My great-grandpa Winnertz came from Krefeld in Germany, to marry the young South African Annie Erasmus.

I am sure he was looking very much forward to a new life in a new country, with his new wife. Unfortunately he died soon after my grandpa was born.

Ouma Annie remarried soon after the death of her husband.

Hierdie is die adres waar oupagrootjie gebly het in Krefeld in Duitsland, die huise is nog onveranderd. So mooi!
