More VOC Ships' Pay Ledger Accounts (soldijboeken)

Johan Diedericks has extracted from the data at National Archief at the Hague, 123 more of these VOC employees who settle at the Cape of Good Hope, and made them available onthe eGGSA web site. They have now joined those previously extracted by Lizette Svoboda, on the Stamouers.com section of our web site. Our thanks go to Johan and Lizette for making their hard work available. 

VOC (Dutch East India Company) Accounts from Ships' Pay Ledgers, 1662-1805, contain information about many of its employees who settled at the Cape. Below are a number of excerpts from the online links to the Nationaal Archief (The Hague, Netherlands) web sites gahetNA and VOC - Opvarenden which seem likely to refer to those settlers. If you have any to add, please copy to a Word document and email them to the Stamouers editor.

The Nationaal Archief is making a huge effort to digitize the complete collection of the VOC and they hope to have it completed by 2017.

As of May 2016 almost all the Zeeland accounts have been digitized and put online, a large number of the Amsterdam ledgers are currently being scanned and should be available at the end of May or early June; the next batch is already planned.

For an introduction to these Ships' Accounts (soldijboeken) please see Corney Kellers' explanation on the Rekeningen uit de Scheepssoldijboeken 1662-1805 page.

800 000 Gravestone photos on the eGSSA website!!

Congratulations to Riana le Roux and her team of volunteers for this outstanding achievement. It is the product of many years of hard work, patience and dedication.

A big thank you to all of you going out to the cemeteries to take the photos, to those of you doing all the uploads onto the website, indexing the photos and cemeteries, maintaining our website. The project is extremely valuable to us and we appreciate your contributions.

The project is growing so fast that we are looking forward to the next milestone.

NesserakCorney Keller het foto's van die skip rekening (scheepsoldijboek) vir Isaack Dalgue, wat op die skip Nesserak aan die Kaap aangekom het in November 1713, aan die groeiende versameling van hierdie dokumente wat hy handhaaf bygevoeg. Dit is beskikbaar op die eGGSA webwerf: Rekeningen uit de Scheepssoldijboeken 1662-1805..

Hierdie boeke bevat besonderhede van al die manne en al die transaksies op 'n enkele uitgaande reis. Elke keer 'n skip vir die ooste vertrek het, was 'n nuwe grootboek in duplikaat opgestel. Toe die skip Batavia, in Indonesië, bereik is 'n afskrif (skaduwee-kopie) daar gedeponeer en die ander afskrif (meester-kopie) het na Nederland teruggekeer. Dit was die kopieë wat tuis gekom het wat oorleef en is nou in die Nasionale Argief in Den Haag beskikbaar.

By die 18de eeuse dokument van Dood Kennisgewings in die Kaapse Argief, op die bladsy waar Dalgue se dood aangeteken is, kom daar 'n nota deur Colin Graham Botha bygevoeg: Vide wills of the Orphan Chamber vol 11 no 29 of 1795, Will of Isak Dalque (died 6.4.1759) and Sara van Wijk wherein he states his proper name was Johannes Augustus Dreyer.
