Thank you in advance

Hi Macca,

Try https://ancestry24.com - not free, but fairly cheap!

NAAIRS has quite a few death notices and probate records here: https://www.national.archives.gov.za/naairs.htm

and eGSSA provide a cheap photographic service for many record offices here: https://www.eggsa.org/index.htm

Note that the NAAIRS system is currently suffering from a bug that says there are no Search IDs available, but this mainly manifests itself in the evening and over weekends when the offices are shut. But just persist and you will eventually get in!

Hope that helps,

Maurice :cool:
