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 held on Saturday 16 July 2016 at St John’s Church, Wynberg

Time: 14.15 for 14:30pm sharp

Professor Bill Nasson of Stellenbosch University will give a talk entitled: ‘A Greater South Africa and its Great War, 1914-1918′ at the Cape Town Family History Society’s next meeting. The talk will encompass the role played by South Africans in a global war – from the Western Front to the East Africa campaign – and the repercussions of the Great War on South Africa as a whole. Very pertinent subject matter for July as we remember the 100th anniversary of the Battle of the Somme.
