The surname listings here were last updated on 10 August 2018. There are now 4423 surnames listed.

NOTE: Emails are answered as time permits, due to work load. Paid research work takes priority over surname requests. As from 10 August 2018, there is a backlog of 1288 emailed surname requests to reply to. Working through them and the updates on a once-a-week basis.

Please note that this blog is a reference blog only - listing surnames, and information on sources and methods. For my articles on South African history, families and places, see Bygones and Byways and Routes and Roots.
