Hello, Santhey...

In my data I have a Van Zyl with exactly the same names: Casper Willem Johannes (*11-07-1893), farmer at Graafwater. He married (27-04-1914 / Leipoldtville) to Christina Johanna Alberta Geusteyn. Could they be the parents of ''your'' Casper?
by
Leon,

ek begin nou bietjie grawe in die voorgeslag en ek sien nou jou comment hier.  CWJ van Zyl gebore 11/7/1893 was my oupa.  Het jy verdere info rondom hom?
Hello, Santhey...

Indeed I have more info about your granddad. He was baptized 08-08-1893 in Clanwilliam and married your grandma 27-09-1914 in Leipoldtville.
His parents were: Gideon Johannes David van Zyl (born 19-03-1868) and Maria Berendina Johanna Elizabeth Geysteyn (same family name as your grandma ;-))
I should be glad to receive the data / names of your dad and ma (and yours !!), so I can join them to the database.
If you go to my website www.moustache.nu/genea/parentelen/z-afr-b6/z-afr-b6.frm3.htm you can follow the line back to ''stamouer'' Willem van Zijl & Christina van Loveren.
