I know my father was in the 2nd world war. My uncle Jack Roberts was married to a lady called Violet, they had two sons. I only know one son's name, he was known as Sydney. MY other uncles I dont have imformation on. I think William was called Bill for short and was a Policeman. My aunty Venetia was married to a Mr Heath, they had two children named Vincent Heath and Heather Heath. My aunt used to visit family (cousins) in England from whose side I dont know I would like to find out more about my parents, grand parents and all their families and where they came from and who they were. I was the last born of five children, my parents pasted away while I was very young. I was born when my parents were in their late forties, and pasted away without leaving any knowledge behind. My Sisters Stephanie Jeannette De Lange, Irma Duval and Moira Lynnette Mc Allister have no information to help me and my brother Ernest Theophilus Roberts Jnr is deceased.The family is/was mainly in the Kimberley district, Johannesburg area and Cape Town area.
