My husband and I are interested in tracing the roots of our family and have been doing so since 1956, so we now have about 25+Gb of info on our computer about the families of both of us, and we are interested in making contact with any member of any of the families we are researching to share information, looking also for photos and certificates for any family member to add to our huge files on those families. After all these years they are still a "work in progress" and we would like more please

Do you know someone who can help? Share this:

Below is a link to the South African Genealogical Reference Centre on

I'm not sure if you have to register first, but it is free. There are many helpful links to sites that will help you and a link to a page called Random Acts of Geni Kindness-South Africa, where volunteers experienced in research in this area are willing to help.

Hope this helps in your research

thank you for the suggestion we have tried that site previously, but the problem with that site is that it takes one to the geni site, we can register on that site for free, but then to obtain info a fee has to be paid, and after spending so much money over the years on certificates, subscription to sites such as Ancestry and other similar sites, we are now trying to fill in the gaps we have in our family history files by finding the bits and pieces we are missing on sites that are free. We have beren researching since 1956, have about 40 plus Gb now on our computer, and would just like to fill in some holes, knock down a few more brick walls, and hope to find somebody who can help us for free, and in return we can do research in Australia for anybody who can help us
