      Thank you for your suggestion, but the Mennonite Historical Society of
      Alberta is pretty unlikely to have anyone who has S.A. roots.

      I would, however, be happy to circulate this to another group - the Alberta
      Family Histories Society which is also located in Calgary - where there is a
      good chance that there are interested persons.

      >It is with great pleasure that we announce the dawning of a new era in
      >African genealogy. After lengthy discussions involving people

      >together to make it possible for the Genealogical Society of South Africa
      >(GSSA) to open a virtual branch.
      >This branch is known as eGSSA.
      >For many years there have been people who, for various reasons, could not
      >join a regular GSSA branch. Some of these reasons include living too far
      >from a branch or living outside South Africa. These people still have a
      >need to belong to a branch and to enjoy the benefits of GSSA membership,
      >such as receiving GSSA's flagship quarterly journal, Familia. GSSA has
      >established to meet these needs.
      >We plan for members of eGSSA to be able to hold virtual meetings in the
      >future, either via streaming technology or in a chat room a-la-MSN. .
      >It is also planned that eGSSA will make some of the GSSA products available
      >electronically, and that some databases could be placed on the Internet for
      >search purposes. This all depends on the availability of storage capacity.
