Can you give any more detail on the OGILVIE side? There is already quite a
large tree and some baptisms... but there appear to be more than one family.
Is Violet a family name? Who were Marjorie Violets' parents?
I have found several DE KEIWIT (13)entries on the archives and 26 using a
variation DE KIEWIET(I have sent you an example offlist)Do you know who
james's father was or any "family" names that could give us clues?
Your grandfathers name is spelled "Maritz" and "mauritz" and he divorced
Marjorie in 1959. (I have sent you a copy of this page offlist)
