Durban- en Kustak - about

GSSA Helping visitorsDie Durban en Kus-tak het tans 37 lede wat almal versot is daarop om hul families na te vors.. Sommige het al goeie vordering gemaak en het selfs die resultate van hul navorsing publiseer. Baie lede skep genoë daarin om vrywillige werk vir die Genootskap te doen en dit bring mee dat meer inligting makliker toeganklik en beskikbaar raak vir navorsing.
Hulle bied vrywillig aan en help - met die transkripbering van die RSA 1984 kieserslys; die fotografeer van grafstene en die transkripbering van begraafplaas registers. Ons tak het die Stellawood begraafplaas registers voltooi(114 000 inskrywings) wat nou op CD beskikbaar is.
Onlangs het ons lede 'n indeks van alle huwelike geregistreer in Natal van 1845 tot 1955 (421 874 name) voltooi wat binnekort op die internet beskikbaar sal wees.

MEETING : SATURDAY 11 NOVEMBER 2016

Gail Richards of the Durban and Coastal Branch reports:
We had a fabulous meeting this afternoon, braving a fierce thunderstorm and torrential rain and a tiny bit of hail. What a pleasure it was to see so many new faces (10 visitors), and we wish them well with their new journey.
Eleanor Lea gave an outline of how genealogy research works and where it starts with the gathering of information relatives, and how to deal with stumbling blocks. We all agreed that we should have spent more time, and had more interest, when family stories were laughed and cried over. Click on the image to enlarge.

Our visitors raised what inroads they had made in to their Family Tree investigations – some at the very beginning (and dreadfully complex by all accounts), to those who had a fair measure of success with a few stumbling blocks along the way. If I can speak for my fellow members, it makes our hearts very happy when we see people interested in finding out about their heritage.


Here is an extract from a discourse from David Steindl-Rast:
“ Look at the faces of people whom you meet.
Each one has an incredible story behind their face,
A story that you could never fully fathom.
Not only their own story, but the story of their ancestors,
We all go back so far.
And in this present moment, on this day,
All the people you meet, all that life from generations
And from so many places all over the world,
Flows together and meets you hereLike a life-giving water, if you only open your heart and drink.”

{Steindl-Rast was born and raised in Vienna, Austria. He received his MA degree from the Vienna Academy of Fine Arts and his Ph.D. in experimental psychology from the University of Vienna (1952).}
