Catharina Rheeder Joubertina, South Africa
« on: Friday 27 July 18 09:32 BST (UK) »
I've looking for more information on my Grandmother Catharina Rheeder from Joubertina South Africa.
She gave birth to my Father on the 13th April 1945 in Port Elizabeth, South Africa.
Seh became pregnant from a Mr Walker, serving as a Cpl in the RAF 42 Airschool in Port Elizabeth.
He left for Scotland before the Birth and promised to return, but he never came back.
My Father was adopted at the Redcross Home by a Mr Charles Schlumpf in Port Elizabeth.
in 1990 my Father found out that he was adopted and we could trace his Mum to Joubertina, South Africa. My Father meet his Mum, but we never could trace his real Father.
Sadly both my Grandmother and Father have passed away so I haven't got any more Information.
But still I would love to get more information regarding my South African Roots.

I would love to get more Information on Catherina Rheeder from Joubertina.
I know she had a Sister called Johanna. My Grandmother lived in Joubertina in the Huus Formosa, a old age Home. I contacted the Home but I got no Informations.

There are lots of records for Rheeders on FamilySearch.
It looks like they were of Dutch origin. 

Did Catharine subsequently marry?

Thank you bevj

no, Cathariana never married.
I have a photograph of her parents and they are called Jacob and Lanni or Sanni. That must be a Nickname, but I'm not sure what the real name of her mother is.....

This is a long shot, but the mother's name could certainly be abbreviated to Sanni or something similar.

Hi
I have no knowledge how the following websites works, it looks like you have to pay to view and I don t know what information that might yield but possibly worth a look?

Thank you very much for your Inputs.
Johanna was her Sister, so the Names you gave sadly don't fit.

Also the Family lived in the Eastern Cape, about 170 km from Port Elizabeth, in a tiny Village called Joubertina.
