The next meeting of the Cape Town Family History Society will be on

Saturday 20th January 2018 at St John’s Church, Wynberg.  14.15 for 14:30pm


We are extremely lucky to have one of our own members, Anne Johnston from Belfast, Northern Ireland, to simplify the mysteries of DNA testing for us , in her talk entitled ‘What Can DNA Testing Do For You?’  Anne is a Project Administrator for the North of Ireland DNA Project so she knows what she is talking about! The project was established by the North of Ireland Family History Society to use DNA testing as an aid to making genealogical connections within and between families whose roots are in the North of Ireland. (However, the principles are the same wherever you may live or originate from).

The objectives of the project are to:

  • promote DNA testing by those whose heritage is from the North of Ireland.
  • offer information, support and training for those who test and manage the DNA tests of others.
  • share DNA results to facilitate genealogical connections.

For further information contact David 021 715 5104 davidslingsby@telkomsa.net

or Ann on 021 782 7277 annsmythe@gmail.com

Donations of sandwiches and cakes/biscuits are appreciated for tea, as well as help in the kitchen! Visitors R20.00 per person.

Old genealogists never die, they just lose their census.
