Family History Research
Posted by Vi Wagner on 2001/10/02

I am researching my family along 4 lines: Wagner van Heerden Chaplin Whittaker As I live in England, I have started with the two English surnames and am currently on a course studying how to do this in the UK. I will be visiting South Africa for a short visit in November to talk to a few elderly relatives and to pick up documents which will help me in the search. Different generations of the family lived in the Durban, Pietermaritzburg, Craddock, Eshowe and Mooi River areas. Are there any family history societies or organisations which could give advice or help on researching in these parts of the country. Or can anyone give advice on good books on genealogy in RSA? I'd be grateful for any help.
