South Africa / Valuation rolls
« on: Tuesday 08 September 20 14:43 BST (UK)  »
Does anyone know of a site with a list of owners and occupiers of buildings in Cape Town similar to the valuation rolls in Scotlandspeople. Looking for 1940 - 1970.

If someone could put an approximate date on this photo it would help me decide whether this Mrs Bower is the Mother or Wife of Andrew Bower.

Ayrshire / Kilwinning farm
« on: Friday 15 November 19 20:00 GMT (UK)  »
Found the name 'Barrel Holes'  farm in the Kilwinning area while searching Shedden ancestors. It seems a strange name for a farm and wonder if could be an incorrect transcription. Has anybody heard of this name ? It would be around 1800 +-.
