Looking for Elizabeth "Betty" Wilkinson

Born circa 1932 in Cape Town

Parents divorced ( Herbert "Bert" and Maud ) I think in 1943

Cant find birth marriage or death records for Betty

She was in Fish Hoek in 1953/54 and possibly JoBurg late 60's early 70's

Have you tried Cyndis List? Its a respected genealogical portal.

Although many of the results are links to FamilySearch, there might be a couple new to you. She may be mentioned, with a married name, if her parent's Estates went to Probate. You'd have to send for a copy which, I understand, can take months to arrive.

In case she didn't marry, have you looked at the various online phone books?
