Aim and Scope

This project is intended to record all the victims of South African Farm Attacks in the Northern Cape province and link them to our Geni tree.

How to Participate

Add the names of victims with their age and date of death according to Province below (Or email Donovan Penaluna: don(at)diyden.net). If the person is on Geni please add the link to their profile, and make this a bold entry. If the person is not on Geni but has an external source, add a link to an external source but do not make the link bold. This will help us to see who still needs to be added/found on Geni.
