    Hi Carl,
    My grandmother was Mary Kathleen Van Blerk, She married Reginald Richard Willan. They had 3 daughters (Barbara, Yvonne (Noreen), and Shirley) and one son, Reginald.
    My daughter, Robynne Coleen Tennant, has also been trying to put together a family genealogy. She is living in Wimbledon, London. Her email address is if you would like to contact her for the information that she has managed to gather.
    Best regards,

    Dear Dorothy,

    A photo of Niklaas van Blerk was posted on and is said to originate from the van Blerk website. He had died, however, before 1760 and hence I don’t think it is a photo of Niklaas van Blerk, as photography to produce a photo like that, was only invented 100 years later.
    It must be somebody else.
    I hope it helps.
