Wilhelmina Elizabeth Johanna Booysen

Andrew has sent an email looking for more information of the ancestors of Wilhelmina Elizabeth Johanna Booysen. He writes "she was born on 6 Mar 1892 in the Cape and married my grandfather Felix Harold Lavarack in Jo’burg in 1919. I have a note that her father was Ben but not sure if this is correct."

Is there anyone out there that can help?

Nicolaas Johannes Booysen

I have received information that there is a Nicolaas Johannes Booysen – son of Johannes Booysen (Bap 3 March 1737) and Elizabeth Haarhof (Baptised 16 February 1766) Apparently he was married to Anna Ingenessa (Angenessa) Scheepers.

I can find no other record confirming this child. Even Heese and Lombard do not record this child.

Can anyone shed any light on this?


We have a Wilhelmina Thuisina Lehman in our family tree. Lehman is not a common South African name but I am unable to trace any of her family.
