Subject: [ZA-IB] Catherine Elliott and St George's Cathedral
Date: Wed, 7 Jul 2010 16:37:50 +0100
I am determined to find information on Catherine Elliott. I have tried to
find her marriage certificate without success ( I have tried Kimberley and
Bloemfontein as this is a possibility but I am beginning to think that her
records have been lost) . She emigrated to Australia from SA so Naairs does
not have a death certificate that I can find. I am now trying to find a
birth certificate. I have read all the articles telling me how difficult
this is but I have so little to go on that I am going to try this route
Although she married Lauritz Emil Nielsen who was a Roman Catholic she may
have been christened as a Methodist or an Anglican (or even Dutch Reformed -
but I will leave DR till later).
Recently I requested a look up at St George's Cathedral and I got the reply
below. However I don't know what to do now i.e. I don't know how to locate
the film number given. Can anyone help. PLEASE! I know it is a long shot but
I want to try everything I can and I know that She went to Kimberley in 1882
and left Kimberley in 1892 and lived in Cape Town. What I don't know is
where she came from before going to Kimberley otherwise I could be more
specific in my search. I have a record which tells me she was born somewhere
in SA. Since there was just about nothing in Kimberley in 1882 I doubt that
she was born in Kimberley but I may be wrong.

Subject: St. George's Cathedral: Christenings LOOK-UP
I was wondering if you could do a look-up for the following:
Catherine ELLIOTT born 1862 - her parents were Edgar Alexander ELLIOTT and
Catherine ELLIOTT (maiden name SOLOMON).
If you come across any other christenings with the above parents please let
The reply from St George's
I'm afraid the look ups stop at the end of 1829, and I found no Elliotts
prior to then.
Civil christenings from 3/1/1849 to 5/6/1870 are available on film 1295052,
at the end of the film, which is at the Latter Day Saints (Mormons),
Exhibition Rd., London SW7.
