Books about the Roux family

This book contains a detailed family tree of the descendants of Roux, Paul (1665), from the time of his arrival in the Cape until the 1900's. While it mentions Roux, Antoine Augustin Joseph (1825) as the root of another possible family tree, it does not contain any information on his descendants after the first generation.
Possible errors in this book
  • Entry: b2c4d6 Page:8 for Daniël Roux (1763/09/11 - ) states that Daniël married Anna Susanna Kringe in 1787, but at the same time give Anna's birth date as being in 1785. This would have made Anna 2 years old at the time of the marriage.
