In line with social distancing, Historical Papers will only be able to offer seating for a limited number of 3 researchers in our Reading Room.  Please contact us before your arrival in order to book your space.

Wearing a mask will be compulsory!



We will continue assisting with remote enquiries, particularly for researchers who do not reside in South Africa, including:

- telephonic or email based guidance through our online platforms - Landline tel.no. (011)717-1940 (International: +27 11 717-1940)
- verification of requests relating to our archival collections, including genealogical enquiries relating to the Anglican Church in Southern Africa
- very limited scanning and document provision by email of archival documents where possible and reasonable

Please also consult the Historical Papers homepage for access to our various finding aids and guidance; but also make use of our search platform, for which you can use this LINK

Staff members will continue checking their emails on a daily basis, even when not being at their physical work place. Please see staff emails HERE.

We will communicate any change in regulations provided by the Government of South Africa and the University of the Witwatersrand. Also follow the communication which the University provides on the WITS HOME PAGE.

Please also access the global map of archives which are available online and of which Historical Papers is part, initiated by the International Council on Archives (ICA) - please use this LINK
