My husbands grandparents are Alexander Thompson/ Thomson born Scotland who
married a Sarah Holmes, possibly born abt.1866
Avondale, Lanarkshire, Scotland.
They had six children: all born in Cape Town SA
A Sarah Thomson died May 26,1913 age 47. Buried at Brixton Cemetery,

The children are.
Ethel Thompson, Lillian Thompson. Alice Thompson, born December 16,1895,

Thomas Stuart Thompson ( my husbands father ) Born January 5, 1902, died
March 16,1986 Ontario, Canada.
Adam Scott Thompson born August 9, 1906 died July 29,1990 Cape Town SA.
The information that I am searching for is proof that this is the right
Sarah Thomson and that she married to
I am aware that this is not a lot of information but it is all that I have.
I have been trying to find this family for years
but have had no luck, I phoned Johannesburg Brixton Cemetery and asked
for information about Sarah Thomson /Holmes/Holmes,
her burial was a great breakthrough but I do not know how to follow up
I would appreciate if you could send me the email number that I could use
to look up Births, Marriages and Deaths.
I do hope that someone might be able to help.
Thank you Martina Thompson,
