Floris Tromp, South Africa
« on: Monday 06 November 17 07:50 GMT (UK) »
Floris Tromp (1806 - 1863) was my 3XggGrandfather.
I have been trying to figure out his extended family for some time now.
My original data, (from an aunt , sister of my grandmother) which I took to be accurate, showed that he had 6 children by Johanna Theunissen.
Later research told of a first wife, (Johanna was the second), Willemina Margaretha Myburgh (or Meyburgh) with 13 children.
When I googled his name I came up with many websites mentioning him with a bewildering number of children, different names and different dates. They are definitely  about him, because his dates more or less correspond.
Anyone with any info which will help me, will be gratefully received.

Hi Clive

Do you know at which places he lived when he got married and when he died?
Which kind of research did you do?
Did you look at the churchbooks at familysearch?
Or did you look here: http://www.eggsa.org/
