Looking for a NAAIRS MOOC record on Familysearch

+1 vote
Hi all,

I know what a wonderful, helpful, generous group you all are so I thought I'd try ask for a bit of help.

I found a result on NAAIRS that I haven't been able to find on Familysearch yet..and I'm rather useless at finding what I need in the unindexed section. Could somebody please help?

It's : KAB, MOOC, Vol#  6/9/2709, Ref 6234, 1924 - 1924, Odendaal, Dirk Cornelius. Estate Papers.

I can find the civil death, but I'm hoping the estate papers can help me get an idea on parent possibilities.

Is this him in probate records 

"South Africa, Cape Province, Probate Records of the Master of the High Court, 1834-1989," database with images, FamilySearch(https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:QGK2-TM5J : 28 September 2018), Dirk Cornelis Odendal, 1924; citing Probate, Grahamstown, Albany, Cape Province, South Africa, 1924, Pietermaritzburg Archives (Formerly Natal State Archives), South Africa; FHL microfilm 1,562,809.

Ahh thanks Marion, but unfortunately that's not the probate I'm looking for. Thanks for looking though! I really appreciate it
Where did he die or last live? There are a lot of people with his name.
The last place that I can find him mentioned is in the estate records of his parents in 1901 (joint will) and it appears that he was still alive.

I'm trying to see if [[Odendaal-1048|Dirk Cornelius Odendaal]] and [[Odendaal-823|Dirk Cornelius Odendaal]] are the same person.

If I could find the probate mentioned in my earlier post it might help me figure it out.

What Marion had linked to was Ref# 6222. Ref# 6234 (also for Dirk Cornelius Odendaal) is just a few pages further along: https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3Q9M-C9BB-BQM6-M?i=52. It appears that both records might refer to the same person.

oh lovely, thank you both so much..I'll go have a look now.
YES, YES, YES, it's him and it proves all my connections and links the two profiles up - definite match

Thank you!!!!
