Project Objective

Identify and add as many as possible of the slaves who were Progenitors of the Cape of Good Hope to this project. For all other slaves please add them to the connected project South African Slaves.

The VOC brought slaves to the Cape of Good Hope from mainly the Indian Ocean Basin, but also elsewhere. Countries included: Abyssinia, Angola, Bangladesh (Bengal?), East Indies(Indonesia), Guinea, India, Japan, Madagascar, Mozambique. They are a special bunch who link us back to so many people and places and they deserve special recognition for being our ancestors.

How to participate

Link the slaves known to be living at the Cape of Good Hope to the project.
