Microfilm# 0363060 Marriages: Wienen and Pietermaritzburg: Natal Grahamstown: Cape, Smithfield: Orange Free State, Heidelberg: Transvaal Item ? This is installment #6. Dates follow American convention of MMDDYY. Please be advised that as a source, this is probably in the questionable category. This film appears to be a copy of Edie Muir POTGIETERs handwritten notes. I have extracted only the Grahamstown entries, with some minor exceptions for surnames of interest to someone on this list. I have no idea what she used as her original source for these marriages. Also, most names will be repeated as she listed each marriage alphabetically by spouse. It would be faster for me to type them twice than to try to edit the list. Transcribed by Ellen Stanton
