Tracing family

2016-09-01 06:00

I WONDER whether any of your readers may be able to help me.

I am seeking information on Olwen Margaret Hardy, nee Roberts.

She was born in 1907 in Llanelli, South Wales, UK, and first came to South Africa with her parents William Henry and Annie Roberts, returning to Wales with her mother and brother Edward Aneurin in 1923.

She married Victor L. Hardy in England in 1939.

He was born in Cape Town in 1910. They returned to South Africa and I believe they had a son, William Lawrence.

Her brother-in-law was Lieutenant-Colonel Laurence Arthur Hardy, who died in Pietermaritzburg in 2002.

This information is for family history purposes. If you can help with any information, please reply to
