Johannes Maree

My name is Johannes Maree so what? It didn't mean much to me - other than that I was named after my father's eldest brother - till I read the article in the June-July Youth 81 about family trees (more formally known as genealogy). It sounded quite exciting, so I decided to take up John Halford's challenge and look up my family tree. Being a complete amateur, I decided to start at the library. There I came across a book about two Maree brothers who were quite colorful characters. That did it - I just had to find out if I was related to them! I wrote to the author, Dr. Lombard, with not too much hope of an answer. I was pleasantly surprised, therefore, when I received a most helpful answer from his assistant, Mr. Jooste, at the Human Sciences Research Council who invited me to come and do some research for myself at the archives in Pretoria (40 miles from my home in Johannesburg).
