DIE WITKOP BLOKHUIS, VEREENIGING -Neels Coertse Sommige mense het die ervaring gehad dat hulle oupas en oumas eerstehandse ervaring van die Anglo Boere Oorlog gehad het en dit aan hulle kleinkinders oorvertel het. Nie almal het sulke geleenthede gehad nie. Neels Coertse het vertel hy het geen woord by sy familielede oor dié oorlog gehoor nie. Hy het verder vertel dat hoewel die eerste diamant naby Hopetown, waar sy pa en familie vandaan kom, ontdek was, het niemand in die familie daaroor enigsins gepraat nie. Dit het uiteraard ‘n groot leemte in sy lewe gehad.

In hierdie tweede aflewering vertel ek van die invloed wat dit op die familie aan vaderskant gehad het. Twee oorloë is hier ter sprake: Die Anglo-Boere Oorlog van 1899 tot 1902 en WO II. Drie families is betrokke: Van der Merwe, Smit en le Roux.

Read in this Newsletter An attempt to show historically correct place names – by Lucas Rinken The West Gauten Branch’s Cd, e-Sagi containing over 900 000 names were selling all over the world and I knew that many users, particularly overseas, were not familiar with South African history and the changes this created in the Republics and Colonies which became Provinces of the Union, and later, Republic of South Africa. I then attempted to use place names pertaining to the historical timeframe involved. At first, this was just hit and miss as I thought was the case, but gradually I realised that more research was necessary in order to ensure that I was not misleading users.
