There is a National Product CD No.075 listing all stories that have been published about families in Familia since 1964. ISBN 978-0-9921833-9-4 records some 750 South African Families.
We also have an incomplete list of “Who is Researching Who”
An index of names mentioned in Chronicles from issue No.1 in 1987 is available.
