Maritz Family Tree

This will be the first attempt of the Maritz Family Tree on the information I currently have. I am hoping to take it further back but just need time. Please let me know if there is something incorrect or info that must be added. It took over 15 years to do the Norval and Botes trees, lets hope this doesn’t take so long. Contact me using the form
