About J Herman Potgieter

I’ve been researching the Pretorius and Potgieter families since 1999. During 1999 to 2005 I used to own and manage (now defunct) where I published the Pretorius family tree.

My original source for the Pretorius family was “Pretorius oor drie eeue” (Mrs ME Pretorius – ISBN 0 620 16896). I posted a complete list of the sources I used in my Media tab.

As part of my research I’ve taken pictures of the Potgieter & Pretorius gravestones in some 40+ cemeteries. In 2004 it became too dangerous to do so on my own and I stopped. I’ve also loaded a complete list of these photos in my Media tab.

In 201? I gave a copy of my GED file (+-23200 persons at that stage) and all my research to another researcher who is hosting his own website now.
