Johanna Wilhelmina Eldridge Master's Office / Orphan Chamber
« on: Thursday 17 May 18 19:09 BST (UK) »
Having had my interest sparked by a You Tube video about utilising Family Search for South Africa research I decided at last to try and sort out my several SA ancestors.  I have been relatively successful but cannot find the following Estate File on Family Search:

Johanna Wilhelmina Eldridge nee Chiappini Death Date 17 Oct 1875 Volume 6/9/153 Reference 2145
Master's Office / Orphan Chamber, Cape Town.

I have found her baptism and marriage records and the Estate File for her husband William Yates Eldridge who died in 1908 in Cape Town. Help appreciated.

Thanks very much Sylvia.  That must have taken a bit of finding! :)

I'm impressed.  Any chance of me bothering you for how you did it?  I'm about to post another one for a David Graeme MacLaren.
