South Africa / The more I think
« on: Saturday 31 July 10 21:14 BST (UK)  »
The more I think, the more I believe my disappearing  great grandfather headed for SA. His name was Blundell. The first name I am convinced he changed: if not both names. I believe he went to SA in 1897. I may be wrong.  Indications are that his brother (Joseph ) went in 1892  to SA. and It might be that they went together.   (No sign of Joseph either). Joseph was  a baker: a trade that works the world over : his brother was less skilled than that. Joseph was born in 1867 his brother in 1861. Can anyone help me find either of them?
