Nadat die Genealogiese Genootskap van Suid-Afrika in 1964 op die plaas Joostenberg in die destydse Kaap Provinsie gestig is het die Genootskap eers as ‘n landswye organisasie gefunksioneer. Op 4 Junie 1986 het die Wes-Kaap egter hul eie tak van die Genootskap gestig. Dave Mitchell was die eerste voorsitter. Die tak bedien die hele Skiereiland, Weskus, Boland en Overberg. Lidmaatskap is egter nie beperk tot hierdie gebiede nie.

Die Wes-Kaapse tak is ‘n genealogies aktiewe groep en kom elke tweede Saterdag van die maand bymekaar by SASNEV(Suid-Afrikaanse Sentrum vir Nederland en Vlaandere), Central Plein 4, Pinelands, Kaapstad. Vergaderings behels gewoonlik ‘n spreker oor ‘n interessante onderwerp en dan ‘n gesellige saamkuier agterna. Uitstappies na ander historiese plekke word ook soms onderneem. Die tak beskik ook oor ‘n takbiblioteek wat deur die lede geraadpleeg kan word en dit word ook SASNEV gehuisves.

Die tak gee die kwartaalblad Capensis uit, versprei ‘n kwartaallikse Nuusbrief, het ‘n Facebook bladsy en het verskeie interessante aktiweite, bv die begraafplaasprojek, werkswinkels en uitstallings deur die uitstalspan. Hierdie aktiwiteite het die taklede al verskeie pryse laat verower.

Samewerking bestaan ook onder andere met die Genealogiese Instituut van Suid-Afrika (GISA); die Hugenote Vereniging van Suid-Afrika (HVSA); die Drakensteinse Heemkring; die Wes-Kaapse Argief- en Rekordsdiens, Tygerberg Museum, die Cape Town Family History Society en Cape Town Family Research Forum

13 July 2019 Branch Meeting

GSSA branch meeting July 19

Dear member,

Marjorie Courtenay-Latimer was the first director of the East London Museum and an important pioneering scientist and conservationist. Mike Bruton, who knew Marjorie since childhood, has written the first biography of her fairy-tale life, in many ways stranger than fiction. Although she is best known for her role in the discovery of the first living coelacanth, Marjorie also achieved international ac-claim for many other discoveries and achievements. While researching her life story, Mike was also able to construct a genealogy for the Latimer family, which led to the discovery of a few surprises and even some family scandals. Marjorie lived a story worth telling and her life is a classic example of the triumph of the human spirit over adversity.

Professor Mike Bruton was born and educated in South Africa, where he obtained his PhD degree from Rhodes University. He initially followed a career in marine biology but, over the past two decades, has focused on sci-ence centre and museum design and development, the psychology of learning, and the history of Islamic science. He has received many international awards and honors, including the Fellowship of the Royal Society of South Africa (1984), Chevalier dans l’Ordre des Palmes Académique from France (2001), Lifetime Achievement Award from the National Science and Technology Forum, South Africa (2001), and an Emeritus Professorship from the University of Cape Town (2004).
