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

will be held on Sat 16 May 2015 at St John’s Church, Wynberg.  14.15 for 14:30pm

 At our next meeting Professor Mike Bruton will discuss his recently published autobiography ‘When I was a Fish. Tales of an Ichthyologist’ and also the research that he has conducted on the history of the Bruton family in England and South Africa. Perhaps best known for his research on the coelacanth, he has lead the search for coelacanth populations off the East African coast and off islands in the Western Indian Ocean and has many exciting tales to tell. His book will be available for sale at a discount.
