A collection of historical and genalogical records
This discussion group is for anyone reporting on, or seeking Douglas family members in, any of the countries in Southern Africa.
Good day! I have been trying to establish my Douglas connections here in South Africa, quite difficult as there does not seem to be too much information. My mother was Beatrice Petronella Catherine Douglas, born in 1919 in Franschoek district, Cape Colony. Her father must have been born in the late 1800's. Not sure where. His name was Thomas Douglas. They moved to Calitzdorp when she was a young girl. I know that CJ Langenhoven was related to my mother, from her mothers side. I believe that my grandmother was a Van Niekerk. The name William, Stewart, Florence and Christine is quite prominent in our family. Do you perhaps have any idea of how the connection might fit? Thank you for an amazing website!
