Johannesburg Heritage Foundation maintains a library and a research resource centre on all things related to Johannesburg history at the Holy Family College in Parktown. Sarah Weham is a researcher at the Centre and has an encyclopedic knowledge about Johannesburg, its origins, and it's people. If you want to know a street name, Sarah will either know the answer or know where to find the answer. Sarah is available to assist tour guides in researching background information for Johannesburg Heritage's excellent and unusual tours of our city. Sarah published a book on the history of St Joseph's Children's home in Sophiatown in 2015.
Sarah joins Kathy Munro on Heritage today to talk about her work and her passion for Johannesburg history. We shall be exploring Sophiatown history and St Joseph's home. This is the opportunity to learn about the JHF resource centre, and why it is an essential Johannesburg treasure .
