Wow im so excited to have received your message. Its been a misery to our family to as even my fathers brother who is the only one still alive doesnt know much. I have been trying to find my roots to see if i could get anestrial visa . I travelled thru britian in sept 2006 and from then i have being trying.
I will try to scan the letter of agreement between my great grandmother and the family who brought up my grandfather, their surname was Swart very south african. So my grandfather , Annie's son went by the name of John Fannon Swart. He married my grandmother her name was Francis Gertude Van Abo born in south africa in a place called Frankfort. Her parents where Danish/English. They married 23 January 1933 in Heilbron that is where i beleive that Mary Jane was living when Annie came to south africa. My grandparents had one daughter Dolly, Hendrik Albertus (My dad) and Johnny. My grandfather John Fannon Swart died 16 August 1974 he was living in Johannesburg. My father (Hendrik Albertus - Bertie was his nickname) married my mother Stella Velma Bosse and they had seven children. Im in the middle .
Do u have any photos of my great grandparents. It was a misery as to why Annie left and never made contact as i know my dad never know much of his past.
I have and awaiting copies from manchester of birth certificates, married and death certificates so that i could do some searching but having found someone who knows of my great grand parents is just so awesome.
