Family and personal

In the 1980s I have done genealogical research mainly in the archives in Cape Town, Pretoria and Bloemfontein. I focused on the Steyn surname, more intensely on Johannes Steyn (who arrived in the Cape in 1748) and descendants, but also tried to unravel the relationships with the Douwe Gerbens Steyn (who arrived in the Cape around 1688) genealogical line. A few other genealogical lines were also followed.
