Welcome to the eGGSA Branch

SwartlandThe second baptismal register of the Swartland Nederduits Gereformeerde Kerk congregation has been transcribed by Lizette Svoboda from Thailand. This data has been added to the searchable data in the eGGSA Baptism Registers.

It is interesting to note in this register that the female name Huibregtje, the Dutch form of Huberta, as found in the 1700s, has changed by the early 1800s to the modern Afrikaans form of Huibrecht, now a female name in Afrikaans, but which in Dutch is a male name, ie. Hubert.

The data has been transcribed from photographs of the Cape Archives document VC 667, a photocopy of the original register which is housed in the NG Kerkargief, Noordwal-Wes, Stellenbosch, as document G5 3/3.
