My husband's family is from Concordia in Namaqualand. His father was Johannes Jacobus Saal who died in a motorcar accident about -50 years ago. His mother was Clara Paul, who relocated to Cape Town in the early 1960. Does anyone have any info re these 2 families? Who their parents were, and where they came from. Any information will be most welcome. God Bless, and thank you.
My mother's father was also a Johannes, Jacobus Saal and was from Concordia. My grandfather was married to Mary Johanna Heyns from Namaqualand. They had three children, two boys and a girl - born in approximately 1941 ; 1943 and 1945
According to my mother, my grandfather died in a car accident - about 50 years ago exactly. He was a dental technician and travelled often. Not sure about his mother relocating though?
