1. Desertion/divorce/ [1]
I think I asked this before but I am darned if I can find where or when! Bear with me? In England up to Divorce Act 1857, if a man deserted his wife and had no further contact with her and simply disappeared, he was considered to be dead after 7 years and she could then remarry.It was one way, a cheap way too of ending a rotten marriage at a time when divorce was almost impossible. Did this apply anywhere in South Africa? 19thC/20thC? thanks Pat

Oh dear. Trying to assist you and not making any significant impact must be so frustrating. Have you retrieved these documents from the Archives yet? Maybe a brother, son, cousin, nephew or father?

Hi Everyone, I passed the very helpful sailing list websites provided by you guys on to my fellow researcher, my 5th cousin, Sukie Hunter...she responded thus... We are anxious to find exactly when my great great grandfather, Herbert Howard Browne (married Maria Susannah Wilhelmina Hart) sailed to the Cape, and on which you can see the supposition is that he travelled to the Cape in about 1840/ if anyone is reasearching their own family journeys and you happen to see the name Herbert Brown

Dear Viv Thanks so much for the information you provided from your archives. I was about to post a request if anyone had any information on the children of Benjamin Patrick- he seems to have been a very busy man!! Thanks so much for all this transcribing. Wow you are wonderful. Does anyone on the list have a picture of Benjamin Patrick??? (Forever hopeful.) Regards Norma Patrick

10. Re: [ZA-EC] Ship "Northampton" info from Brit Maritime Records.... [1]
Hi Coral, Thanks so much - we must have been on this website at the same time! I found it difficult to search but cam e up with this very same doc. I then went into PMB archives, but there is hardly anything around the dates 1848 - 1860, unless I am using the wrong search words. I tried ship, shipping, persons, lists, Northampton, e[i]mmigrants, and a few more. Not much at all, nothing relevant. I think I should visit the PMB archives - maybe there is more, just not on NAAIRS. I also found KIMBELL's

Hi Kathryn, I found the Genesreunited site and tried to register but do not have a credit card - by choice, and a cheque will take too long to reach them! My curiosity is at a peak now to know whether Jan Hendryk KYMDELL has done any research. Would you be so kind as to send him my e-mail address and ask him to contact me or vice versa? Thanks for all the help and advice. Best regards, Viv. ----- Original Message ----- From: "Kathryn Bax" To:

Another little snippet. During the Kat river Rebellion of 1851 Alexander Mcgillewie was ordered to rgo with a Fingo force and Alice commando to Fort Armstrong held by the rebels. John Bradfield's house was in flames and Alexander managed to rescue only two books. Alexander and Lydia were then living in Alice Pat ----- Original Message ----- From: "Leanne Starkey" To: Sent: Tuesday, August 23, 2005 11:00 PM Subject: Re: [ZA-EC] BRADFI

Taken from CO53/17 National Archives, Kew, London. I have no further knowledge of people mentioned here, having merely transcribed the information from the newspapers, but these entries were photographed at Kew using a digital camera, some in better focus than others, and transcribed at home, so if you are related to someone mentioned I may be able to send you a .jpg file of the entry on the understanding that it would be for personal use and not for publication on a website, which would violate my digital
18. References to living - right of reply [1]
Thanks to all listers who commented on my enquiry about the rights and wrongs of references to living people. Obviously different opinions and no clear answer, but, I think, a useful expression of views. Yes, I know that someone with malicious intent can readily find out details about anyone these days, but my main concern was more about the kind of information divulged. I was prompted to make the posting after reading a message telling all and sundry about another suffering from cancer and in a bad

Hankey is more inland and oranges and nuts are mainly farmed here. There has to be a cemetery there too. I don't have any historical information on the Ferry o
22. Reference to living persons [1]
Hello all A recent posting got me wondering about the guidelines and etiquette concerning searching for (or mentioning) living persons. Im not an expert, but I have seen plenty of family trees etc being put out for public display or access, in which names are omitted, to be replaced with Living JONES or Living VAN ZYL etc. This is a common-sense approach to respecting privacy. Besides, who knows what debt- collectors, or persons harbouring grudges are out there. After all every message we post

I am so embarrassed...I could kill the person who sent it to me...he knew I would fall for it!! Becky had a laugh too, and went on to say it was a jolly good thing it wasn't a porn site!! I'd have had to go out and shoot myself!! I won't do that again... not check out the site before I send the info! I just thought it was SUCH a good idea!! I've recently been trying to see if my grandmother's old school has pictures of her and her had a gastly name Queen Ethelburgha's in Harrowgate, Yorkshire!
