The Puzzle is missing some pieces

A family member has found a photograph of a Great Grand parent with her names on the back so Francina Carolina Gustava Olivier has now been placed in the correct position in the family tree. I have a picture of a gravestone in the Graaff-Reinet cemetry showing that a Francina Carolina Olivier was married to a Barend Johannes Joubert (born 1834). Now all I need is the evidence that that the person in the photo is the same as the one on the tombstone.

I have also found a Barend Johannes Joubert (Born 1808) that lived in Graaff-Reinet. Is this the father?

Need to do some more research to see if I can link these people.

Visit to Graaff-Reinet

Visited Graaff-Reinet to see if we could find some new family roots. Found another son of Johan Hendrik Booysen (Johan Hendrik Booysen Jnr), which means that there could be some closer relatives around that we did not know about.

Family Tree

I have found software that allows you to publish a family tree – so the first section of the Booysen genealogy has already been published on the website. It includes most of the information of the current generations. Please add any missing information of the Booysen family here.
