As far as I know our family is currently the only Tönjes in South Africa. My Mother is Hildburg Karola Sophie Tonjes born (Bokelman) and my father (decesed) was Heino Tonjes. My mother has papers as to parents from my mom and dads side. We moved down from Germany in 1975. I was born in Oldeburg / but we lived in the north-western part of west Germany (Bremen/Hude/Ganmderkasee).
