Do you know who has created/administering this website:

http://www.southafricansettlers.com/

It's an interesting site as most of the entries appear to have a citation.

Agreed it is an interesting site, but I notice I have descrepancies with some of the Sutton details.

Why are some of the names closed for discussion? I would like to query the details.

Chris,

I think that as it appears to be quite a new site it is still under development. Commenting looks like it will be come available in due course as there is a piece on the front page that indicates:

"We hope shortly to provide a facility for contributors to contact us with additions and
corrections."

Hi Alastair and others, I think this site is run by Mike Wright. Been up quite a while and looks like it has had a face lift. There are some discrepancies so you still need to do your own homework.

Mike's website is called Destination Albany and can be found at:

Mike's site has a lot more information including BMD transcriptions of registers.
