Brian Kaighin's Boer War Research
Offers to search his database of over 34,000 records comprising 90% of military personnel that died during the Boer War with a few others who were either injured or mentioned somewhere or other. Brian, who has extensive knowledge on the subject of Seige and Relief of Ladysmith and history of the town prior to 1900 also has a spin off of this interest in a second database of the town's residents prior to 1900, some 10,000 names which Brian is also willing to search at no charge. Should anyone be interested in searching the local archives in Pietermaritsburg for a 'lost' relative that lived in Natal then he is also willing to do that but here there would be a small charge. Contact by email.
