The goal of this project is to create a network of information about the emigrants from York, England, who moved to Natal, South Africa, in 1850. We hope to honour their stories and their heritage, and create connections between their descendants and other people interested in preserving this history.

Right now this project just has one member, me. I am Kevin Turner.

Here are some of the tasks that I think need to be done. I'll be working on them, and could use your help:

  • capturing the names of the original settlers,
  • adding the names of succeeding and preceding generations, and
  • collating any other relevant historical data.
