Nuusbrief Desember 2014.pdf

In die nuusbrief is daar 'n pragtige fotoreeks wat die gebeure van 2014 toelig. Wes-Gauteng se tema vir 2015 word aan die hand van 'n filosofiese gesprek deur Bob Saunders omskryf. Miskien moet jy jou perspektief verander. Daar is mos iets agter die muur – een van die probleme is hoe om verby die muur te kom? Miskien moet jy bo-oor klim? Miskien moet jy om loop?

Nuusbrief Augustus 2014.pdf

In the transcribing of immigration records from old registers in the archives I noticed the large
number of single women who arrived at Port Natal during the period 1850 to 1920. It begs the
question: Why? In this piece I have drawn heavily on a work done by Marilyn Barber-“Domestic Servants: Confederation to the First World War”, published in Canada and available at http://www.chinookmultimedia.com Obviously Barber’s work is about Immigrants to Canada but

the circumstances mirror those of South Africa to a certain extent. (JD)

HennielerouxDie Le Roux’s
In 1988 het ek en my vrou die voorreg gehad om ’n besoek af te lê aan Blois, die geboorteplek van my stamvader Gabriel le Roux. Die familienaam “le Roux” of “Roux” verwys na mense met rooi hare. Dit was 300 jaar nadat hy en sy broer Jean met die driemaster Voorschooten in Saldanabaai aangekom het. Hulle het reeds op 31 Desember 1687 uit Delftshaven (Rotterdam) vertrek. Gabriel en Jean was deel van 22 Franse immigrante wat met die Jupiter na Tafelbaai toe geneem is.

Nadat ons in die Suid-Afrikaanse Familieregister (SAF/SAG) of in die baie handige webwerf Stamouers http://www.stamouers.com/ gekyk en vasgestel het, dat dié bepaalde voorouers wel van Nederland af komstig is, wil ons nou meer uitvind van hulle ouers en grootouers in Nederland. Danksy die digitalisering en transkribering van Nederlandse argiewe kan ons nou hierdie soektog in ons eie huise en op ons eie rekenaars aanpak.
2. WAS STAMVADER ‘N BEMANNINGSLID OP ‘N VOC-SKIP?
Indien die stamvader gedurende die jare 1652-1798 in die Kaap aangekom het, is die kanse goed dat hy as ‘n amptenaar van die VOC of as ‘n bemanningslid op een van hulle skepe gekom het. Die VOC was nie die enigste redery van die tyd nie, maar wel die grootste en het vanaf 1700 tot 1795 bykans 655 0001 mense vervoer. Die verkeer van mense via, na en van die Kaap sou dus ook besonder groot gewees het.

The keynote speaker Saturday 16 March 2013 at the Gala Dinner of the GSSA was Dr Janet Du Plooy. I urge you to read her speech and to pay attention to the extremely fine detail – it is apparent that she did a lot of research. I want to congratulate her again for her tour de force with this research. This speech is peppered with such a lot of information that cries out for any researcher who is interested in this aspect of life and how it impacted on his/her family story to follow it up with his/her own deeper research. Although this speech is great on detail, you should remember that she could not go into deeper details as she then would have to write a book.

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.

The revamping of the branch libary is reported. It is reported that our members got stuck into our Branch’s library and overhauled it. It is a massive task and so far it necessitated two Saturday’s of hard dedicated work. They worked and also stopped to have something to eat and the chat [I venture a guess what they were chatting about? Probably what to do next!!!]
