Keith Meintjes has identified a substantial error in the
Meintjes genealogy, where three wives attributed to separate men in de
Villiers / Pama were actually married to the same man. An article on this
was published in Familia in 2011, and can be seen here:
Keith has now updated the Meintjes family genealogy to correct this error. The update can be seen and downloaded here:
This information replaces the descendants of a1b4c3, Johannes Petrus Meintjes, starting on page 27 of Keith’s book (link), up to a1b4c4, Albert Meintjes, at the bottom of page 35. This corrected information was prepared for the forthcoming “M” volume of South African Families.
Keith says, “I suggest you print the correction and place it in the book. I do not know when I will find the energy to update the book itself. It will take many hours to reformat the pages and to fix the indexes.”
has also provided files that document the genealogy of four
prominent South Africans:
Paul (Stephanus Johannes Paulus) Kruger, (10 October 1825 – 14 July 1904), President of the ZAR (9 May 1883 – 10 September 1900)
Jan (Jan Christiaan) Smuts, (24 May 1870 – 11 September 1950), Prime Minister of South Africa (5 September 1939 – 4 June 1948)
DF (Daniel François) Malan, (22 May 1874 – 7 February 1959), Prime Minister of South Africa (4 June 1948 – 30 November 1954)
FW (Frederik Willem) de Klerk, (18.03.1936 - ), President of South Africa (20 September 1989 – 9 May 1994)
Keith says: "I obtained these files, a decade ago, because I wanted to explore my relationships to these men. This is not authoritative current research, and it is not my own research. I know there are errors. But, I think they are useful and interesting."
