Welcome to the South African Flemmer family site

The Flemmer family arrived in South Africa on 1 February 1853.

They came from Denmark and settled in Cradock. Steve Herbert and 

Fay Lea worked for more than ten years (and continue to) researching the family history. The culmination of their efforts was the publication of  "The Story of the South African Flemmers". 

Along the way papers on ancestors of the South African branch and other branches of the family were published, in conjunction with the family gatherings. This site, with the links provided, gives a good deal of information about the family. More will be added as it comes to hand. Be sure to click on the little white arrows on the slideshows to see pics of the family. Apologies for some bad quality pics, these must have been downsized to e-mail. If you have any more pics to add, please e-mail Colleen Flemmer - collflemmer@gmail.com. All contributions of images and memories are hugely appreciated.


There are some costs to running the site and anyone who wants to contribute is welcome to do so - just mail Steve Herbert arcadia@49er.co.za on how to do it. Those family members who have responded to appeals for support are listed as Website Supporters. Their help is gratefully acknowledged.

We hope you find the site interesting and informative. Steve Herbert and Fay Lea always welcome any information or queries, so don't hesitate to mail them on genealogical issues. If you are having any issues with the site itself, please e-mail Colleen on collflemmer@gmail.com
