Welcome to Curiosities, my little corner of the net for the stories I find interesting, and think others may too. The main focus is on the history of Durban and the people who built her, but I’m not averse to wandering further afield too, on occasion.

Researching genealogy (family trees) will always be my first love, but I’m finding the historical research just as interesting and thankfully it’s not too different; still a challenge in a world that doesn’t see the value in old documents, headstones and monuments.

Researching a story takes time and with a full life, my time to dedicate to this site is limited so while my little site is still growing, I encourage you to pop over to my partner site, the very comprehensive allatsea.co.za … but make yourself a cuppa first – you’ll be there a while. 😉
