Genealogy will put you on fascinating paths where you will learn not only about your ancestors, but also about your history and culture. By joining eGSSA you become part of the genealogical community at large.
Membership will bring you the following:
Stay up to date with genealogical developments with four issues of eFamilia, the official journal of the Genealogical Society of South Africa (GSSA), and four issues of genesis, the eGSSA newsletter
Refine your research skills with our learning resources
Save at the eGSSA Bookstore where you will find useful CD products and other publications
You can complete your application on-line and submit it via the Internet
For those people who are not currently GSSA members, or cannot join a current branch, this is an ideal opportunity to become part of GSSA and to step into this exciting era.
Members of the GSSA can use our online shop to order photographs of documents in three repositories of the South African Archives, those in Bloemfontein, Pietermaritzburg, Cape Town and Pretoria at a special price.
NB. The Cape Town Archives Repository has banned mechanical copying by any means of documents in their care. The KAB offers its own copying service (printed, not digital, copies). We cannot, therefore, accept any orders for KAB documents. We are still offering this service for documents from the Bloemfontein, Pietermaritzburg and Pretoria Archive repositories. Please see our FAQ for the details of this service.
eGSSA is an indispensable resource for genealogists and family historians seeking research guidance, publications and materials, and opportunities to interact with others who share the same interest
