My Grandfather and his family immigrated to South Africa c.1881-2, and I
am unable to make a firm connection back to England. Can some kind
person tell me
1 - Is there a Government department which keeps track of immigrants
and/or new citizens to whom I could apply for details
preferrably by E-mail. Exact date and name of ship unknown.
2 Grandfather apparently had a job to go to working on the
railways, East London, S.A., which is where he died some years
Does anyone know if there was some kind of government scheme
to provide railway workers from England?
All suggestions gratefully received. Vickie
