Family History

Welcome to the genealogy page of the Baard (my father’s) and Townshend (my mother’s) family lines in South Africa. Since starting research in 2009 I have been able to document their origins back to the ancestors who emigrated from Europe. I will document these lines and those families close to the direct lines (spouses who have joined). As a result there is already extra information on the Rowan, Simonis,Van Rooyen, Berning, Lind, Stander, Victor, Hugo and Deetlefs families. More families will be added as I get access to new family records. For those who can already see their records on the site, please make this site your own. I can add extra information for you and correct any errors that you may find. MAJOR UPDATE UNDERWAY, SO PLEASE BE PATIENT - Frank Baard - 19 February 2017.
