I have some documents that might be of interest to Oosthuizen managers

+4 votes
So this isn't actually a question. I am working through hundreds of pages of scanned documents relating to one of my profiles and have found a lot of information relating to the Oosthuizen tree. This was the family that owned the farm Langlaagte, where the main reef of the Witwatersrand was discovered. I do not have time right now to get sidetracked into a whole new tree but am sure this information would be invaluable to people working on Oosthuizen. It is a big pdf document (42,3 MB) that would need to be sorted through. It contains mostly sworn statements given to a commission of enquiry in 1938. Names contained are Willem Adriaan Jacobus Christoffel Oosthuizen, Anna Susanna Oosthuizen (born Bester), Cornelis Gerharus Oosthuizen, Anna Susanna Oosthuizen born Steyn and many others, with their relationships and who owned which bits of Langlaagte, as well as their relationship to George Honeyball. I don't really know where to put this (because of its size) so that others can benefit from it as well. If anyone has a pdf editor that can break this into component parts, and edit properly I would be happy share it via dropbox or something similar. Message me if you would like to get it.

Good day,

Could you kindly please share the document with me? I am Adele (Oostuizen) Maree and my profile is Oosthuizen-657.

If there is any information pertaining to my family tree, I might be able to add it and in so doing, assist others with their research.

Kindest Regards

Oh my gosh, that was so long ago I can't remember what it was -- let me check up and see what I  can find. It was something buried in something else ...
OK found it - will work out how to share such a huge file.
Thank you very much. I'm sorry for the inconvenience, but if I find a way to ease the difficulty in sharing such a huge file, I will let you know :)
Not an inconvenience at all - mail me directly on sharoncaldwell@real-learning.org then I can send a dropbox link to your address.
