PROJECT In memoriam

Project leader Alta Griffithsmemoriam project
This project is an initiative of the Genealogical Society of South Africa administered by the eGGSA branch.
In more recent times, people often prefer to be cremated after death, in which case there is no grave or tombstone and often no memorial acknowledging the life of the individual.
This project offers facilities to create a digital memorial with a photograph of the deceased, their details and a few paragraphs or memories of them.
You are welcome to add a memorial.  This facility is free and open to the public, and can be accessed through the following process:
  • Register and confirm the link sent to your email address;
  • Add the memorial.
  • Additions will be monitored by the web manager, prior to publication.
