Lost an Ancestor? Maybe they came to South Africa. South African Genealogy has collected lots of Passenger Lists and made them freely available for you to search through. There is also a new database of Military Deserters in the Cape Colony during the 1800s. More databases will be added soon. These records are a work in progress so be sure to visit often to see what has been updated.
More information on the current database here.
