Since when do I manage any Family Tree let alone the NEL Family Tree. ??? I do not belong to GENi. I have been asked for help now and again. If I see anything that I know is incorrect and am able to correct it I do. THAT IS IT. I cannot afford to pay to join anything.!!!!

This is the information that I have about JAN NEL (a1b2c2) b. about 1718 Chr. 13 Nov 1718 Stellenbosch W-Cape SA I do not have a date of Death for Jan or Gesina. This information from SA GEN Vol 6 page 79

One of their children is JAN (HENDRIK) NEL marr. SARA GOUS (GOUWS) (ab1c1d5) her parents are STEPHANUS GOUS (GOUWS) b. abt 1720 Chr. 1 Sep 1720 Marr. 16 Jun 1754 Catharina HUBNER (HUPPENAAR) b. about 1736 Chr. 2 Sep 1736 This information from SA Gen. Vol. 3 page 497

The Four Gesinas:

Briefly: Jan Steenkamp (c 1680) marries Gesina "Gijsie" Visser (1686) & has a daughter, Gesina "Gijsie" Steenkamp (1718). His wife dies, & perhaps his daughter too. He remarries Johanna van Eck (c 1705) & has another daughter, Gesina "Geesje" Steenkamp (1723). For various reasons it seems more likely that it is this 1723 daughter who married Jan Nel & gave birth to Gesina Nel (1758), rather than her 1718 half sister. However, we can't be sure of this without more documentation.
