About Cranko Family Tree
Please sign in to see more.
Welcome to the Cranko Family Tree Website! Many hours of work have been put into the research and 
documentation of our mutual ancestors. We hope you will enjoy and benefit from the information 
presented here. If you have any information to correct entries or add to, please do not hesitate to 
contact the webmaster and the tree will be updated. We have attempted to be as accurate as 
possible based on various documents, research and personal knowledge. Apologies to any families if 
some details seem incorrect. 
Kranko, Krankoor and Cranko in South Africa are various names of what is Cranko today. This can be 
seen from a number of baptisms in the early 1800's of persons Kranko (as well as census documents). 
It was in the mid/later 1800's that Kranko was changed to Cranko. An early example with documentary 
evidence is Frederik Jacob Wilhelm Kranko (Baptised 1848 - Deceased 1899), but later with various 
children his name is shown as Frederick Jacob Willem Cranko and his headstone as Frederick JW 
Other Cranko's researched are also included in this website but not necessarily directly connected 
at this point to the progenitor Theunis Karel Kranko (Cranko). It is hoped that as research 
continues and with feedback from you, these persons will eventually have a link to a particular 

Other families are also featured who are connected in one manner or another and it is hoped these 
branches of the tree may grow as well. 

After all we are all family of one huge, big tree.
