I personally do not have any problem with the markers depicted.
Sensitivities could however arise from descendants who may be taken aback to stumble upon their ancestral lines, but nevertheless one's forebears cannot be altered.
I would however strongly resist any image depicting a slave in shackles as that may not be as tasteful as the symbols you suggest.
Having expressed this opinion, I feel I am entitled to do so, as in my ancestral Kannemeyer line there are many examples.
HI you both. In a country where the word "slave: has become rather a personal issue and soome people might look back and say thatis racial, I really do think the word all in all should be more subtle. I don't know what. But a fact is a fact. We don't want to be accused of any dirt again, would we.
Personally I don't mind but is can be sensitive.
I hope this "boertjie" said it correctly now and it did not come out wrong - Afrikaans onthou.
Slave was a slave - you can't change history! But I will remove the image if it is preferred not to draw attention to them. We can't go upsetting the poor lion! I don't see anything wrong with the curator note. These were a very particular group of people, just as the Huguenots etc. were.
I think I tally around 10 slaves in my personal Family History.
