Ancestry has published a “new” database to their collection: Free State Dutch Reformed Church Records for South Africa, covering the years 1848-1956. The images for this “new” database have been hosted at FamilySearch for some time, and can be freely found there for individuals without an Ancestry membership. There is no difference in the data at either website, and the images at Ancestry are actually hosted by FamilySearch. While the original images at FamilySearch are completely indexed there, the Ancestry database provides relevant “leafing” for users of FTM and Ancestry’s Online Family Trees.
The data included in this collection varies for each town, but may include christenings and marriages.
