Good news re the return of archivalia to this Natal Repository. The first to arrive home from their sojourn in temporary storage are the MSCE - Deceased Estate - files: currently up to 1951 are available to the public.
The entire exercise, i.e. the transfer of all archivalia back to the Repository, is expected to take several months. As each group is returned, access will be temporarily suspended while unpacking and re-shelving takes place.
It’s a mammoth task and during this phase the staff at Pietermaritzburg deserve continued patience and understanding from family historians and other researchers.
