info from Marcus Anthony Rodgers  m.rodgers@savethechildren.org.uk

I am very keen to trace my roots back to India.  Unfortunately, I do not have much basic info to go on.  As a start I am trying to trace info regarding my paternal great grandfather, P N DAWSON.  He apparently settled in Kimberley, South Africa probably in the late 1800's.  He had a general dealer store in Kimberley, near the 'Big Hole' diamond mine.  One of his daughters, Enid was my grandmother, who was married to Michael Rodgers and their son, Benedict Leslie was my dad.  P N Dawson's other daughters were Harriet, Nellie and Martha.
Would appreciate it you could provide any further leads, if possible.
