Beginning March 2nd, 2020 the Mailing Lists functionality on RootsWeb will be discontinued. Users will no longer be able to send outgoing emails or accept incoming emails. Additionally, administration tools will no longer be available to list administrators and mailing lists will be put into an archival state.
Administrators may save the emails in their list prior to March 2nd. After that, mailing list archives will remain available and searchable on RootsWeb

If anyone is aware of any activities to commemorate the 200th anniversary
of the 1820 Settlers in 2020, please post them here.
Among the official settlers, I count Oldham in my ancestors.
Also, there is Robert Powrie and family. They were not part of the plan,
but were given passage to Simonstown on a British navy ship in 1820. Robert
had previously been in the British army, and his son, James, my ancestor,
was born in Cape Town. They were repatriated to England, then came back. I
like to joke that James Powrie was the only 1820 Settler who had been born
in South Africa!

Does anyone have access to any of the Swellendam baptism registers for
the era roughly around 1800 to 1830? I have been in contact with the
Drostdy Museum and they only have records from the Anglican Church for a
much later period than that.
I will be really grateful if anyone can help me in tracing the parents
of my 2nd great-grandfather, John Miles TAYLOR, who seems to be a
descendant of the Moodie settlers. My guess is that he was born round
about 1818, but all my quests in finding more info on him have ended in
Thanks a whole bunch!
