Welcome to the South African Settlers Resource Site

This site includes Settlers from the British Isles to South Africa during the 19th century,
particularly those who went in 1820, but also many who arrived before and after that
year. Information has been drawn from Settler files at the Albany Museum and Cory Library in
Grahamstown, South Africa; South African Death Notices (DN); Colonial Office papers (CO);
and the International Genealogical Index (IGI).

The main objective of this site is to try and establish a date and place of an event before the
settlers left the British Isles, thus providing a starting place for family research in local British
repositories.

This collection is the result of many years of research, and is by no means complete;
there are many records still being sifted through, so this is an ongoing endeavor that will
continue for years to come.

We hope shortly to provide a facility for contributors to contact us with additions and
corrections.

Alles van die beste!
