The trees are, in alphabetical order:
All Trees. This is not a tree,
but a search option to search for people on the entire genealogical
database of www.Greeff.info. The search
includes all the trees on this list.
AS Greeff Tree.
This tree is the family tree of Professor (emeritus)
Andre Servaas Greeff and it was researched by him over a period of 17 years.
It contains his ancestors and his descendants and the descendants, within
limits, of Matthias Greeff, the progenitor of the Greeff family in South
Africa. It details cousins and relatives, including descent in some female
lines. As far as possible he lists all siblings of each of his Greeff
ancestors. This is a remarkable and excellent piece of research.

This tree is continuously
BFM Greeff Ancestors. This
tree is limited to my own research into the ancestors of my children
only. It is
intended to be a small tree.
Boyd Census. This
tree was created to track all the Boyd people who were born in
Cleasby, in an effort to find the birth of John Percival Boyd, whose
military record states that he was born there. A diligent search of
both Free BMD and the Census records from 1841 to 1901 shows no
possibility of JP Boyd having been born there, unless he changed his
name from plain Percival Boyd, who was born at Cleasby. Percival
Boyd also spent 12 years in the Yorkshire Regiment, which the South
African Military Record of JP Boyd states he had done. No JP Boyd
has been found in the [Yorkshire Regiment] Discharge Records, where
Percival Boyd was found.
Greeff Main Tree. This tree
continuously grows as other files are added to it by
members of the Greeff family from all over the world. It records the descendants of Matthias Greeff (the
progenitor of the Greeff family in South Africa). It is intended to become a
very big tree, eventually including all members of the Greeff family
all over the world. You may add your family tree to this tree, just mail a gedcom
file to Greeff@Greeff.info
. This tree is
Germany. This Tree is taken from the book by Victor Bredt, Geschichte
der Familie Greeff, which was published in Germany in 1941. It contains a
family tree of the Greeff family in Germany, and a record of some of then
who emigrated to America, together with some American members of the family.
small study I did as a favour for someone else.
Lichtenburgstam. This tree records ALL the descendants of Hendrik
Adriaan Greeff, the founder of the town Lichtenburg in South Africa.
Descendants in both male and female lines are recorded. This remarkable and
excellent tree is constantly researched by Jan Greeff of Barberton, South Africa.

This tree is continuously updated.
Rudman Descendants. This whole tree was sent to me by someone whose name
I have forgotten. I would very much like to find out who that person was, so
that I can give proper recognition and credit to the researcher who did all
this excellent work.
Descendants. This tree records the Kempen family in South Africa; the
descendants of the progenitor in South Africa, Willem Kempen. This tree was
my first attempt at genealogy, in which I was assisted by my wife at the
time, who passed the tree to Willem Kempen in Australia. He added to it, and
then passed it back to me. He has many Kempen photographs, which are not on
this web site.
