Welcome to the 1820 Settlers to South Africa Web Site

   Note to Everyone and visitors to this website - The 1820 Settler Bicentennial is coming up, and I am on a mission to find portrait photos or photos of portrait paintings of the original 1820 Settlers, that I can add to this website and other possible publications. They may be family photos that include the settler(s), where I can 'crop' them out as individuals. They must be free of any copyright, and the submitter must be free to submit them for publication.
Which ones do I need? If you view an 1820 Settler info page under the 1820 Settler Genealogies, and there is no photo on the top left, just an outline placeholder, then those are the ones that I would like. If there IS a photo on the top left, I obviously do have one, but is your copy better than mine?
Please email them to me at paul@1820settlers.com as attachments to an email, and letting me know who is/are the subject(s) of the photo. All the photos received will be acknowledged on the website, if used, with you as the submitter.
Many Thanks.

This Genealogy website is a totally free website, dedicated to the British Settlers to South Africa in 1820, their descendants and researchers.
All the genealogical information has been generously supplied or posted by the members of this website, or has been transcribed from various websites, mailing lists, reports, documents or books by interested persons or myself, with relevant source information where ever it was possible.
My objective with the website is to build a complete and accurate record of all the 1820 Settlers and their families with relevant historical information about them before the information is lost to us.

It is NOT a social media website, and I do not keep contact details for everyone listed on this website. I also reserve the right to reject and/or refuse to publish certain data, photos, etc, and family trees not related to my hobby or not within my scope for this website

It should not be necessary for you to register or login IF you are only going to view the data on the website.

If you spot an error, or have an update or addition of data that you are willing to share with the rest of the 1820 Settler researchers, please let me know. Email me directly or use the feedback form.
It would also help me in identifying the correct Settler for whom you have updates, if you could give me the Settler ID or Person ID number with that detail. I can then post it to the correct person in the database. To date I have established family trees of 2835 of the identified 3859 1820 Settlers who landed in South Africa.
If you would like to submit a complete GEDCOM file of an 1820 Settler family, to as many generations as you care to publish, I will willingly publish it to the Trees section on your behalf. I do have a privacy policy where I try to not publish any life dates or data of potentially living persons, just their names.

Please also check the 'What's New' link, which will give an indication of the last time I did an update of all the data, etc., to the website.

 Many Thanks
      Paul Tanner-Tremaine.
