Paynes in Gauteng, South Africa
I need to know whether there are many entries for PAYNE
in the telephone directory for the Johannesburg area, or in any other public source such as a register of voters, or a census.
I am an amateur genealogist living in Athlone, Ireland and at I am helping Robert Waithman compile his family
tree and re-establish contact with his Payne relatives in the Johannesburg area.
Adam Payne, son of Herbert Payne, married Honor Pansy Waithman in Galway, Ireland in 1942 and the couple migrated to South Africa and settled in or near Johannesburg.
If there were a very small number of Payne entries in the directory I could send a letter to each but if it is a very large number then this would be cumbersome.
Any help will be much appreciated.
