I am seeking information about Frederick Gordon Bradford or any of his relatives.

Dear Johan,
I am seeking information about  Frederick Gordon Bradford or any of his relatives.
He was born in Eye, Peterborough, Northamptonshire, England, I believe,  in 1908 although it may have been a few years later. He was known as Gordon and emigrated to South Africa on 5th October 1949. Travelling from Southampton to Capetown aboard the Capetown Castle.
I am eager to receive any information as he is an important part of my family tree and little is known about him.
Any help you or your members can give me would be gratefully appreciated. 
Best wishes
John Bradford

Looking for Emmie Coetzee

I am looking for my friend from school with maiden name of Emmerentia Coetzee, called Emmie at school.
We went to school in Witbank and matriculated in 1963.
I knows that Emmie later lived in Pretoria and married. If I remember correctly, her husband was called Johan and he was in the Police force, but I could be wrong - it was long ago.
If any one knows where Emmie is, please email me Colleen McKechnie (Jacobs) at:
Thanks for taking the trouble.
