My name is Thinus Janse van Rensburg
and I started this site.
Please click here to contact me with comments and corrections. My focus is mainly on the Janse van Rensburgs and most of my information comes from the very comprehensive e-book produced by FJ Jansen van Rensburg and the research done and published on his webpages by Andre Janse van Rensburg from Australia. I am also very interested in the Mienie, Coetzee and du Preez names that link up to our mob and am gratefull for the various e-books that Colin Pretorius source on a regular basis
A lot of the information is unfortunately only based on web resources and the original sources cannot be verified - if one of the millions of contributors on the various Genealogy sites therefore makes a mistake or gets lazy the error is rapidly spread to other users.
This is especially true of records going back to the middle ages and earlier. I have therefore split my records into two trees - one that has information that should be failry reliable (from now until about the 1300s) and another one, called Ancient Genealogy, that could for the most part be more flight of fancy when going back to the Middle ages and even further back.
