About Pieter Booysen

South African Genealogical numbering system DVN/DVP
Please DO NOT add these to any field other than the Label field, or About

These numbers MUST NOT be added to the surname, added as a middle name or used in a display name. They can be recorded in the "About".

The genealogical numbers used in the South African tree were introduced in the 19th Century by C.C. de Villiers. (DVN or DVP) The old Pama/De Villiers genealogies were used by the HSRC and later GISA to compile the SAG volumes covering the years 1652 to 1830. This set of 17 books were completed in 2011. Then GISA started to produce the new set covering the years 1652 to 1930. This is now called SAF (SA Families).

In this system the genealogical number of the South African Stamouer/progenitor is “a” (although on the South African Geni tree we us SV/PROG instead), and his children are numbered chronologically “b1”, “b2”, “b3” etc.; his grandchildren are the ‘c” generation, great grandchildren “d” and so on. (e.g. b1c3d5e2f5g8 etc.)

Please Note: This numbering system is not obligatory. It is not universally endorsed by everyone. You do not have to add them, but if you do, please respect the request above.

If there was more than one SV/PROG then they would be SV/PROG1/ SV/PROG2 etc. and their family would be numbered SV1b2c6 etc. or SV2b4c6d7 etc.
