Thanks also just came upon this site by chance, i was born in Springs on 15/07/1960 to Johannes Christoffel Goosen and Doreen Rosemary (Smith) Goosen My sister is Vera Catherine Goosen now Amos. At 2 years we moved to Durban lost all contact. My father fell ill with gillian barre syndrome and we never again had contact with any of the family since. If anyone can remember us let us know, i think my father had a brother who was much younger than him and i think it was Patrick -

Interesting that your father George Goosen was born in Muskegon Michigan. My father, George Goosen was born in Muskegon Michigan in 1916; son of George and Rena Goosen who both came from the Netherlands when they were children. I'm sure there is a connection here. Email me if you're interested in talking about this. Jan -

Willem Hendrik Jacobus Goosen

Hi I am Willem Hendrik Jacobus Goosen so was my father and his father was Jacobus Stephanus Goosen from Hertzogville Free State. My question is regarding the coat of arms as this is the second one I have seen and is unsure which is which. The one I have the helmet is pointing to the side and on the shield top left there is a raven on a white background, top right there are three broad yellow lines split by three narrow red lines. The bottom half is blue with 3 yellow stars and a white line running through two of the stars. The way I have it is when the helmet is looking at you it indicates that you are a descendant of blue blood and if it points to the side you are a descendant from worker class. Is all of us descendants from the same shoe maker that landed in the Cape or was there some aristocrats that came over as well. -

Fascinating info. I am trying to trace my family line back to Jean Baptiste, if possible. My father Pieter Johannes Goosen, born 29/05/1927, died 1987, married Elizabeth Swanepoel (born 17/08/1929) in 1950. Grandfather Pieter Nicolaas Goosen (I think), married a van der Bank widow, Johanna Gezina (I think) - never knew either of them. My father was born in Hobhouse, near Ladybrand in the Free State. I really do not know how to go about this process, please help if you can. -

doris goosen

Mijn naam is Doris Goosen. Het schijnt dat mijn voorouders van vaders kant, hun wortels hadden in Schokland. mijn grootvader, Henri Goosen werd al jong wees, samen met twee zusjes. Henri groeide op in het Burgerweeshuis in Amsterdam en zijn zusjes in het Maagdenhuis. Henri startte een muziekzaak in Den Haag en huwde Henriette Caron. Samen verhuisden ze met hun zoon Joop, mijn vader, rond 1915 naar 's Hertogenbosch, waar hij wederom een muziekhandel begon. Mijn vader huwde in 1930 Theodora Harperink. Samen kregen zij 14 kinderen. Han +, Helma, Marie Jose, Tineke, Helen, Henri, Martin, Gerard+ Trees, Ruud +, Joop, Doris, Monique en Margje. Mijn vader Joop, nam in 1931 de muziekzaak over en was musicus. verder dan mijn grootvader kom ik niet. Zijn er Goosen nazaten die meer over de Goosen tak van bijvoorbeeld Schokland weten. Of hoe mijn grootvader in Amsterdam terecht gekomen is. Waar mijn overgrootvader vandaan kwam? -
