I saw your post while browsing this site.
My grandmother was Johanna Gertrude Benecke (born 1876 or 77 in Uitenhage).
Johanna's mother had been a Miss Caroline Bubb, who first married a Mr Kaltenbrunner and then had a second marriage to Franze Benecke.
Caroline and Franz had 6 children as far as I know - John, Johanna,Hester,Maria,Lillian and Frank.
Johanna married my grandfather Henry Eldridge (born Oudsthoorn) in either Uitenhage or Port Elizabeth.
I'm pretty keen to expand family knowledge,so any information we can share would be good.
My name is Russell Eldridge. I am a retired newspaper editor living in Australia. I grew up in South Africa and have lived in Australia since 1979.
I have started researching my family history but am finding it extraordinarily difficult to do it from over here.
I realise your post is over a year old, but I hope to hear from you.
