Thanks very much. Where in my previous message I mention 'gold rush' I think it should have been 'diamond rush'. My special interest goes out to the peddlers that at that time made their rounds through Namibia and visited the miners camps, boerejoden and hottentots. My ggf was one of them, there are indications that his mother Clara LEVIN had ties with the Schür family at Bowesborp. Would your family annals contain anything also might point that way?
