Wills and Probates


Death Notices

Death notices are essential documents for research in South Africa. These important documents typically supply age, date, and place of death, whether married nor not, names of children, and, if known, the names of the parents of the deceased, so are of great value. Death notices were held under the jurisdiction for which they were created. Prior to 1994, death notices were created under the following five jurisdictions:

Cape Province
Kimberley (Cape Province)
Natal
Orange Free State
Transvaal
