Welcome to the eGGSA Branch

Sue Mackay's most recent transcripts from the South African Commercial Advertiser have joined the large collection of her transcribed extracts from a early Cape newspapers from the originals located in the British National Archives at Kew.

The extracts are mainly of items to do with individuals, such as births, marriage and death announcements, as well as other interesting snippets such as the reports of the Veldcornets in 1837 of the families leaving the Eastern Cape for the interior.

These transcripts are available in the eGGSA Library - Newspaper section where a search facility is available to search through all these newspaper extracts.

Our grateful thanks to Sue for the enormous amount of time and effort she has devoted and is still devoting to this very valuable project and for making it available to all.
