    It is strange because whites and blacks do not speak so much there, but I do not know they are pure there I do not know, but that’s fine! : D

    White South African DNA is 5% not European on average.

      I think so, they say it’s impossible to be pure white, but for me it’s funny that she doesn’t have the blood of that country, she should have 10 percent African descent or something :S

    If “Grobbelaar” is her mother’s maiden name, she descends from Johan Grobler and Geertruyd Knoesen (the daughter of Cornelis Knoetzen and Dirkje Helms). Johan was born, c. 1678, in Tangermünde, Germany and came to South Africa in about 1708. Geertruyd was the daugher of a Danish immigrant and of a German/Dutch mother.

    “Petsch” is an unusual surname for South Africa. She might descend from this man ( but I’m not sure.
