Hello, hope you are well. I would really love to know about the above chap. He was my Great Great Oupa Georg Heinrich Portwig's son. Georg Heinrich Portwig was a member of the Cape Police. I wonder what the implication were to his family, when his son was declared a Cape Rebel. Jacobs's was sent to Ceylon, by the way. The was a family story that Georg Heinrich and family were in the concentration camps, I think in Vryburg. I have the record of 2 of his daughters who died their from the website , www2.lib.uct.ac.za/mss/bccd/Persons/P/192/0/ , they are Cla a and Louisa Potwig. I am trying to find out if I have the right family as those names are not exactly the same. Their ages, age differences match and the one girl was Louise instead of Louisa. Sorry this is becoming a bit long. Basically do you know or know where I can find out more about, Jacobs's Portwig, Georg Heinrich Portwig (employed as an interpreter in the Vryburg concentration camp, family story only!). Thanks so much for your time! Yours Kindly Christine Weaver

Hi
You can contact Dewald at [email protected] for research. He can get you his application form, which will give you some information where he fought, etc.
