Great grandmother Queenie Gladys Dawes
« on: Monday 07 December 15 11:12 GMT (UK) »
Good day
I'm hoping someone can help. I'm trying to find a birth date/marriage date for my greatgrandmother. I can't seem to track her anywhere. I found an entry on ancestor.co.za and I've ordered the document, which I think pertains to her death but I am unable to view it until it is ready for download in two weeks time. Her name pops up too on baptism records for her children.
Other than that I can't find any info. I think she was born in South Africa.
Her name was Queenie Gladys Dawes and she married a David Henry Lee Lovering (I've got his birth cert).

Thank you

Thank you for the reply. I suppose that is the estate file I'm waiting for - it doesn't have the info on I need straight off but thanks for the info and I will look into the website you've suggested.  :)
