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 although I am also very interested in the Mienie, Botha, Coetzee and du Preez names that link up to our mob.


I would invite readers to also consider joining the Janse van Rensburg Family History group on Facebook  (https://www.facebook.com/groups/236574126519303/?fref=nf)


For those who are willing to spend a bit of money there is similarly a Janse van Rensburg Genealogical DNA group ( https://www.familytreedna.com/public/jansevanrensburg) - we are a small group there and would love it if more people contributed - the more data the better the results.


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 fairly 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.


Our family tree is posted online on this site! There are 19404 names in our family site.


The site was last updated on May 26 2016, and it currently has 129 registered member(s). If you wish to become a member too, please click here.   Enjoy!
