I want to find out if anyone of my family took part in the boer war.
My name is Ryno Joubert, my father is Leonard Daniel Joubert (born in 1967), my grandfather is Willem Johannes Joubert (born in 1943), my great grandfather is Leendert Daniel Joubert (born in 1907), my great great grandfather is Josua Andries Joubert (born in 1856) and my great great great grandfather is Gideon Johannes Joubert (born in 1812)
The only one who could have served in the Boer war (1899-1902) was Josua Andries Joubert and the only name partially matching that in the records is a Josua Joubert who served with the Carolina Commando.
Where did your family, particularly Josua, come from? The commandos were raised locally from the men in the area.
