Magdalena Salomina Scheurkogel (Born 25 November 1903 - Passed 26 March 1989)
Married to Barend Johannes Opperman (Born 3 March 1900 - Passed 17 April 1959)
They are buried alongside in Machadodorp cemetry.

Magdalena was my grandmother, mother to my father, also Barend Johannes Opperman (Born 11 December 1927 - Passed 2 December 1993). Together they had five children, three daughters ( Rita, Marie and Magdel) and two sons (Barend and Abraham)

I would like any additional information and photo's please. I'm trying to trace the family back to when they came to South Africa and then possibly where they originated from in the Netherlands.

I currently reside in Perth, Western Australia.

If anyone can help please contact me at:

Hi Ben

Magdalena was my first cousin twice removed. I guess we're some sort of cousins too. Her grandfather Abraham was the progenitor Scheurkogel in South Africa. See Abraham Scheurkogel

He came from s'Herlogenbosch, Brabant-Noord, arriving in SA on 23.12.1852.

I have traced the line back pretty far. Most of the profiles should be pubic, so you should be able to see for yourself. I have a couple of documents I can send you.

I can't add any more people to my tree without upgrading, so please link your tree with mine via Magdalena (I haven't added her kids).

Hope that all helps!
