Many South Africans whose ancestors lived at the Cape are part of one big extended family. The custom of referring to seniors as "oom" or "tannie" is not just out of respect but in deed reflect the reality of the close familial bond and the small collective genetic pool. South African Stamouers / Progenitors came from Africa, Europe, Asia and other places. Some were VOC workers, free settlers, Huguenot, Slaves and Indigenous.
During 2014 in conjunction with the 10th birthday of the eGGSA webpage a competition was launched for submissions of new Stamouers/Progenitors data for addition to this webpage. The decision was made to now include any Stamouer/Progenitor with a descendant-line to the web page.
If you would like to help with the 'development' of this new extended Stamouers/Prognitors web page please submit your article, here are some submission guidelines. . Submissions whether English or Afrikaans, will be placed on the web page in the language of submission.
Any corrections or additional data on posted 'Stamouers/Progenitors' articles are welcomed.
N.B. We can't vouch for the accuracy of the information and must still be verified by the genealogical researcher.
