Website Links

This is a list of websites that I have found useful in my searches for information, over and above the regular Family Search, NAAIRS, Ancestry and Findmypast. A lot of these websites have further links to others of interest.
If you do know of any other useful websites that cover information for the 1820 Settlers, or South African genealogy in general, please let me know. I will add them to the list if I deem them suitable.
Many Thanks
