Six videos of a family gathering at Die Bos in 1983.

In 1983, my brother Charles organised a gathering of the descendants of my grandfather “Hennie Bos” (6th generation owner Hendrik Johannes Louw Morkel, 1854 – 1926) at Die Bos. It was 270 years after stamouers Philip Morkel and Catharina Pasman commenced farming at Onverwacht, later named Die Bos. Cousin Hanna (8th generation owner Hendrik Johannes Louw Morkel) was the host and about eighty family attended. Being in Perth, I was unable to be there, but Charles provided a VHS tape made of the event. I had the tape digitised and, using the iMovie application on the iMAc, produced a number of You Tube clips, which we have posted on this website.
