Opgaafrolle donated to Graaff-Reinet museum

The Cape Panel project donated a full printed series of the transcribed Graaff-Reinet tax censuses (1787-1828) to the Graaff-Reinet museum. The tax censuses of the Graaff-Reinet district, then a frontier district in the Cape Colony, were the first to be transcribed and standardised by the project. Says Dr Anziske Kayster, curator: ‘We are very impressed with this new addition to our archive. I can only imagine the amount of work that went into this.’
