Trying to find friend

Sylvia Halgreen (and I'm not sure of her middle name) is the eldest daughter of my aunt Sheilagh Halgreen (nee Cloete). She has a younger brother, Jeffrey, and sister Tessie (Theresa).
Phoytographs available on request -

Her father's name was Nic (Nicholas?). At some point they lived in Gatooma. Aunt Sheilagh, my mother's youngest sister, died in a motorcar accident on 22nd September 1970 at the age of 37
(21st August 1933 - 22 Sept 1970). She is buried in the Stutterheim, South Africa.
The first picture attached was taken after aunt Sheilagh's death when uncle Nic, Sylvia, Jeffrey and Tessie visited my parents (Japie and Phyllis Schwarz) at Isidenge Forest Station, Stutterheim, South Africa. Sylvia is 3rd from the right. Uncle Nic is at the right back. Jeffrey and Tessie are also on the photograph.
The second picture attached is of Sylvia, aunt Sheilagh and Tessie.
I would appreciate any information on my cousins as I've lost contact with them.
Kind Regards,
Carlene Schwarz

Trying to trace Susan Pamela nee Cornhill

I live in the UK & I am trying to trace Susan Pamela nee Cornhill whom I used to go to a Nursery Training College with in UK in the late 70's. I know she is living in the USA (& that Clare lives in the UK)  I wonder if you had any contact details for Susan, or if not Clare (so that I can ask her, as she is in the UK)

Sue & I were very good friends at college in Reading (as I came from Kenya) but we lost touch in the 80's when I got married & moved. She knew me as Diana Folder. My married name is now Diana MULLINGS.

I would really love to get reunited with Susan again, so if you could help me with any contact information or ask her to contact me, I would be absolutely thrilled. There are several of us girls from college that are trying to arrange reunions, & would love to hear of news of Susan.

Thank you so much in anticipation.
Diana Mullings.
