Cape Town Marriages 1713 to 1756
This is the third series of registers of the Dutch Reformed Congregation in Cape Town following the second register which covered the baptisms, marriages and memberships for the period 1695-1712.
This register contains marriages over the period 1713 to 1756. This cluster (VC 621) also contains a second register containing membership for the period 1713 to 1733 and section 1680 to 1757.
The pages of both the marriages and members are rubber stamped with ascending numerals starting with no. 1. The marriage register starts on page 1 and end on page 95. The members register is numbered from page 1 through 17 for the period 1713-1733 and page 18 through 71 for the period 1680-1757.
The readability of the register is fair to good considering these are photographs of photocopies of the original. The handwriting of D'Aillij over the years 1713 to 1725 contribute to the readability. Text that was already faded and smudged in the original has become even more difficult to read. Also when the photocopies were made, the imaging technology was not what it is today. The initial pages of the register have some overexposed areas, probably caused by this process. Any problems of missing information of this kind, as also doubtful interpretation or legibility, are indicated with square brackets.
