Surnames in the Gribble Collection
The Drakenstein Heemkring’s large database of portrait and family photographs have proved to be an invaluable resource for genealogists throughout South Africa. The following is a list of surnames available. It is important to note that most of the photographs were taken during the late 19th century and early 20th century on glass negatives. The names have not been transcribed off formal lists or invoice books, but gleaned from the glass negatives themselves. Variations in spelling have been left unchanged.
