The Emigrant’s Guide to South Africa

During the 1800s and early 1900’s there were lots of books written about emigration from the British Isles to various locations in the world. They are invaluable sources of background information for family history researchers, as in most cases they contain an immense amount of information about shipping, costs, conditions, employment, descriptions and lifestyle and facilities of the places concerned.
