Family Bible.
Die Bybel is in bruin leer gebind en het koperklampe. Die Bybel is net na 1748 gedruk en is in Hoog-Hollands. Die buitekant is gebrosjeer met "Bybel". en "H.J. GREEFF". en "Geb: 2:1:1846". Op een van die binneblaaie is die volgende inskripsie in 'n baie bewerige hand geskryf: "Hendrik Johannes Geboren den 2 January 1846  H.J. Greeff Slangfontein  G (?) 2 January 193...1943." Ek weet Slangfontein was die plaas van grootjie noord van Upington. My oupa het die plaas verkoop en toe Nederlea gekoop.

Revolver.
Webley .455, (Mark III), c 1890 to 1899. This side arm  was used by the British Army and Navy from about 1887. This particular one was probably confiscated from a British officer during the Anglo Boer War of 1899 - 1901. The earliest documentation relating to this revolver is a licence to own it, dated 1957.

Doyley crotcheted by Totie Greeff, born de Wet

Subject: Doyley van Ouma Totie Greeff (de Wet)

Hi Francois,

Hierdie pragtige doyley, wat ongeveer 80 jaar gelede deur my ouma Totie
(eggenote van G J Greeff) gemaak is, is deur Magdalena Susanna (Dalene)
Kotze, *3 Des 1926 geskenk. Haar moeder, Magrieta Wilhelmina de Wet, *29
Maart 1888, wat dit waarskynlik as 'n geskenk by haar tante, Ouma Totie
gekry het, het dit vir haar gegee.

Ek sal dit raam en 'n foto met byskrifte op die webblad plaas. Jy sal dit
seker intussen op die register van historiese bates wil plaas.

Groetnis,

Jan

G-naand Annatjie,
Ek lei af van jou naam dat jy moontilk afrikaans kan wees. Na watter Greeff's soek julle? My Ouma was 'n nooi Greeff. As dit sal help kan ek by haar hoor hoeveel sy van die Greeff's weet.
Ek weet dat haar pa (my grootjieoupa) 'n kruigsgevange op St Helena was in die oorlog.  Hy het vir sy vrou diè spieëltjie uit klip gemaak terwyl hy daar was, dit word nou van geslag tot geslag aan gegee vir die vroue in die familie met dieselfde naam.
Laat weet asb of ek vir julle inligting kan bymekaar maak.

Groete,
Lida
