Does anyone on here know how I can get more information than I have as BELOW?? for Clara Maria MUNNIK nee'ROURKE. Family papers say she died at the seige of MAFEKING, or as some documents say "the seige of Kimberley." I do not know who she married. Her parents were Michael John ROURKE married to Mary Anne KILDEA. Clara was born Feb 1870 in Cape Town SA.- cheers from Victoria Australia - Lynda Scott nee' ROURKE.

There must be an error in the reference number for Clara Maria's death notice in the Cape Archives - I had a look at that DN and it is for a "John Lewis."

Thank you Kinsy - I Copy and Pasted the info for Claras death off. Thank you so much. I have found her death certs - One from Kimberley hosp. and one from Registrars. They had her date 14 Feb 1900 and length of stay - 18 Days. Her Parents names, although they had Marion instead of Mary Ann, and Michael. It didnt have her husbands name, but said Married and it had two Children - Unknown names and gender. and it also had that she died of the Peripheral Neuritus, as above.

I now am looking for Marriage certs, Knowing her married name is MUNNICK from a family owned newspaper clipping. Maybe then after finding that I will find birth certs for 2 children.

ON with the search....???? and Tanx, I much appreciated your help.- Lynda nee ROURKE.

The marriages for this period are on-line but un-indexed if you go to familysearch.org and look in the catalog for Cape Province you can find the marriages under Civil records - here are the links
d) Cape marriages
*Index: https://familysearch.org/search/catalog/1108558?availability=Family%20History%20Library
*1696-1899: https://familysearch.org/search/catalog/244034?availability=Family%20History%20Library
*1900-1930: https://familysearch.org/search/catalog/671879?availability=Family%20History%20Library
*1931-1955: https://familysearch.org/search/catalog/815585?availability=Family%20History%20Library

If you look for the names in the index you can then determine what year to look for in the folders - be aware that all the index images are duplicated - and you will probably have to go through a number of years to find what you are looking for. The actual marriage records are filed in date order.
Happy searching
