One of our West Gauteng Members of the GSSA, General [retired] Colin Steyn gave me a photocopy of this article that was published in SERVAMUS Community-based Safety & Security Magazine December 2016. After reading it, I decided that it is worthwhile to publish it in our magazine DIE DELWER/THE DIGGER. Daan Pieterse van ons Wes Gauteng Tak en vriende was met vakansie in Magoebaskloof en het heerlik rondgery en ‘n goeie ervaring beleef. Hy het nie net aan hom en sy eie genietinge gedink nie, maar ook aan DIE DELWER/THE DIGGER. Terwyl hy as toeris daar rondgery het, het hy hierdie storie vir ons geskryf en foto’s geneem.

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 [1894] 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.

Lees die aanbieding by die Wes-Gautengtak. LM & MARIANA DU PLESSIS : BETROKKENHEID BY DIE DORSLANDTREK-VERENIGING: Weens die beperkte spasie beskikbaar, is dit onmoontlik om reg aan die geskiedenis te laat geskied. As ‘n gebore (1945) Suidwester, het ek al die jare ‘n belangstelling in geskiedenis gehad. In Augustus 2003 en 2008 het ek byeenkomste as ‘n nasaat van die Dorslandtrekkers se feesvieringe by Swartbooisdrift in Kaokoland bygewoon. In 2008 het ek van daar ook Angola besoek, om te kyk waar my ouers gebore is. In my soeke na my wortels, het ek 8000 kilometers gery! Dit het verdere belangstelling by my gewek, en so het ek my familie-navorsing begin.
