This Louis did in South Africa... He is also believed to have been born in same country... His grand children have asked me to help find their ancestors... Louis's son was killed in a bar fight in 1963 after divorcing his wife in '62... the kids (grndkids of Louis) have given me the Death Cert of Louis but know very little else. Having died in South Africa I am sure there is a probate. I did see one noted on ancestory but am not a subscriber...
Adding what info you do have from the death certificate would be most helpful to those who try to help. Does the DC have a location for his death? birth?
Forgive me...
