My name is Stefan Janse van Vuuren and I started this site.
I came across a fascinating newspaper clipping of my Granfather, Stephanus (Fanie) Janse van Vuuren. It stimulated me into wondering who his parents were and where he fit into the wider Janse(n) van Vu(u)ren Genealogy.

My investigations have already produced some fascinating findings and, no doubt, will continue to unearth some more interesting facts about his ancestors.
One thing has already become apparent in my research; that a great many of the details differ from source-to-source, and between all the different family trees on websites across the Internet that have been created with Gerrit Janszoon van Vuren as the progenitor of the Janse(n) van Vu(u)ren family in South Africa. I am interested in researching some of these details more critically in the hope of helping to minimise some of the inconsistencies between sources.
I acknowledge the work of the Janse(n) van Vu(u)ren Familiebond managed by Pieter Christiaan (Riaan) Jansen van Vuren.
