Dear Cape Town Family History Society,
I am struggling to make the final connection in a lost family search on behalf of my cousin, which I believe will end in Cape Town, South Africa.
My cousin Fiona’s (b.1962, Scotland) maiden name is Cloud. Her father was Norman Cloud (1925-2013, Scotland).
Norman’s sister (Fiona’s Aunt) was Mary Mann Richardson Cloud (1923-1960, b.Scotland, d.Johannesburg,SA).
Mary married a South African, Cyril Kneale Kenneth Newton (1915-1987, b&d.South Africa) in London, England, in 1945. He had a spell in the RAF.
Their daughter Evelynne Mary Newton (Fiona’s lost cousin) was born 9th October 1946 in South Africa.
Evelynne married a Mr.Jones in about 1971, and they seem to have had a son Mitchell Mann Jones on 30th January 1972 in South Africa.
I found Evelynne Mary Jones and Mitchell Mann Jones on the Voters List 2004 to vote at Timour Hall Primary School, Plumstead, Western Cape, South Africa.
Evelynne is a retired bookkeeper, and will be 70 on 9th October this year 2016. Mitchell would now be 44.
If you are unable to make the connection, perhaps you could suggest places I could post a Notice about my search locally, such as a good newspaper or website advertisement section.
I have used GenDatabase.com and Ancestor.co.za to get this far, and I have the family tree on Ancestry.co.uk if you want to see it.
Fiona would love to make contact with her cousin Evelynne.
Hopefully it is not too late!
