I have been trying to find the death details for my gt grandfatherArthur George WattsHe came to South Africa with his wife Janet just before 1897 from Melbourne, Victoria
He was supposed to die on Dec 13 1907 but I can't find any buriel orrecord of his death in the indexes of the Sth African records officesHe was living in the Durban area until he went to Jburg in 1904
After his death on Dec 13 1907 His wife Janet left Sth Africa on the ship "Commonwealth" with theirthree surviving children
She disembarked in Melbourne on 20 Mar 1908Can anybody suggest a way of determining if he did indeed die or not.Is there a Johannesburg newspaper that has been indexed for death notices?I'm fast running out of ideas!
I have been researching the Woodward, Ashley and Shearer Families for a few years and have quite a lot of information n the Shearer Family and still looking. Unfortunately I have found on My Heritage part of the Shearer Family managed by Priscilla Anne Shearer. I need to get hold of her to inform her of family members missing and/or incorrect but am unable to get hold of her due to my having to become a Premium Member on My Heritage - which with our rate of exchange will cost me R 62.79 a month - something I simply cannot afford.
Is there anyone who may know of how I can contact her.
