South Africa / GISA South African Genealogies errata

There used to be a very useful website listing irregularities & corrections in South African Genealogies. Does anyone know if it's still available to view ? and, if so, how to access it ?

Yes, that's a possibility - thanks.

I'll have a search to see if I can find a Prudence Doyle.
I'd actually given up .... but now you've got me started/staring again  ;D

Yes, that might be a possibility - although it was the norm in the DRC for women to retain their maiden names. But even a Doyle sister-in-law might be a useful clue.
P.S. Hester Elisabeth's surname was Grimbeek.

Yes, at least one of each gender seems to have been the norm for Dutch Reformed Church as well. And it seems very likely indeed that she was a relative of the father, so I was really hoping she'd provide a clue in tracing his parents - if I could just work out what her first name was.

Am getting cross-eyed staring at that name !! especially after all the different suggestions - for which many thanks.The line followed for the first letter does seem closest to the writer's capital P - and the last two letters look like "er" to me.
Like Maiden Stone, I also think it should be a female, so tried searching for James Sutting/Sutling(?) on the offchance that she was his wife - clutching at straws.
Back to staring again ............... :)

Thanks for those suggestions.
It's frustrating not knowing what that name is for sure, because I'm struggling with the Doyle ancestors (the father was born in Dublin), so it would be useful to discover another relative in SA.

Can anyone make out what the first name of the second baptism witness is ? "----- Doyle" (underlined in black)
That first letter has got me stumped, and I cannot find a similar letter on other pages.
The record is here if you want to see more of that handwriting https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3QSQ-G9Z5-KQPK?i=552&cc=2155416
