Hello All

Today i received Dorothea's death certificate.

Name Dorothea maud Knight
Maiden name Sloper (no Livermore)
Date and Place of Birth.....
30th October 1909 South Africa
Occupation Housekeeper Retired
Date of Reg 15th April 1998

So it looks like she was born in South Africa. If she was does anyone have any idea on how I can obtain her birth certificate? I dont know her mothers name and only have her fathers. Also would I be able to obtain a copy of er will iand if so how?
many thanks
Dionne

oooh so we have the South African link??

Do you think she mixed her own life into your fathers a little to make it more interesting?

Now where is the Shipton link? surely she should have been maiden name Shipton? Livermore, Sloper, Shipton, Knight is her history?

The maiden name in cert purposes is not the born name but your last previously used name. So her death cert should have maybe said Shipton? so maybe she didn't marry him afterall?? or Mr Knight didn't know of his existance?

Have you tried finding the family of the last husband to see if they can shed any light on her life ?

This is a very interesting site..

http://www.rupert.net/~lkool/page2.html#2%29%20BEGINNING%20YOUR

South Africa is one of the few countries where census enumeration records are destroyed. Only statistics from each census are kept. The Archives in Cape Town have the Cape Colony Publications which contain census lists for 1875, 1891, 1904 and 1911 only - but do not specify names of individuals.

The public has no direct access to the records held by the Department of Home Affairs in Pretoria. The facilities, files and records of the Department of Home Affairs are not open to the public or researchers. There is no index for perusal by the public. The public may submit applications for copies of birth, marriage and death certificates. Two types of certificates are available - an abridged certificate and a full certificate. For genealogical purposes, always request FULL certificates, as they contain more details. Within South Africa, application can be made at any Department of Home Affairs office. To apply for certificates from outside South Africa one must do so through the nearest South African Embassy, Consulate or High Commission. There is a charge associated with obtaining copies of these certificates. The Department of Home Affairs should not be your first choice when researching South African births, marriages or deaths for family history purposes. The Department is not attaining an acceptable level of service to the public, and most importantly, South African certificates are not as useful to family history research as in other countries. Rather try other sources first. The South African National Archives has some marriage and death registers older than 20 years, for some areas of the country, although the issue of official certificates can only be done by the Department of Home Affairs. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS) / Mormom Church, through its genealogical department, has microfilmed a number of South African civil registration records, which can be consulted at their Family History Centres. Not all Centres have the microfilms in stock - they may have to be ordered from the country's main Centre or from Salt Lake City, Utah.

GENEALOGICAL SOCIETIES
The main society in South Africa is the Genealogical Society of South Africa (http://www.ggsa.info/) , which was established in June 1964 and has regional branches. It does not undertake research. The Society and its branches publish journals and newsletters. For those living outside South Africa, the virtual branch of the GSSA is a great deal.


The Genealogical Institute of South Africa (http://www.sun.ac.za/gisa/) was formed in 1998 and is a private research centre, accessible to the public at a fee.

The Huguenot Society of South Africa (http://www.geocities.com/Heartland/Valley/8140/) preserves the French Huguenot heritage in South Africa. It collects information
about the Huguenots, arranges meetings and carries out genealogical research on Huguenot and related families.

The 1820 British Settlers records are mostly kept by the Albany Museum (http://www.ru.ac.za/departments/am/geneal.html) . The Genealogist is available to carry out research for a fee.
