Brief overview of South Africa’s ethnic diversity
There are few countries which have such a rich colonial history and an already diverse range of African tribes including the large number of Asians whose ancestors were brought in from the Indian subcontinent and Malaysia back in the day as slaves. That’s why it’s no wonder that there is a larger number of people in South Africa who would like to find out more on family lineage.
Most of the current „white” South Africans are descendants of families moving in the country from Europe. The main countries of discordance include: the Netherlands, the United Kingdom (for obvious reasons), France, Germany, Greece and Eastern Europe. It is generally easier for white Caucasians as their families already have a pretty good idea on where their ancestors came from.
The trickiest situation is the situation of those who are so-called „ colored” or mixed race. Remember South Africa has over 11 national language for a good reason. Back in the day the closest you could get is to ask around in your family or target the statistical bureau of your birthplace for more information on identity verification SA.
