    1. [SOUTH-AFRICA] Only two more DAYS to go
    2. Steve Hayes
    3. In just two days' time the SOUTH AFRICA genealogy mailing list, and all other Rootsweb genealogy mailing lists will be closing permanently. Since it became known that Rootsweb was closing down, several new members have joined the African Genealogy (afgen) list on groups.io, so here is some more information about it. It's for discussing African genealogy and family history and sharing family history information. This forum covers the entire continent of Africa. Group Information 94 Members 34 Topics, Last Post: Feb 27 Started on 11/02/19 The quickest way to join is to SEND A BLANK EMAIL to afgen+subscribe@groups.io For those new to groups.io forums, they have far more features than just a mailing list. If you visit the website at https://groups.io/g/afgen You can see some of these features, which include: a data base polls files uploaded by members photos uploaded by members a wiki I suggest that before building the wiki or adding databases, we discuss them in the forum itself. Possibilities for databases could include things like strays (people born in one country who died in another). The wiki could include things like addresses of archives repositories etc. -- Keep well, Steve Hayes Blog: http://hayesgreene.wordpress.com Web: http://www.khanya.org.za/famhist1.htm E-mail: shayes@dunelm.org.uk

    2. Keith Meintjes
    3. I have sent Jean a spreadsheet of about 572 entries for PRESTON in the 1984 Voters Roll. The 1972 roll has been photographed, and they are examining options to do character recognition on the images.

    3. Hi Keith.....I have been trying to find my Preston family, they arrived in Salisbury, Southern Rhodesia as it was known then in the early 50's. Their son and daughter Ronnie and Jean married and had their children in Rhodesia, my uncle Gussie (Augustus) died in Salisbury in Oct.1968 and I think my Aunt Edna was still alive in 1975 we were in touch with them at that time. Ronnie's children are named Gordon B.1957, Debbie B.1959, Mark B.1961 and Paul B.1967 I would love to be able to find them on a voters roll, if you could give me any direction on this Keith I would be very grateful.

    1. [SOUTH-AFRICA] The Follow-On SOUTH-AFRICA Genealogy Discussion List
    2. Keith Meintjes
    3. The Follow-On SOUTH-AFRICA Genealogy Discussion List There is a new list set up at Groups.io You can join now. Go to Groups.io to sign up. You will need an e-mail address and a password. After a couple of confirmation e-mails, you will be able to join the list. It is: https://groups.io/g/South-Africa I am enthusiastic about this development. Hopefully, we can somewhat revitalize the discussion once we are beyond the shortcomings of Rootsweb. The capabilities are greatly expanded and include attached files and embedded images. In the next few days you (all subscribers to this Rootsweb discussion list) will receive a personal message from me with my contact information, and then also an invitation from groups.io that will make it very easy for you to sign up.

    1. [SOUTH-AFRICA] South-Africa archive at Rootsweb.com
    2. Keith Meintjes
    3. The South-Africa discussion list was one of the first to be set up on Rootsweb (by Con Mercer). Rootsweb will cease to support discussion lists at the beginning of March 2020. The archives of the South-Africa list can be found here: https://lists.rootsweb.com/hyperkitty/list/south-africa.rootsweb.com <https://lists.rootsweb.com/hyperkitty/list/south-africa.rootsweb.com/2020/2/> Please save this link. 1. Rootsweb now masks the e-mail addresses used to post messages. This makes the archive much less useful, since you cannot contact the original poster. 2. These archives will NOT be transferred to the new South-Africa list at Groups.io . According to Rootsweb, the content of messages belongs to the original posters. If there is a topic that interests you, please re-open it with a message on the list at Groups.io . We will do our best to help you.

    3. Good morning Gerald Are you related to the Piggs of Piggs Peak? Some years ago, whilst researching the Field family tree (of the greater Durban area) I spoke to Vivenne Daphne PIGG (born WISE) (born 27 Jun 1923), who lived in Pietermaritzburg and told me that she possessed the family Bible. When I started questioning her about her family she said "let me go and get the Bible". We chatted on for some little while and she then said that she was sorry but she needed to go and put the Bible down, as it was crushing her legs!! How insensitive of me not to realize that the "family Bible" was obviously quite large and heavy!
