Looking for Schoemans from Waterval Onder, waterval Bo and Machadodorp regions.
I am researching my grandmother's family tree. She was born 21 June 1884 as Maria Elizabeth SCHOEMAN and she married Andries Johannes MEYER. Her father was Petrus Albertus SCHOEMAN. Her mother's maiden name was also SCHOEMAN, but I am not sure about her names. I think she was Elsje.
Some of her brothers and sisters had the following nick names: Faan, Ellie, Mart, Hannie and Saar. I know that some of these people farmed near Waterval Onder.
I am interested to find out about both the ancestral lines of Petrus Albertus and Elsje, as mentioned above.
Attached is a photograph of Maria Elizabeth MEYER (born SCHOEMAN) and Andries Johannes MEYER, taken circa 1906.
