Viljoen family. These volumes of SAG have Daniel and Andries as the sons of Johannes van Vuuren (b2) & Catharina Maree as well as Johannes van Vuuren (b2c2) and Johanna Oelofse. The correct placement for these two brothers needs to be confirmed and the duplicate ignored.

Wolff

These children were not the children of Coenraad Lodewyk Eber - their alleged father was Hendrik van de Caap. Document attached and submitted to GISA. 10.08.2014.

Zeederberg

Under research - Christiaan Hendrik (Doel) Zeederberg b10c3 in SAG should be b7c8. See his Death Notice ZIM Full report to follow at a later date. C June Barnes
