The Hartlam Fest
The eGSSA and the Southern Cape Branch participated in the Hartlam festivities at Hartenbos. The Western Cape Branch was present in spirit but not in body by lending us their genealogical banner.
This was a wonderful experience for the Southern Cape Branch since it was our first experience with an exhibition. All this can be attributed to Alta and her fellow members of the eGSSA from Port Elizabeth, Stilbaai and Cape Town who have shown us how to pep up the occasion by displaying enthusiasm and exhibiting some genealogical sources.
The exhibition created a great deal of interest resulting in the Southern Cape Branch membership increased by new and enthiusiastic members.
"We are raring to go for next year's Hartlam Festivities."
