I'm trying to use the search page and have failed. I'm trying to find
information on Joshua Humphrey Sigauke who died in New York in June 2010. Any
one who knew him can contact me.

My great grandfatherwas
I have no information
on him apart from his name.
I would love to know
where he was born (some say it was in Austria) and his date of birth and his
date of death.
I don't know who my
great-grandmother was either. I only know her first name was Johanna. I would
love to know her dates of birth & death and where she was born and her
was Mary Janjetich and she married Casper van Zyl. They had 2
daughters Helen Marion van Zyl and Agnes Edna Martha van Zyl (my mother) born 3
April 1926. Sadly Mary passed away in around 1928 and my mother & her
sister were removed from the Janjetich Family Farm and placed in Emerald Hill
Children's Home in Salisbury.
I would love to
know Mary's full names, her dates of birth & death as well. I think she was
born in South Africa.
The only real info I
have received from a family member is included here.
Janjetich the name on the deed
for the Good Luck Farm; Filabusi; Insiza district in 1928 transferred in favor of Government of Southern
Rhodesia on 18-5-1935. Married Johanna ? born Transvaal died 13-9-1942
in Bulawayo aged 74;
Antonie Yanjetick was on the deed of sale. Antoni Janjetich was
death certificate. They had Mary (van Zyl), Martha Helling nee Kennedy; Anne;
Antonette Kutchen and John.
My great grandfather :Antonie Yanjetick born in Austria 1860 died
31-3-1934 aged 74.
Then I would appreciate it IF you
could find out about my grandfather Casper van Zyl. Who were his
parents? Where did they come from and any other relevant information. I know he
had 2 brothers Willem van Zyl and Kornels(sp?) van Zyl.and a sister Elizabeth
van Zyl. If there were any other siblings, I am not sure. I know his parents
died and he and his siblings grew up with the Terblanche family near Bulawayo.
Casper was a member of the British South Africa Mounted Police in the mid to
late 1920's. He was away when Mary died and only returned quite a while later
to discover she had passed away. He then took his 2 very young daughters away
and they never saw their grandparents again.
He died in about 1956 in Bulawayo and
I remember he lived with his 2nd wife Molly and their children in Queens Park
Odette, I have been searching for
years now. I can't believe that the descendants of Janjetich and van
Zyls know nothing about their ancestors. I know more than they do and
as my mother was removed from the Janjetich Family, I should be the one who
knows even less! The same goes for the van Zyl descendants.
If you could assist me in finding out
this information, I would be eternally grateful.
I would like to search for my birthparents. I live in RSA but was born in
Zimbabwe. Unfortunately I do not have a lot of information about my birth but I
would still like to try though. Would you be able to assist me?
I was adopted by
birth, born 03/08/1981 in Bulawayo, Registered as Magdalena Elizabeth Cloete.
Apparently I was born at a nun-clinic. Social welfare handled the adoption. Magda Smit <firstname.lastname@example.org>
My late father’s cousin lived at 3 Beale Crescent Umtali in 1973. His name was
John Pierce. I know this as I discovered that his mother, a widow called
Florence Maud Pierce had died that year and as her relative his address had
been written on the death notice. I know that John was born in UK 1917 and
served in the forces during WW2 marrying a girl from what was then called
Rhodesia. They had a daughter but that is all I know and wonder if anyone would
have information on the family such as when John died, who was his wife, what
was his occupation and what happened to his daughter?
It would be lovely if anyone has anything of
interest for me.
Trying To Track Down:I am trying to track down Patricia Parker who is
my father's cousin ( Rodney Davies). I understand she used to work with a
houseboat management team at Kariba and I think now lives with a minister. She
will be about 75. My father tried to email her when my mum passed away in 2012
but he did not get a response so I am unsure if she is even still in the area.
I know this is probably a bit hopeful but if you do know her or where she has
gone please let me know or forward her my details. Thanks for your help Lesli
