At our last council meeting on Saturday 26 August 2017 our very able librarian Marie De Lange gave an original FAMILIA’s published during 1964/65. I asked her what shall I do with this lot? She looked at me and told me to read it. In the 1964/65 No 3 edition I found this delightful article by the historian Geo. M. Theal that was first published some 123 years  ago. Then the thought struck me to re-publish it for the benefit of my readers.

Read in this edition: This month we have a rather mixed bag of articles which I find very intriguing and fascinating. I trust that you will agree with me. Francois Greeff, all the way from London sent me his article THE REPUBLICS SOUTH OF THE LIMPOPO during 2015 although he wrote it already during 2006. It was only recently that it took on a different meaning especially after Lucas Rinken’s article AN ATTEMPT TO SHOW HISTORICALLY CORRECT PLACE NAMES was published in the March 2017 DIE DELWER/THE DIGGER. Lucas’s article attracted a lot of attention; I do hope that Francois’ article will likewise attract a lot of attention. 2 Following on Francois’ is Hennie Van Aswegen’s B3C8D1E1 JAN DANIEL KRIGE (E-SAGI 747355). I want to congratulate Hennie with his article [FAMILIA Volume 52-2017 at page 53] that was published in FAMILIA. and more.....

Read in this Newsletter An attempt to show historically correct place names – by Lucas Rinken The West Gauten Branch’s Cd, e-Sagi containing over 900 000 names were selling all over the world and I knew that many users, particularly overseas, were not familiar with South African history and the changes this created in the Republics and Colonies which became Provinces of the Union, and later, Republic of South Africa. I then attempted to use place names pertaining to the historical timeframe involved. At first, this was just hit and miss as I thought was the case, but gradually I realised that more research was necessary in order to ensure that I was not misleading users.

DIE WITKOP BLOKHUIS, VEREENIGING -Neels Coertse Sommige mense het die ervaring gehad dat hulle oupas en oumas eerstehandse ervaring van die Anglo Boere Oorlog gehad het en dit aan hulle kleinkinders oorvertel het. Nie almal het sulke geleenthede gehad nie. Neels Coertse het vertel hy het geen woord by sy familielede oor dié oorlog gehoor nie. Hy het verder vertel dat hoewel die eerste diamant naby Hopetown, waar sy pa en familie vandaan kom, ontdek was, het niemand in die familie daaroor enigsins gepraat nie. Dit het uiteraard ‘n groot leemte in sy lewe gehad.
DIE INVLOED VAN OORLOË OP ’N FAMILIE - Ds Hennie le Roux Op die tydlyn van ons familie het oorloë ’n beduidende invloed gehad. In hierdie tweede aflewering vertel ek van die invloed wat dit op die familie aan vaderskant gehad het. Twee oorloë is hier ter sprake: Die Anglo-Boere Oorlog van 1899 tot 1902 en WO II. Drie families is betrokke: Van der Merwe, Smit en le Roux.

Whilst researching the Corder family tree I have been able to trace my roots back as far as William Corder born in 1746. William married Frances Warren date unknown and the only record of a child was their son William born in 1767. William married Philippa Green of Falmouth, Cornwall, England. They had five children (Two sons and three daughters)
