Minette phone the education department in Bloem. Sorry I cannot remember the ladies name. You just give her your id number the date you wrote andwhere. Pay the money over in the form of a postal order that you sendto her and supply your address. She sorts it all out and sends it to you.

Dance, thanks for the info. I've tried contacting the Certificates section at the Bloem department, but the line was busy the whole day. Sent a mail as well, but don't know if that will get answered. I'm sure I'll have much more luck with them though than the department here in Joburg!!

One question - must you go to the department of education's office in the province you did your matric in? My husband did his matric in Benoni (Gauteng) and me in Odendaalsrus (Free State), and was wondering if I can't request it all kind of in one place rather that doing a run around between provincial departments....

Not sure about that. I am spending the weekend turfing out the filing cabinet and all paper work. Hopefully I will find the details of who andwhere to contact. I know I kept it. Will post it here as soon as I come across it. Try thebloem office for DH's as well. The worst they can do is point you in the right direction.

At last it seems like I'm on the right track - gave someone my fax number at the DOE in Bloem and they'll fax me the two forms for me and DH's requests for new certificates. I've still got to go to the police station and get an afidavit that the original was lost/stolen...mission, mission, mission!

Glad you are getting sorted out. Strange that you need to send affidavit. I just phoned to say that my son living in New Zealand had been robbed and I need to replace his certificate. No questions asked I got it sorted out. Did not even need to fill in any forms. They asked me for everything over the phone. Hmf :tickedoff: Maybe it was because he was out of the country but I was not even asked to provide proof of that. Still looking for that info for you.

Would be great if you find the info - I was also not aware that one would need an affidavit to get the matric results re-issued. I also never got the fax on Friday, so I'll phone in again on Monday, maybe I'm lucky and get to speak to the right person this time round!

Yip Snoozy strange as it sounds that is what happened. He is a chef and works long hours. He had his briefcase with all his docs in his car as he had things to sort out in his break. His car is parked right outside the kitchen door and when he came out at midnight after a long day found his car had been broken into. The police were great and on the scene taking fingerprints etc within minutes. They found the briefcase empty a few blocks away. 2 weeks later they found some of his other things but still no culprits or the docs that he needed most (passport, diplomas etc) His reaction....... must have been some Soweto shoppers!!!!

Thanks a million for the info. Ms Richter apparently does not work with the matric results anymore, but was helpful to point me in the right direction.
