“Genealogy without sources is mythology” I therefore endeavor to add at least one source to as many of the members of the tree as possible.
I got bitten by the genealogy bug in 1999 when my mother told me she’s the only person left in South Africa with the surname Urbasch. Finding other people with the surname Urbasch was quite easy but putting the tree together will probably be something I may not be able to complete in my lifetime. Whose tree is ever complete?
Maternal Grandfather Urbasch My initial research can be found in SAG v13 T-U. There are some mistakes though! I will submit my latest research, with sources, when the U’s are due for an update. Hopefully I can break through the brick walls before then.
Urbasch Brick walls:
My grandfather: Vaughan Daniel Urbasch – Only oral sources and no source at all for his death.
My second great grandfather: Carl Heinrich Urbasch – The line stops here as I can’t find any records for him in Prussia.
My grandmother: Marian Mclean Verster
I assumed my paternal line will be all smooth sailing because the Labuschagne family’s quite well documented and researched. Well I learned a huge lesson here, never assume! I think we must have been the black sheep of the family because nobody’s recorded our branch of the family.
Labuschagne Brick wall: Frans Engelbertus Labuschagne – I found his gravestone so I’m sure of this birth and death dates. His parents however are just well calculated guess work at this point.
Annandale Maria Petronella Annandale, b8c10 once I found her correct names and birth date it was quite easy to tie her into the Annandale family tree.
