Search the Gravestone Picture Library

The eGGSA Gravestone Photograph Library contains many photographs of gravestones.  You can use the facility below to search for personal names in this collection.


For Afrikaans name with more than one part, search under the main, distinctive part, eg: for VAN ZYL, search using only ZYL, for DE VILLIERS use just VILLIERS. When searching for a name which may have more than one spelling,  and in the 18th and 19th centuries the spelling of surnames was often very creative, you may need to be creative as well. Try searching for just that part which is usually the same in both forms, for instance MEINTJES | MEINTJIES: search for MEINTJ,  for VAN RENSBURG | JANSE VAN RENSBURG: search for RENSBURG,  for MACALLISTER | MCALLISTER | MC ALLISTER: search for ALLISTER, for  VAN DER MERWE | V.D.MERWE: search for MERWE.
