Hi Peter,
There is no butting in here - everyones input helps and welcome to Rootschat a most friendly site! The best way forward is to approach the Preotoria archives directly - they may or may not answer, may or may not take a while!!!! Others there are very competent researchers in the Johannesburg area that will help you.
unfortunately i live in Durban so am unable to get there.

Thanks for the reply Ruth. I completely forgot that I had these details, knew I had them somewhere; I finally came across them with flamenco guitar transcriptions!

Thomas Henry jnr married Rachel Magdalena Swanepul (not sure of the spelling, it isn't in my writing) b.1878. d. 03.03.43. They had four children Another - would you believe? - Thomas Henry who married Henrietta Ann Taylor. Ann, b. 23.04.1897 - I have her in the group photo of 1902 - who married Michael Petrus. Phyillis Ester b.02.04.1899, who married William Wardrop Dixon, b.27.07.1886 at Shipley Gate. Notts. UK. and Theodora Stephany, b. 16.06.1904, she married Walter Pain. Can't believe I had these details, it isn't my mothers writing. Maybe an example of magic writing?

Thanks again for being interested Ruth.

Regards

Hi Ruth and Peter,

Great to see you have joined the "GIonN" ( "Genealogy Investigation on the Net" ) Peter. Ruth provided a great link for my MILLETT queries and by the look of it she is really getting, for you, a good idea of locations for ROWE  in South Africa.

hi everyone..
I lived in Cape town for 20 years so am very interested in your cornish connections as my family all originated from there.

Have you tried cornwall online census project? they have 1841 - 1901 census transcribed, the only thing is that you need to know from what district they came.
hope this proves helpful in your search!
regards

Dear Colin & Deb

It's been so long since I took a look at the RootsChat site I'd forgotten how to post a message. Yes, I'm still looking for my S.A. relatives. What irks me somewhat is the fact that I had all the relevant addresses (in Johannesburg) to hand just five years ago but lost them somewhere along the line after my wife died.

Best regards to you

Ruth,
I was wondering if there are OPC's { Online Parish Clerks for the various S/A Churchs}. And if so, if you could lead me in the direction of Web based Church listings and or web page address for OPC's.

Kind regards Colin

Hello everyone

I've been silent for many months but I am still trying to trace Rowes and Milletts who went out to Johannesburg around the turn of the last century. Right now I'd appreciate a little help with regard the NAAIRS database.
 
Given that using the TAB database I have made a hit with a reference, volume number etc... what do I do to access the documents referred to? 
 
Best wishes
