South Africa SIG #SouthAfrica What is possible to research in Cape Town??? #southafrica

Adam Eisen <aeisen@...>

Hi all,
I am planning a business trip to Cape Town and was considering taking a day
there to do some research while. I was hoping some of you might be able to
tell me where I might go and what might be possible to achieve.

My South Africa research is centered around my ggf, Harry Rubenstein, who
emigrated >from Courland (Latvia) with his wife to Philadelphia USA in 1888.
According to my family, Harry travelled several times >from Philadelphia to
South Africa, apparently to work in the Orange Free State. Many in the
family suspect he may have also had family there - which is not unlikely
given the large number of Courlanders that came to Safrica.

At any rate, will I be able to easily search arrival records for him and if
so where and how would I approach this best? Are there any other records
that might be worth checking as well?
