Naamgewing in vervloë se dae - Johan Lourens. Cornelia Rebellina Maritz Greyvenstein gebore 1914 en getroud met Jacobus Coenraad Lourens. Waar die hart van vol is, volg naamgewing. Daar was jare dat naamgewing van kinders 'n hoogs sensitiewe aangeleenheid was – wel vandag miskien nog so hier en daar. 'n Ongeskrewe kode het bestaan en wee die mens wat daarvan afwyk. Vandag kry kinders net name, en selde familiename. Lees verder

Lees oor die ontdekking wat gedoen is tov die Langklaagte Begraafplaas. Na ons onlangse besoek aan die Langlaagte- begraafplaas (tussen die spoorlyne) was ek baie nuuskierig oor die geskiedenis en ontstaan van die begraafplaas. Ek, Neels Coertse & Willie Botha [‘n gemeenskaplike vriend] wat vir ons die presiese plek gaan uitwys het, het 30 Desember 2015 na Langlaagte gery en foto’s daar geneem. Dis werklikwaar tussen die treinspore ingewig hoewel die eenkant van die spoorlyn in baie jare nie gebruik was nie.

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.....

WEST GAUTENG’S STORY ABOUT THEIRCEMETERY PROJECT The object of this story is definitely not to show you gangsters headstones in South Africa. We can, however, if we really want to, compile such a list and start off with Demitri Tsafendas, you remember him? He killed Dr H.F. Verwoerd] who is buried in Sterkfontein. Our branch’s leader for the GSSA cemetery project is Giel Nel. He is at the helm for a number of years already. Just a few members of our branch go quite regularly to Sterkfontein to take photographs of the gravestones. Yes, we can do with more members and public who want to help. There are more than 40’000 gravestones to photograph. And more.......

We have on occasion mentioned that we should be exposed to other people’s histories for instance Jewish and Indian stories. Well, here is a story of a survivor of the massacre in Rwanda during 1994. I recall very vividly how a friend and I sat in an ambassador’s office in Pretoria during the latter half of April 1994 and him showing us telex reports and colour photographs of killings in Roman Catholic Churches in Rwanda. And now our next story.
