Cape Town Deceased Estates Index

Indexes to deceased estates are of vital importance to an family historian or genealogist try to track down their roots. To find out more about what information you will find in these records please consult our Learning Centre on Deceased Estates.

As this is an ongoing project not all dates of birth and death are provided  for the deceased nor is information on spouses always provided. As this information becomes available this the data will be added. Please feel free at anytime to provide us with updated information, omissions or errors.

References to these indexes are either  held at the Master of the High Court in the area specified.

Before documents are sent to the National Archives there is supposed to be a statutory period of 50 years where it remains with the provincial government  until it is transferred to the Master's  of the High Court Office.
