My grandfather Cecil Rhodes vander Merwe was named after Cecil Rhodes and his father had something to do with Cecil Rhodes , I do not what the relationship was. I think my Grandfather was a relative of Schalk van der Merwe and wish to find his geneology and origin. All I know is that he had a shop in Kimberley and together with his brother a cheese factory at Slabberts in Free State South Africa.
