My Wish: I want ancestors who could read and write, had their children baptised in recognised houses of worship, went to school, purchased land, left detailed wills (naming a huge extended family as legatees), had their photographs taken once a year - subsequently putting said pictures in elaborate isinglass frames annotated with calligraphic inscriptions, and carved valuable and informative inscriptions in their headstones. Read more:  Now it's easy to find out as these fascinating records are available online for the first time, in association with the Royal Archives. Previously the records were only accessible at Windsor Castle by appointment.

In my attempts to establish the facts for an article published in Genesis February 2007, I have reconstructed a large part of the first three Gous generations from the various documents that I consulted and I take the opportunity of presenting the first two generations here, since there is some variation between what I have found and what is presented in De Villiers / Pama and SAG. This family tree can also be seen on my personal web site The Gous Family of the Cape where the detailed source for every piece of information is also provided, as also the article Which Pieter Gous was Aletta Vorster’s husband?
