Cape Town NGK transcripts continue with 1712-1756
Corney Keller is continuing his transcripts of the early Cape Town NGK church registers and is now working on the marriage register of 1713 to 1756. He has so far completed years 1713 to 1735 and these can be seen in the eGGSA transcript library. This project, which he began in March of 2012, so far covers the earliest church registers, from 1665 to the end of the second register book 1712, baptisms and marriages.
In addition he has transcribed the letters sent as reports to the Classis Amsterdam (the body governing the church at the Cape) by the sieckentrooster, Pieter van der Stael, for the period 1656 to 1663, before a regular minister and registers were established at the Cape. These transcripts can be found here: The Van der Stael Letters, and the birth and marriage records contained in them have been extracted and are available here: Baptisms 1653 to 1664 and Marriages 1656 to 1662.
