Dear Adrian,
I don't like the expression 'buried". The Chevra Kaddisha is trying to get
all this material onto computers in Durban, Cape Town and Johannesburg, as
well as a lot of littler places, but not everything is available yet.
So the answer is definitely not buried.

Chag sameach
I am trying to get family details off tombstones in South Africa,
and was informed that all records prior to 1960 have been buried by
the Hevra Kadisha. I presume that this has been preserved somewhere
(although before days of computers)
If this is the information obtainable >from the Jewish Gen or fron the
UCT site there is sadly a lot of information unavailable >from these
Is this information correct ?
