We are trying to find any details about my husbands family - especially his mother. He was born Darren Bradley Scheepers. His father was born in South Africa, Benedict Antony Scheepers on 28 July 1940 and died in October 1995 in Witbank, TVL/ Gauteng. Darren's mother (Benedicts first wife?) is only known as Liz, and no idea what her maiden name is or if she and Benedict ever did marry as I cant find a marriage certificate online for them. She died in approx 1978 (give or take a year). Benedict remarried Jacqueline Anne Swires DOB 4.5.1954 and she died in March 2004. Benedicts mother was Cornelia Elizabeth Chuker DOB 21 October 1916, married to David Chuker. She was previously married to a ? Scheepers who is Benedicts father.,but As we dont know his name and again cant find a marriage certificate for them - we assume he died in WW2. David Chucker ( Benedicts stepfather) died on 30.6.1976 and is buried in Stellawood Cemetry in Durban, south Africa.
While we have some info, what we really want we cant find and that is any info on Darren's birth mother Liz. We also have loads of photos to share of Scheepers family and Liz's family dating back to early 1900's once we have some more details.
We have tried applying for documents from South Africa and we wait almost 2 years to be told to start again as it was probably lost in the post.
Please can anyone help.
