Welcome to the Cape Town Family History Society.

The Cape Town Family History Society is an open Society for anyone interested in their family who lived in or around Cape Town and its suburbs.

The next Meeting of the Cape Town Family History Society will be on Saturday 20th February 2016 at St John’s Church, Wynberg at 14:15 for 14:30

This month’s talk is by member Sigi Howes who will discuss how social media has helped her with her research into Iris Vaughan in a talk entitled: ‘Iris Vaughan: From Diary to Social Media’.  Iris Vaughan wrote her famous diary between the ages of about eight and twelve years at the beginning of the 1900s. This unique view of everyday life around the time of the Anglo-Boer War has been a much-loved South African biography for many years.
