On 17 March 2018, in a somewhat cramped Protea bookshop on a hot Stellenbosch morning Francois Cleophas, Elizabeth van Heyningen, Chris van der Merwe and Con de Wet presented a thoroughly interesting talk on the 2017 volume, Selections from the Letters of President M.T. Steyn, 1904-1910. There was a small but very engaged audience present. A call to join the VRS was made, and each chair had a pamphlet on it. We'll see whether there will be any new [...]

Eeufees

2019-10-18T11:46:18+00:00September 22nd, 2019|Eeufees|

Die Vereniging het in Augustus 2018 honderd jaar oud geword. Sedert sy stigting in 1918 het dit feitlik elke jaar ʼn volume gepubliseer van oorspronklike Suid-Afrikaanse historiese dokumente, noukeurig geredigeer. Die strewe van die stigters was om deur die stigting ʼn besef tuis te bring van die historiese wortels van die eerste nuwe Suid-Afrika, die Unie van Suid-Afrika, wat in 1910 tot stand gekom het. Nou, in die era van die tweede nuwe Suid-Afrika, streef die Vereniging na dieselfde doel, [...]

2017 AGM

2019-08-18T15:13:26+00:00October 5th, 2017|Onlangse Aktiwiteite|

The 98th AGM was a momentous occasion as the great majority of the members present, as well as others voting by proxy, decided that the time has come to change the name of the Van Riebeeck Society. The name was originally chosen as a compromise and an attempt at unifying the Dutch/Afrikaans and English groups in the country. The name has lost relevance and is in any case not descriptive of the range of publications produced by the Society. The [...]
