Looking for Francis Lindhout
« on: December 14, 2013, 07:30:05 PM »
Hi,

I was born in Oranjemund in 1961. I lived there with my parents Anna and Cornelis Hirdes and my two brothers Tony and Kees until 1965. My Mom was close friends with Siska Lindhout. I will be coming to Cape Town in January 2014 and am hoping to reconnect with Francis Lindhout. I'd be grateful if someone could put me in touch with her. I think that's Francis in the picture with my Mom and brothers.

More than 10 years ago, Francis Lindhout and her husband lived in Bloubergrand . She was an art teacher at that time. I don't know if she still lives there. I hope you will find her.
