Hi, I am Lauretta Moolman nee Landman.

I am searching for Parents of Gerhardus / es Coenraad Landman and Susanna Johanna Van Rooyen. They were married on the 28th October 1912 in Paulpietersburg, Natal, South Africa.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Many Thanks

Lauretta, I found a Nel + a de Waal amongst the baptismal records of the Anglican + Methodist records under Roots Web and familysearch for those two churches. The English ministers couldn't always spell the Afrikaans names or the Afrikaners anglicized their names. For example : Christoffel Johannes became  Christopher John + another time Stoffel Johannes. Good luck!

Both of them have estates listed in the index of the Natal Archive in Pietermaritzburg. You will probably find the answer to your questions in there.

Another lead is that the marriage register says that they both came from the farm Rooipoort. Googling on Landman Rooipoort Paulpietersburg reveals that the current owner Abrie Landman is married to Michelle and that they have a son Daniel who was three years old on 15 May 2015.
