I look forward to that...I saw a copy of the book when in Grahamstown having
lunch with Phil Collett and his wife Margo (nee Shearing)..he and I found we
were linked through my Hart Ancestry and she and I are related through our
Thurtell/Murray many interesting books....thanks for offering to
share (as usual)...

> Dear listers
> Although I am not researching these lines, I was recently lent a copy of
Joan COLLETT's "A Time to Plant" and wanted to recommend it as a wonderful
chronology of the COLLETT family. The author was fortunate to have many
letters, written by James COLLETT and to him, as reference, as well as
several other sources. Most of us do not have the gift of such keepsakes in
our own families! The book is well written, making entertaining reading.
There are several good portrait and group photos, as well as a number of
genealogical tables. The book has been mentioned as a source several times
on our lists. We recently spent a weekend on a COLLETT farm at Fish River,
near Cradock. Our hosts have promised that next time we go there, they will
take me to the family graves, so those who are doing these families, "Watch
this space" for photographs!
