I myself live in the USA, although I was born in South Africa. I don't know whether Herbert Baumann's descendants are still in SA. He lived in Port Elizabeth, and married Miemie van Huysteen. Their children were Caroline, Jeff and Johanna.
All the best,

I don't know if this is of interest, but my relative, Herbert Baumann,
was a POW on St. Helena during the Boer War. He returned to South
Africa almost blind.
With kind regards,

I note from The Tourist guide to the Anglo Boer War printed in 2000
that Mr Basil George whose Grandfather remained on the island was
operating as a guide at that time.

Schulenburg' s contributions and wonder if this is a relative of your

would be of interest to meet with you also.
