South African records - does anyone have access?

Postby phsvm » Sun Dec 15, 2019 12:40 pm

I don't have a world wide sub to any sites and there are a couple of records I like to see from South Africa if anyone can help.

William Percy Thomson b. Kendal 1868 and his wife Ruth nee Bland b. Beccles 1869 both appear to have entries in a South Africa Biographial Index.

Could anyone let me know what these entries say and if there appear to be any other SA references to them? Many thanks.

There are also South African records for the couple on FamilySearch, including a 1902 baptism and death record for son Alwyn Gardner Thomson. I don't see a South African baptism yet for their other son Paul. FS is very good for (free) South African records.
