There are irregularities in the publications of South African Genealogies/Suid-Afrikaanse Geslagregisters which are being addressed by the GISA team and which will be included in future publications. A-L are already available, and no doubt new revisions will be made as new irregularities are found!

It will be necessary to personally advise GISA of any discrepancies you find - this project is purely for the benefit of Geni users. Contact GISA - info@gisa.org.za - with your corrections.

However - before you do this please check their Errata List to make sure that the error hasn't already been reported.

For those who use the older publications it would be good to list here any irregularities that have been found, supplying sources and references that support the corrections. This is not the place to list minor errors in dates, spelling, place names etc. - these need to be made in the "About" field on the profile. In these cases if necessary a curator can be requested to add a "Curator Note" to the profile drawing attention to the error or discrepancy.

Curators working on the South African tree are -

Please note sources, reasons, references etc. MUST support any claims of this nature that you make.

Please add the name of the Progenitor/Stamvader to the following list with a brief description of the basic error, in alphabetical order by last name, slotting them into the list already in place, and then load a document to the project which supports the findings. Please add the profile to the project. List individual descendants of the Prog/SV in the summary to draw attention to them, using the numbering system assigned in the SAG volume, whether it is right or not. Add the Volume and page name.

If there are errors which users need to be made aware of, but which are not yet fully documented, please add the SV/PROG to the list with a note to that effect, alerting others who may be interested. Please also add your name and profile address so that people can contact you. Alternatively start a discussion as in [1] below. If you do not know how to do this please contact one of the Curators who will happily help!

[1] If you wish to open a discussion on some names please use the discussion tab (top right of this screen) and give the name of the Prog/SV as a heading to the discussion.

Bastiaans

Recent discussions between some descendants of François Bastiaans prompted a thorough examination of the information available. This has resulted in the interpretation of the information in existing documents shown in the attached document. The table follows the information as presented by Richard Ball - http://www.ballfamilyrecords.co.uk/robberts/I041.html very closely, and his interpretation has greatly influenced this report. We are also indebted to the information presented in the eGGSA Record transcripts, the Inventories of the Orphan Chamber and The First Fifty Years Project.

Blomerus x Eybers

This concerns: Susanna Maria Elizabeth Eybers There were two Arie Erasmus Blomerus cousins living roughly the same time. According to family written documentation, b2c6d2 (22.8.1848) married Eybers. GISA mentions the wrong AE Blomerus (c. 1838) when referring to the marriage with the above Eybers. This has been taken up with A Heese and GISA informed.


van Breda, Pieter SV/PROG

This concerns the date of death of: Pieter van Breda There is an error in SAF 2011 with the date of death of stamvader Pieter van Breda. It was not 1759 as indicated in SAF, but 12/11/1756 as reflected in his "soldyrekening" (Nationaal Archief, Den Haag, Nederland : VOC 1.04.02 inv. nr. 5724 folio 223). Johann van Breda made the discovery and has uploaded a copy of this document at http://www.eggsa.org/documents/main.php?g2_itemId=1490426 .

van Buuren

SAF v5 Page 612.

Johannes Gerhardus van Buuren, b2c1d5 is incorrectly listed as b3c5d2 on page 613, child of Hendrik Oostwald Eksteen van Buuren, b3c5 and Johanna Levina Fourie. The correct b3c5d2 is Johannes Gerhardus van Buuren. DNs have been attached to both profiles supporting this - courtesy Pieter Taljaard. GISA has been notified.

Carelse

Helena Catharina b2c1 and Helena Christina NOT b2c1 b2c1 married Gerrit NEL c1800 and was still married to him in c1848, made a will with him in 1821 and fathered children after 1811 with him. She could not have been married to VD BERG in 1811. SAF v6 p75 incorrect with respect to her 2nd marriage, SAF . GISA informed indirectly.


Coetzee x Roets

Elizabeth Catharina Roets is shown married to Dirk Coetzee (a1b7c8d4) and Dirk Coetzee (a1b7c8d4) in SAF vol 7 during the same period, The latter is probably the correct version. Geni adapted and GISA notified


Coetzer

We have found an error in the Coetzer tree - page 333 SAF v 7

b1c10d2e3f4 Wentzel Christoffel * 25.8.1845 » Cradock 26.12.1845, Gazaland-trekker, pionier in

Rhodesia x c. 1880 Herculina Johanna Sophia STEYN

This Wentzel Christoffel was not married the Herculina Johanna Sophia Steyn and wasn’t on the Rhodesian trek.

His DN is at https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3Q9M-C919-3426-L?i=371&wc=WV44-9L7%3A1598032459%3Fcc%3D2517051&cc=2517051 and has been added to his profile on Geni - with the correct wife and family supported by various documents added. See Wentzel Christoffel Coetzer

The Rhodesian pioneer is Wentzel Christoffel Coetzer

His Zimbabwe death papers are linked to that profile.

Martha Catharina Jacoba (Martie) Coetser Pozyn supplies the following information

The parents of Wentzel have not been established conclusively. The following is from Martha Catharina Jacoba (Martie) Coetser Pozyn

Wentzel who went to Rhodesia was also not the son of David Cornelis COETZER * 14.7.1833 @ Cradock † 17.2.1878 (44) @ Elansdrift, Cradock x Maria Johanna BERNART (Bernard / Barnard)

Here is the Death Notice of their son Wentzel -

https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3Q9M-CSQ8-73NX-M?i=1794&cc=2517051

Presently, and temporarily, I have Wentzel married to Herculina as the grandson of

b1c10d7. Johan Harmse COETZER (Jan Harm Coetzer) ~ 10.11.1801

  • x (5.5.1822) Maria Elizabeth Anna MALAN * 9.2.1806 † c.1834 (28)
  • xx (11.2.1835) Maria Johanna BERNARD

Although I have not yet found evidence, I worked on the evidence I already have.


The name of the oldest son of Johan Harmse COETZER (Jan Harm Coetzer) and Maria Elizabeth Anna MALAN is Wentzel.

b1c10d7e1. Wentzel Christoffel COETZER * 16.7.1824 @ Cradock x APPARENTLY Johanna Petronella NN (or any of his daughter’s names).

I temporarily put Wentzel married to Herculina as above parent’s son, because their oldest son was also a Wentzel (named after his grandfather).

b1c10d7e1f1g1 Wentzel Christoffel COETZER * 1880 † 1895 (15) (Unfortunately I have lost his Death Notice !! I will send it as soon as I find it.

Another reason why I have Wentzel married to Herculina as b1c10d7e1f1: The other couple who went to Rhodesia was his cousin –

b1c10d7e7f1. Jan Harmse COETZER (John Harmse / Jan Harm) * June 1858 @ Cape Colony † 27.2.1932 (73) @ General Hospital, Salisbury, Rhodesia (Salisbury, Hatfield, Zimbabwe, Que Que) x (16.8.1882 @ Kroonstad) Herculina Johanna STEYN * 8.3.1863 @ Cradock † 13.9.1954 (91) @ Salisbury, Rhodesia. ('n Ander bron het Jan Harm se geboortedatum as 25.2.1856 @ Queenstown, Cape Colony.) Herculina Johanna was the daughter of Hendrik Balthazar Steyn and Anna Susanna van Heerden

To proof this, we have to find the Death Notice of Wentzel b1c10d7e1, which we will most probably find in Cradock Stormberg District’ archives.

Cordier SV/PROG

Birth order of children not according to DVN order in SAF v7

SAF not informed yet.

Coller

According to SAG Johanna Margaretha b2c1d5 married DU BUISON, however according to DNs b2c1d5 married DE NECKER, while b2c3d5 married DU BUISON.

Here are the respective DNs

b2c1d5

b2c3d5

GISA not informed.

Couvret

Paul Couvret SV/PROG had four children (he left the Cape in 1712 with 4 children SAF v7) Only two are listed in SAF v7 but 3 at http://www.e-family.co.za/ffy/g11/p11230.htm The 4th may come to light as that project progresses


de Beer

Maria Magdalena de Beer a2b6c7d5 - is incorrectly listed as d1 born 1785 instead of 1795. This changes the DNs for her siblings. SAF CDv2 page 612


Diemer

SAF v8 page 326

Abraham Diemer b6 - there is a 7th child not mentioned in this table - Elizabeth Diemer b6c5 who was baptised October 18, 1705. Not mentioned on MOOC8/3.31 so deceased before 18 July 1713.

the DVN's for the family change to

  • Anna Elizabet Diemer, b6c1;
  • Christina Diemer, b6c2;
  • Antie Hendrina Diemer, b6c3;
  • Elbert Diemer, b6c4;

Eber

“Genealogical Institute of SA, Stellenbosch, 2011 SAF CD v 9”


Eksteen

Firstly

The error involving Heinrich-Oswald-Eksteen-SV-PROG

He had a child before his first marriage - Hendrik Eksteen who has been numbered b1.

The name of Heinrich Ostwald Eksteen's second wife is mistakenly added in the G.R no 107 and 11, p 60 as mentioned to be his sons wife. The wife being Everdina Cruywagen.

He had 5 children with his 1st wife.

The research to correct this has been done and will be forwarded to GISA. See the document added to this project outlining the research done. Acknowledgements - Lea Herbst.

The de Villiers numbers on Geni reflect these findings.

Secondly

There has been a duplication of information in South African Families (SAF) Volume 9, 2012 in connection with b12c5d4e6 Jacobus Adriaan Bapt. 13.11.1814 and b12c5d4e12 Jacobus Adriaan Born 29.1 2.1826. Information connected to e12 has been listed under e4 as detailed below.

The revised list follows the original lists in the attached Document


Esterhuizen x Jansen

The error involving Jan Christoffel Esterhuizen and Johanna Francina Jansen which now reflects the corrected version. SAF vol 9 erroneously shows Jan Christoffel Esterhuizen's spouse as "Johanna Francina ESTERHUIZEN d.v. Johannes Esterhuizen en Engela Erasmus" The research to correct this has been done and has been forwarded to GISA. See the document added to project for the research done.


Esterhuyse

The error involving Jacobus Johannes Esterhuyse II b2c1d9e4 and Jacobus Johannes Esterhuysen and Johanna Barendina Visser

SAF vol 9 erroneously shows Johanna Barendina Visser and offspring Linked to b2c1d4e4 instead of b2c1d9e4.

The research to correct this has been done and has been forwarded to GISA. See the document added to project for the research done.


Geldenhuizen/Odendaal

SAG Vol 2 Page 454 Geldenhuys b6c3d8 Sara Johanna * 31.10.1751 † 26.8.1836 x 22.9.1776 Adriaan Izak ODENDAAL

SAG Vol 2 page 233 Esterhuizen No matching record found.

If anyone has any documentation to clarify these issues please let us know. I have drawn this to the attention of GISA: CJB


Gouws etc.

SAF CD v12 Ga-Gren - b1c1 Stephanus Gous is listed as being married to Catharina Huppenaar (Hübner) on 16-6-1754 (in fact 1756 - 1756 16 Junij Is getrouwt: Stephanus Gous, van Cabo de Goede Hoop, burger aan Swellendam, jongman. - met Catharina Hepnar, van Cabo voornt. jonge dogter. NGK Kaapstad.)

Stephanus Gous b1c1 died young

See at http://www.ballfamilyrecords.co.uk/gous/I076.html

Stephanus Gous

  • born 1720
  • baptized 1 September 1720, Cape Town
  • died between 1720 and 1721, most probably
  • Notes: In the opgaaf returns Steven Gous and Catharina Bok have no children in 1721, 3 daughters in 1725, 4 daughters in 1731, 5 daughters in 1735, the same in 1738, and in 1751 they have 1 son and 5 daughters. It would seem, therefore, that their first child, Stephanus, had died before 1725. (Univ of the Western Cape computerisation). Certainly this son, Stephanus, was not listed amongst his mother's heirs in her will of 1758, so must have died before that date without leaving any heirs.

The Stephanus who married Catharina Huppenaar (Hübner) was b6c6 - on page 446 he is also listed as married to Catharina Huppenaar (Hübner)

Groenewald

SAG and Die Geslagsregisters van die Ou Kaapse Families have the birth order of his children incorrectly. They also had a 4th child Francina. See “About” and documents.

The birth order should be:

b1 Johannes » 26 September 1696 x 11.4.1717 Margaretha HATTINGH

b2 Coenraad » circa 1699 x 24.12.1719 Anna HASSELAAR

Kotze

Research done by Scott H. Kotze about "Hans Jurgen Kotze - Die verlore seun." which was published in GENESIS Edition 39 of 31 May 2013, p.13-16, brought to light another son of Johann Kotze, SV. This son was in fact the first born of nine children, and not eight as currently in SAF.

Genealogically the first two generations of Kotze's in SA are as follows::

a1 Jan (Hannsz) KOTZE, *25.1. 1652, Königstein, †1712, Land van Waveren. x (1677) Catharina HENNEKE.

b1 Hans Jurgen KOTZE (ook genoem Hans Jury of Jan Juriaan), †circa 1717. x Kaap, 17.2.1704, Elsje (Elsie, Elsabe) VAN HOFF,16 ≈ 29.5.1689, Stellenbosch, †circa 1724.

c1 Johannes KOTZE , ≈ 13.11.1707, Kaap.

b2 Christaan KOTZE, *Königstein, †circa 1703 x Kaap, 1.12.1697, Judith Christina KLING.

c1 Johannes (Jan) KOTZE, ≈ 5.10.1698, Kaap

c2 Johannes Christiaan KOTZE , ≈ 9.5.1700, Kaap (een van hierdie twee verteenwoordig hul vader in die boedel van hul oupa Jan, 1712)

Krugel

The error/omission involving [Christiaan Theunis Gertse Krugel, c2e1f13]

SAF vol 20 omitted this profile and it should be f13 and siblings following to be renumbered.

The research to correct this has been done and has been forwarded to GISA. See the source documents attached, for the research done. http://www.geni.com/discussions/138421


Lategan

The first Beatrix Aletta Lategan (b1c4) on p 54 of SAG v5a is tied to AA Greeff. However, a very similar profile, b7c2 exist who also marries AA Greeff on the same date.

This one seems more likely: Beatrix Aletta Lategan, b7c2

This one not: Beatrix Aletta Lategan, b2c4

GISA informed.

Louw (van Breda)

see also Strober (van Breda)

Maria Magdalena Louw married to Kenne Nicolaas van Breda b1c8d3

SAF CD v4 page 630 incorrectly have this lady married to the nephew of the above Kenne Nicolaas - Kenne Nicolaas van Breda, b1c8d2e7. The DN's of both -DN Kenne Nicolaas van Breda b1c8d3 and DN Maria Magdalena Louw 1814-1873 support this theory. I the DN of the nephew could be found this would further prove the theory - attribution Marie Vermeulen-Boshoff - see Strober below


Charles Marais b2

An examination of the children of Charles Marais b2 has revealed some irregularities which are documented - http://www.geni.com/documents/view?doc_id=6000000024725638250. Feedback invited.

The revised list of children for Charles Marais and Anne des Ruelles is as follows -

  • 1. Charles c.1695
  • 2. Daniel = 1698
  • 3. Jean = 1700
  • 4. Estienne = 1703
  • 5. Debora = 1705
  • 6. Jacques = 1709
  • 7. Izak = 1711


Christina Helena Hendrika Martin

Source. SAG Vol. 5 p. 494.

According to Prof. Dr. Christian Schmid -"there is no entry in any churchbook available that this person is a daughter of Johann Caspar Martin oo Johanna Gottliebe Gönner. In the later churchbook entry about his second marriage 1807, 3 children together with his 1st wife Johanna Gottliebe Gönner (2 sons and 1 girl in Cape Town). The assets of Johann Caspar Martin mentions only the son Gottlob as he was the only offspring at Cape Town in 1835 when he died".

More information needed to prove this is incorrect..


Sara Magdalena Meurs

  • Sara Magdalena Meurs was the daughter Sara Janse (a.k.a. Leendertsz van Gijselen) – not a child of Andries Oelofse (b5) as listed in SAG v7 pp40 who died before 31 May 1709.
  • The document can be seen at -

The research to correct this has been done and has been forwarded to GISA. See the document added to project for the research done.


Niemand/Niemandt/Niemann

The first 3 generations have been revised according to the document attached.


Oelofse

  • The children of Andries Oelofse, SV/PROG as listed in SAG v7 pp40 have been thoroughly investigated and the following revision suggested.
  • b1 Johanna Oelofse * before 1690. In a relationship with Harmen Barend van der Schyff
  • b2 Leendert Oelofse ≈ Stellenbosch 20.8.1690
  • b3 Dorothea Oelofse ≈ Stellenbosch 19.10.1692 x Cornelis Campher/Kamfer 7.1.1709
  • b4 Roelof Oelofse * between c. 1692 and 1696
  • b5 Margaretha Oelofse ≈ Cape Town 16.9.1696
  • b6 Cornelis Oelofse ≈ Paarl 28.6.1699
  • b7 Anna/Antje Oelofse ≈ Stellenbosch 13.5.1703
  • b8 Johannes Oelofse ≈ Stellenbosch 9.5.1706

Oosthuizen/Oosthuysen/Oosthuisen

In Volume 7 page 144 b1c7 was reported in Genesis issue 14 in 2007. The research to correct this has been done, and GISA was informed and will be reported here as soon as I have it! It is very annoying that GISA has not listed this in their errata pages. See the attached Genesis issue 14 where this research by Keith Meintjes & Ariel Rudolphis © 2007 is outlined.Our thanks to them for allowing us to share this on Geni - CJB 21-2-2012

The information from the Inventory listed below (full document attached) strongly disputes the claim in SAG that Marthinus Gerhardus Oosthuizen was c7 the son of b1 Gerhardus. "Marthinus Oosthuysen Jansz" suggesting that he was probaby the son of Jan Hendrik b5. SAG do have a son of Jan Hendrik c5 bapt. 6 Oct 1743, but with no additional information.

MOOC8/50.101a

Marthinus Oosthuysen

21 September 1792

Inventaris mitsgaders taxatie van alle zodanige goederen als ab intestato metter dood zijn ontruijmd ende naargelaten door den landbouwer Marthinus Oosthuysen Jansz: ten voordeele van syn overgeblevene wed:e Hester Cicilia Olivier ter eenre, mitsgd:s hunne bij den anderen in egt verwekte kinderen, met naamen

I have contacted GISA and will report back. There are a few Oosthuizen errata listed but not this one. CJB

GISA to be informed


Palm Meder SV/PROG

SAG Volume 7 pp 283

The numbering of the table for Meder PALM does not start correctly – the child, Meder Palm, of Meder PALM and Dorothea Catharina v.d.K is not the Stamvader – his father is. Meder jnr. is therrefore b1, and his children the “c” generation, not “b” as listed in the publication. This then changes the numbering of subsequent generations. DVNs have been adjusted and locked on GENi and GISA notified.


Pieterse

Maria Elisabeth Pieterse was the daughter of Bernhardus Jacobus Pieterse and Margaretha Brits. And not the daughter of Bernhardus Jacobus Pieterse and Elizabeth Maria Swart. See attached documents.

The research to correct this has been done and has been forwarded to GISA. See the document added to project for the research done.


Potgieter

  • On page 218 Aletta Maria Potgieter, b1c6d4e6 - ≈ 5 10 1794 is stated as having married Anthonie Michael Muller Graaff-Reinet 2.5.1813 .
  • On page 253 Maria Potgieter, b1c8d1e1 is also stated as having married him - x Graaff-Reinet 2.5.1813 Anthonie Michiel Muller ≈ 24.3.1771, burger Swellendam ✝ Uitenhage 21 1 1843 s.v. Cornelius Johannes Muller and Susanna Elisabeth Ferreira.

Maria Potgieter, b1c8d1e1 is incorrectly listed as Aletta Maria on page 253. The relevant baptism clearly has her as Maria.

Maria b1c8d1e1 has a sister b1c8d1e7 who is Aletta Maria Potgieter, ≈ 31 10 1790 ✝ 1825 x Cape Town 20 4 1808 Thomas Ignatius Ferreira ≈15 4 1787 ✝23 3 1843 (56.4) s.v. Ignatius Petrus Ferreira and Susanna Elisabeth Ferreira. She has in the past been merged with her sister who had been listed as ALETTA Maria in line with the incorrect SAG entry

This marriage entry needs to be seen to verify but it would seem that the link to (Aletta) Maria as b1c8d1e1 is probably incorrect. Under investigation

  • Page 252 and 253 - Jurie Johannes Potgieter

There are 2 Jurie Johannes Potgieters - the information under b1c7d15e4d6 on page 251 belongs to b1c7d16e8 - the DN attached to this profile shows his parents to be Theunis Jacobus Potgieter, b1c7d16 & Geertruida Woutrina de Vos - see Jurie Johannes Potgieter, c7d16e8


Du Preez x Du Preez

This concerns: [Elsje Susanna Johanna du Preez, b1c4d2e10f1] marriage with HC du Preez. They were married 1818 in Cradock. In the marriage register, her maiden name is not given, or it is indicated as Du Preez. The entry right above the marriage is Hattingh, and she is given as Elsje Susanna HATTINGH in SAG. According to research by Thys du Preez, with the entry from Cradock's marriage register, she is in fact Elsje Susanna du Preez. GISA has been informed and they have a copy of the marriage entries.


Jansen van Rensburg

SAG Volume 9 Page 295 ERROR gives 14/10/1773 as the date of death (DOD) of b1c3 Johannes Frederik Janse(n) van Rensburg. He cannot have died 14/10/1773 if he married for a 2nd time 20/2/1794 (SAG sic). (JvR Pages have date of 2nd marriage as 20 Feb 1774). (That was the DOD of his first wife Maria Elizabeth du Buis).

Richter

  1. GR gives him as Bernard
  2. His father inventory gives him as Bernard Wilhelm


van Rooyen

Reynier Stephanus van Rooyen was the son of Gerrit van Rooyen b9 and Martha Jacoba Ferreira and not the son of Reynier van Rooyen b4 and Hester Gouws as listed in SAG vol 10.

The research to correct this has been done and will be forwarded to GISA. See the document added to project for the research done.

Reynier Stephanus van Rooyen was the son of Gerrit van Rooyen b9 and Martha Jacoba Ferreira and not the son of Reynier van Rooyen b4 and Hester Gouws as listed in SAG vol 10.

The research to correct this has been done and will be forwarded to GISA. See the document added to project for the research done.


Rossouw

.The folllowing information is also incorrect in SAG. She was not married to Johannes (Jacobus) GROENEWALD ≈ Stellenbosch 23.11.1760 s.v. Christoffel Groenewald en Elisabeth Minnaar.

She was married in Paarl 18.11.1780 to Jacobus Groenewald = 28.3.1734 son of Christoffel Groenewald and Anna Hasselaar. This can be seen by the family members that witnessed the baptisms of all their children.

The research to correct this has been done and has been forwarded to GISA. See document added to project for the research done.

The information of David Johannes Rossouw and Daniel Johannes Rossouw is not correct and also affects Elsje Dorothea Maryna Botes.

David Johannes Rossouw was married to Elsje Dorothea Maryna Botes and his brother to somebody else as shown by Prins Albert Baptism and Marriage registers.

The research to correct this has been done and has been forwarded to GISA. See the document added to project for the research done.


Smit -Jan Smit, SV/PROG 1

His first child, Christoffel Bapt. Delft Parochie Sint Hippolytus op het Bagijnhof (later Oud-Katholiek) folio 13v

  • 1686 November 19
  • Inf: Christoffel
  • Pat: Johan Smits Soldaet
  • Mat: Lucretia van Senne
  • Patr: Joannes Roef Soldaet
  • DTB 119, Doop- en trouwboek Parochie Sint Hippolytus op het Bagijnhof, folio 13v.

is not included in published Genealogies - see Richard Ball's pages. This throws the "B" generation out of synch. with the SAG tables and has been noted on the GENi tree.


Smuts

SAG vol 9 erroneously shows Susara-Susanna-Smuts d.o. Jan Abraham Smuts b3c2d3e10f11 instead of Cornelius Mattheus Smuts b3c2d3e10f3

The research to correct this has been done and has been forwarded to GISA. See the document for the research done.


Sonnekus/Swanepoel

The GISA file for the surname Sonnekus contains Hendrik Sonnekus b7, which is an exact word for word copy of Hendrik Swanepoel b7. GISA has been informed in 2013 via email, to date no feedback nor is it on the errata.


Stober (van Breda)

SAF v4 page 631 - Gertruida Wilhelmina Stober married Kenne Nicholas van Breda b1c8d2e7 son of Michiel, not his uncle as stated Kenne Nicholas van Breda b1c8d3. The marriage certificate clearly states "Michiel soon"


Taljaard

The error involving Maria Magdalena Taljaard

Maria Magdalena Taljaard was never married to Petrus Gerhardus Lourens b3c1d2 as per SAG and “Die Geslagsregisters van die Ou Kaapse Families”. The correct information and proof thereof has been sent to GISA. Please see the document under media. Maria Magdalena Taljaard was married to a Petrus Gerhardus Lourens. The research is continuing as to which Petrus Gerhardus Lourens she was married to.

The research to correct this has been done and has been forwarded to GISA. See the document added to project for the research done.


'Janse' van Vuuren

  • The older volumes of the SAG duplicate Daniel van Vuuren and Andries van Vuuren, possible siblings who both married into the Viljoen family. These volumes of SAG have Daniel and Andries as the sons of Johannes van Vuuren (b2) & Catharina Maree as well as Johannes van Vuuren (b2c2) and Johanna Oelofse. The correct placement for these two brothers needs to be confirmed and the duplicate ignored.

  • Hermanus Carel Barend Gerhardus Jansen van Vuuren is incorrectly named as Jansen van Rensburg in SAG Volume 9, page 283 - husband of Maria Cornelia Johanna Jansen van Rensburg.


Weldhagen/Welthagen

Aletta Johanna Margaretha Elizabeth Weldhagen, b1c10?

NOT LISTED IN “SA Genealogies” vol 16, Genealogical Institute of SA, Stellenbosch, 2008” - looking for further information - if she was a child of this family then subsequent children with need re-numbering CJB

b1c10 generated ? Irregularity in SAG - proof/source needed


Page 131 d5 “SA Genealogies” vol 16, Genealogical Institute of SA, Stellenbosch, 2008”

1. Aletta Elizabeth Francina Welthagen, b1c3d5 daughter of Leendert Gerhardus Hendrikus Weldhagen, b1c3 and Amarensia Blignaut

AND

2. NOT LISTED Aletta Elisabetha Francina Welthagen daughter of Frederick Albertus Welthagen, b1c4 and Emmarentie Fredrika Vorster

There is an error in the entry for 1. - she is listed as being married to Jacobus Alwyn Kruger and Barend Jacobus Fourie. Jacobus Alwyn Kruger WAS married to an Aletta Elizabeth Francina Welthagen but NOT the daughter of Leendert Gerhardus Hendrikus Weldhagen, b1c3 and Amarensia Blignaut. She was the daughter of Leendert's brother, Frederick Albertus Welthagen, b1c4, and his wife Emmarentie Fredrika Vorster. This daughter is not listed in the GISA table. See her DN attached to her profile.
