Hi ~~ I've been in touch with Charli who is helping an elderly friend with her Bisset project. Upon seeing her material, thought it should be posted to the Bissett List and in turn captured by the Bisset(t) archived emails on Rootsweb for other researchers to access. Here is her line and if anyone can connect or add, please contact Charli at . This was the first I'd seen of the South African line.
