Brendan,


 


if you need more particular information,do ask


 


Marina

Hello Marina,

 

The Greyling family in SA is very large, there are a lot of different stems, the family originated in England, Egan is a very Irish surname.

 

To research back your will have to follow the paper trail, you need their parents names.

 

You have enough information to apply to Home Affairs for their birth certificates, I believe that Johannes father was also Johannes Jacobus latin for XXXXX XXXXX. He died 1956

My grandfather was Abraham Gerhardus Wilhelmus Greyling, ?1899-?1989

Hi Marina,

 

I have checked all the online records, nothing for Abraham, he may be related to Abraham Carel, he had a brother Johannes Gerhardus.

 

Civil registration started in South Africa 1890, I would think there was only one A.G.W. Greyling born 1898 / 1900.

 

Apply to Home Affairs for his birth certificate, it is a nice document to have.
